United We Stand

In Los Angeles, James Lipetzky directed a piece for United Way of Orange County. Shot over five days on location in Orange County,  Foundation’s Evan Cohen pulled double duty on this shoot as both Line Producer and AD.

The shoot culminated with 50 people on the beach in Newport Beach.  James Lipetzky commented; “I was deeply moved by some of the stories I encountered while on this shoot, of those helped by United Way. The work they do to help those in need really is exceptional.” Stay tuned for more on this piece in the future!

Foundation Gears Up for Guerrant

Megan Guerrant has joined the Team at Foundation Content in Chicago as a producer, and we are thrilled to have her!

Prior to honing her skills in the technical world of color and finishing at Filmworkers, she spent six years at DraftFCB as a production business manager.  The fact that she also has experience in the world of event production from a nearly four year position at event production company Williams/Gerard Productions is a bonus as Foundation continues to expand the scope of their creative business model into new and exciting arenas.

Joining Foundation also brings her back to the beginning of her career where she spent time working on independent films with Christopher Coppola and music videos at Black Dog Films/RSA.  Guerrant says, ” I am excited about getting involved creatively in the projects I work on.  There is a lot of opportunity at Foundation for me to explore my creative side as well as my strategic/business side.”

Foundation President, Samantha Hart says, “Our EP, Tracy Heropkie and I have known and admired Megan for quite some time.  Now that our Los Angeles office has taken off, we found a need to have another producer on hand to cover the influx of work coming into Chicago for our graphics, color, smoke and finishing departments as well as editorial.  It’s exciting to see our LA clients clamoring to get a color session with Tom Rovak or to work with our talented designers.  Having run this company for the past six years, it is refreshing to  see that work coming into this marketplace.”

Executive Producer, Tracy Heropkie adds, “With the recent addition of editor Christina Stumpf, we are looking to add one additional editor and then we think the Chicago office will be positioned right where we want it to be.”

Welcome to the team, Megan!

Patel’s Got Game

Foundation’s Anna Patel directed and edited a series of web docs to support the launch of Current TV’s 4TH AND FOREVER which premieres Thursday, May 26th at 9/8c.


The series follows the storied Long Beach Polytechnic High School football team as they tackle the 2010 season.  Poly has graduated more NFL players than any other high school in America.  We sat down with a few alumni to learn what makes this such a successful football program.  The first clip features Marcedes Lewis (Poly ’02) of the Jacksonville Jaguars and premiered on ESPN.com.

Instant Gratification
