NEW YORK — WildChild (www.wildchildpost.com) has signed Melissa Miller as their new executive producer. She brings deep agency experience, a long post production career, and 20 years of experience in general market advertising. Miller will lead the company’s expansion, which includes the recruitment of editors in all phases of the business. The goal is to build distinct divisions that will each focus on one medium of production, be it film, content, promos, and general market advertising.
Even as she builds these distinct new divisions, Miller will work to bolster WildChild’s traditional areas of strength, including color correction, 2D, 3D, VFX and graphics with Flame, Smoke, Resolve and other systems. Her main focus, however, will be in recruiting and developing talent.
“I take a particular interest in helping to build and nurture editors’ careers, because I look not just at what they’ve done, but at what their real interests are,” states Miller. “I look at their reel and sell them on the merits of trying to do one project or another. That’s usually what starts their career, because the confidence that I give them that they can hit it out of the park leads to other things.”
Prior to joining WildChild, Miller worked at Mackenzie Cutler NY, Spine, Berlin Cameron, Fallon NY, Deutsch, Margeotis and BBDO.
