HOLLYWOOD — Panavision’s Light Iron company has appointed Josh Haynie to the newly-created role of vice president of US operations. Based in Light Iron’s Hollywood facility, Haynie will be responsible for leveraging the company’s resources across Los Angeles, New York, New Orleans, and future locations.
Haynie joins Light Iron after spending 13 years at Efilm, where, as managing director, he maintained direct responsibility for all aspects of the company’s operations. This included EC3 (on-location services), facility dailies, trailers, digital intermediate, home video, and restoration. Haynie managed a team of more than 100 employees, and more than 650 digital intermediates were completed under his watch. His career also includes positions at Sunset Digital, Octane/Lightning Dubs and Sunset Post.
“Light Iron has experienced significant growth since being acquired by Panavision,” says Peter Cioni, the company’s CFO. “To continue on this trajectory, we’re bringing in a leader to assist us with navigating the complexities that commonly impact larger businesses. Josh’s experience is unmatched: he has strong operational and managerial skills, as well as deep client relationships, which will enable Light Iron to continue to grow and be a leader in the industry.”
“From the expansion of Light Iron’s episodic services and New York facilities to the development of the color science in the new Millennium DXL camera, it is clear that the integration of Panavision and Light Iron brings significant benefits to clients,” adds Haynie. “I look forward to working with the entire team to further elevate a level of service that is unprecedented in our industry.”
