Slate Media Group acquires assets from Telecorps

BURBANK — Slate Media Group, which has acquired a substantial portion of the assets of Telecorps Holdings, will operate under the Technicolor - PostWorks New York, PostWorks New York, Hula Post Production and Wexler Video brands.

As part of its strategic growth plan, Slate has acquired the assets of Technicolor Creative Services in New York. Combined with PostWorks NY, Technicolor – PostWorks NY will have access to the proprietary color science, post production workflow and resources of Technicolor’s global business.  

“Through this combination and in partnership with Technicolor we can provide a unique set of talent and resources for all our customers in the New York production community for services including film laboratory, dailies processing, near-set dailies, editorial, color grading, finishing and sound — all through one source,” explains David Rosen, Slate’s chairman and CEO. “This acquisition allows these companies to service their clients more completely and at a higher level.”
In California, Slate is aligning its brand strength. Wexler Video is known for its expertise in the production and post production solutions it provides to the reality television space. Hula Post offers film and television services. By consolidating efforts through the strength and experience of these two brands, and in combination with Technicolor – PostWorks New York, Slate Media will look to maximize its service offerings to meet the technology and service needs of film and television producers in the scripted and un-scripted markets.
