NEW YORK — Slate Media Group’s PostWorks New York has acquired the assets of Mega Playground, a post facility located at 609 Greenwich Street in New York’s West Village. Simultaneously, the company entered into a new long-term lease at 609 Greenwich Street.
Slate Media Group provides post services to film and television producers through several brands, including Technicolor-PostWorks New York, PostWorks New York, and the bi-coastal Hula Post Production. Collectively, Slate Media Group companies provide a full range of post services, including dailies, lab services, editorial system rentals, editorial conform, color grading, finishing, graphics, sound editorial and sound finishing.
Mega Playground was formed in 1994 and serves a diverse clientele that includes major film and television studios, broadcasters, independent producers, documentary filmmakers and others.
“This acquisition significantly adds much needed capacity to our New York operations,” explains Slate Media Group New York’s COO, Rob DeMartin. With Slate Media’s other West Village and Soho footprint, the combined companies will offer 185,000 square feet of space for post services, making it one of New York City’s largest facilities.
“We are thrilled to combine the Mega Playground facilities and services with the Slate Media Group family of companies,” continues DeMartin. “We are excited by the potential for our clients, both current and new.”
