(Santa Monica, California--December 13, 2007) Independent Post house West Post Digital, has just celebrated its one year anniversary in the now fully-operational 20,000 sq ft custom-designed facility opened in November 2006.
The occasion was marked by a blow-out party celebrating the launch of their most recent accomplishment; VFX and commercial finishing entity, ELICIT Effects.
Best known for their exemplary servicing, hi-end technologies, and innovative HD workflows, West Post continues to raise the bar having now added Audio Post, Visual Effects complete with VFX/insert stage rental, and production offices to their mainstay HD editorial, finishing with da vinci Color Correction and extensive conversion/dubbing services. Year one in the new Santa Monica Media District location brought a number of accomplishments:
“It has been quite a year—client response to the new facility has been totally overwhelming” states West Post CEO Todd Brown. “We’ve made significant technical advancements; in fact our engineer Michael Baker won the award for Outstanding Achievement in 2007 from router manufacturer Network Electronics for his work here at West Post. We’ve also added Teranex image & format conversion tools and HDCAM SR to the facility as a result of client feedback. We chose 2007 to further expand our offerings by opening our own VFX Company and are very excited to have Les Umberger running ELICIT Effects with the latest Flame right here in the West Post building in Santa Monica—central to all the local media companies. This compliments our existing state-of-the-art 5.1 audio and voiceover recording services. In addition, our 6,000 Sq Ft insert stage was refurbished and has since attracted Dell Computers, MTV & Spike TV who’ve all shot commercials and TV footage here. The production office space we have available has been a very popular addition to our services—specifically with MTV & HBO. I feel we’ve achieved our first year objectives—we have strengthened our capabilities and offer clients the most complete video and audio post production services on the west side with parking space right outside. We capped off a great year with a great party on our stage as our way of saying thank you to our staff, clients and future clients (and all their friends).”
“Our unique model is running on all 12 cylinders and a turbo!” agrees West Post’s Kenny Fields. “We’ve seen tremendous and exciting growth over the past year—it seems an appropriate time to not only take stock of our accomplishments; but to also acknowledge the vision, dedication and hard work of our West Post Staff and the support of our loyal clients who help make it all possible.”
