(San Francisco, CA - February 17, 2006) Leading postproduction company Spy Post has appointed Lori Joseph as Producer. Joseph will work closely with VP/Senior Executive Producer Anastacia Maggioncalda to produce for the telecine, visual effects and finishing departments.
"As we continue to grow our business, it is important to provide our clients with the level of production support needed to meet their expectations," says Eric Hanson, Spy Post CEO. "Lori has a proven track record as a producer in a variety of mediums and brings great focus, energy and professionalism to our team."
"I'm excited to be a part of the process and growth that is happening at Spy Post," remarks Lori Joseph. "I had worked with the artists here on a freelance basis and really enjoyed my experience. I was very selective about where I wanted to spend my many hours and felt that Spy Post was the best place for me."
Joseph began her career at ILM and enjoyed a nine-year tenure working her way up from a production assistant to Post Production Supervisor on special effects TV commercials. Projects at ILM included Acura, Gatorade, Coors Light, ADT, Pontiac, Energizer and Intel. Most recently, she has been freelancing at notable companies including Radium, The Orphanage, Phoenix Editorial, Palma VFX, and Mekanism to name a few. Projects include graphics and editorial for the Sony booth at E3, cinematics for the EA games "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers," "The Lord of the Rings: The Third Age" and "Urbz," a commercial for Gatorade, a music video for Kanye West and a DVD series for Carmen Electra.
While at ILM, Joseph would bring finishing work to Radium where she first met Anastacia Maggioncalda, then the Senior Executive Producer of the visual effects company. When Joseph later went freelance, Maggioncalda brought her into Radium as a VFX Producer on several projects. The two reconnected again when Joseph joined Groove Eleven as an Associate Producer and Maggioncalda was the Producer/Director of New Business Development for the interactive design and branding firm.
Aside from her postproduction work, Joseph is singer/songwriter/guitar player of the cult underground band, Acid King, which has been together for 13 years and has toured the US, Europe and is on its way to Japan.
