BREWSTER PARSONS UPS COHON TO EP; ADDS PRODUCER WHITLEY
From the release:
Company founder/EP Darcy Parsons announced that award-winning visual effects studio Brewster Parsons has promoted Jason Cohon to Executive Producer and welcomed Producer Zack Whitley to the BP team. These key moves continue Brewster Parsons’ steady growth in the commercial marketplace and beyond.
Whitley comes to Brewster Parsons after runs in Detroit and Minneapolis, as well as Mirada and Method Studios in Los Angeles. His accomplishments include: Super Bowl commercials, the wildly successful Love Has No Labels for Ad Council, and installations for UCLA’s Centennial Event and IBM’s Watson Experience.
“In all my experience in creative production, I’ve never seen a place with such balance,” says Whitley of Brewster Parsons. “Darcy has assembled a team that executes VFX on the very highest levels, and they work smart — never wasting creative energy. I’m honored to be part of that.”
“Zack brings a flexible, future-facing mindset to project management,” says Brewster Parsons’ newly named EP Jason Cohon, “Having worked with him previously, I am very excited to team up with Zack again at BP. He has a knack for implementing new technologies that allow us to create mind-bending visuals.”
Cohon joined Brewster Parsons in June of 2014 as Senior Producer. Since then, he has overseen expansion of the company’s 3D pipeline and acquisition of new talent. As Executive Producer, Cohon will continue with these duties and head up strategic Business Development and Technology.
Darcy Parsons states, “With the addition of Zack and Jason’s move to EP, we are poised to continue what has already been a busy 2015.” Parsons continues, “I have been partnering with Jason since day one when he arrived. It is such a natural fit and he has a great sense of the industry and creative strategy. Zack brings a fresh perspective to post-production. He has such a well-rounded background, our clients love him and his impact has been immediate.”
