HOLLYWOOD — Panavision’s Light Iron business has appointed Rick Anthony to the newly created role of general manager at its New York facility. The Manhattan studio added a second floor in 2016, tripling its inventory of editorial suites.
Anthony previously held GM roles at Pac Lab and New York Lab/Postworks/Moving Images, overseeing teams from lab through digital workflows. He began his career at the New York film lab DuArt, where he was a technical supervisor for many years.
“Our New York facility has grown significantly each year since opening in 2013,” says Josh Haynie, the company’s VP of US operations. “Rick brings a wealth of experience in facility management, customer service and client relationships, which will enable us to continue to offer best-in-class service in the years ahead.”
Light Iron’s New York facility offers 20 editorial suites from its SoHo location, as well as in-house and mobile dailies services, HDR-ready episodic timing bays, and a 4K DI theater. The facility recently serviced Panavision’s first US-based feature shot on the new Millennium DXL camera.
“From being at the forefront of color science and workflow, to having an exceptional team of talent and technicians, to providing bi-coastal client support, this is a unique opportunity,” says Anthony of his appointment. “Working together with Panavision, I look forward to serving the dailies, editorial, and finishing needs of any production, be it feature, episodic or commercial.”
