NEW YORK CITY — Creative post production shop Uppercut has added Kathrin Lausch as executive producer. She brings over two decades of experience as an executive producer for production and post companies that include MPC, Ntropic, B-Reel, Nice Shoes, Partizan and Compass Films, among others.
“The hierarchy of the industry is changing, which calls for adoption and change but also opens the door to a whole new world of opportunity,” says Lausch. “Uppercut not only has a great boutique sensibility and team of talented visual storytellers, but they are also in the nimble stage of their growth, which allows them to be able to lean in to these opportunities and embrace the change. I’m excited to join the team!”
“Kathrin has an impressive, 360-degree background in advertising and entertainment, and her excitement toward industry shifts truly aligns with our approach,” adds Uppercut owner/editor Micah Scarpelli. “With her on board, we’re looking forward to embracing change, not work against it, and dive into new opportunities.”
Lausch launched Passport Films, which later became Compass Films, in 1994 to usher European talent into the US market. After selling the company, she followed the onset of the digital advertising marketplace, landing with B-Reel, where she worked on a wide-range of branded projects. She made the shift to post production as executive producer at Nice Shoes and Ntropic before landing as head of new business at MPC.
