CULVER CITY, CA — Bi-coastal production company Original (www.originalfilm.com) has named editor/director Jonathan Del Gatto creative director of its newly-formed post production division. Original’s (formerly Original Film) new post offering will allow it to provide turnkey services for broadcast advertising, branded content and other forms of visual media.
EP Joe Piccirillo says clients are increasingly coming to the company for turnkey solutions. “We are evolving and are no longer just about production. Clients are now coming to us for design and editorial. We are a resource for whatever they need.”
The new division will offer editorial, design, motion graphics, visual effects and animation. It will handle Original’s productions and will be open to outside producers.
Del Gatto has worked in commercial editing for more than than 15 years. He comes from the Chicago-based digital studio Foundation Content, and also spent seven years at Terminal Media, the editorial house he founded, as well as eight years at Red Car. In addition to leading the new venture at Original, he will offer his services as a director and editor. He has already directed and edited a series of Web video for Jamba Juice and The Neighbor Agency, Los Angeles, titled The Ambassadors of Wow.
