Friends Electric Hits the US with LA-based EP Belinda Blacklock
From the release:
Friends Electric announces the alliance of three distinct sales and marketing teams stateside. The brainchild of VFX studio Electric Theatre Collective, Friends Electric is a full-service production company and creative consultancy based in London and Los Angeles.
Belinda Blacklock, who previously headed up the Passion Pictures NY studio, has been appointed Executive Producer of the LA office. Blacklock will effectively be working across both time zones, collaborating closely with the London studio headed by EP Alex Webster. Blacklock has been instrumental in securing a dynamic arsenal in three independent repping firms, covering strategic sales and management for the entire US.
Working closely with Blacklock on the west coast is the Red Rep team, comprised of Holly Ross and Jeremy Hodges. Friends Electric has secured NY-based talent management firm Miss Smith Inc, to handle representation for the East Coast territory. Miss Smith Inc. is comprised of Jamie Scalera, Sasha Stern and Julie Margilaj.
Rounding out the lineup is Nathan Skillicorn and his Chicago-based boutique repping company Heart, Brains & Nerve as the company’s Midwest and Texas repping partner.
This sales-force to be reckoned with was strategically assembled to allow Friends Electric to be a trusted resource to the creative industries, both in the realm of traditional advertising and emerging media. Each member brings their own sterling reputation and unique contacts to the table, and cannot wait to dive head-first into the varied creative opportunities that Friends Electric is capable of bringing to life.
Friends Electric launched in January 2017 as a new breed of creative company. They bring together some of the best commercial animation and design talent in the world to that hallowed space where creativity collides with technology, engaging audiences, having a blast and making friends wherever they go – domestically or abroad.
Friends Electric proudly represents Pete Candeland, Foam Studio, Lucas Zanotto, Myoshka, No Ghost, Polynoid, Silent, and Woodblock.
