MONTREAL — Rodeo FX (rodeofx.com) has acquired Rodeo Production, welcoming the company’s roster of photographers and directors into its fold. While the two organizations are aligning their creative and business objectives, they will continue to operate as distinct entities. Rodeo Production’s Montreal office will continue to manage photo and video production, as it has for more than 10 years, but will now also bring to the table all of Rodeo FX’s innovative post services and technical capabilities.
In addition to the coincidental sameness of their names, the two companies have much in common. They were founded in the same city, at about the same time, and are both driven by a culture of continuous creative evolution. In Toronto, Rodeo FX plans to open a Flame editing suite in Rodeo Production’s studio, and expand its Toronto roster of photographers and directors, with the goal of developing robust production and post production services for clients in the city’s advertising, television, and film industries.
“Our team is very excited by the opportunity to explore new creative horizons with Rodeo’s roster of award-winning photo and video artists,” says Sébastien Moreau, founder and president of Rodeo FX. “From an image-making perspective, our service offering is 100 percent comprehensive and incredibly cost-effective. From concepts, photography and production shoots, through our exhaustive post production gamut, all the way to final editing, the sky is the limit.”
“I have always worked hard to give our artists the best possible opportunities, and this partnership was the logical next step,” says Rodeo Production’s founder Alexandra Saulnier. “I see this as a fusion of pure creativity and innovative technology. It’s the kind of synergy that Montreal has become famous for; it’s in our DNA. This makes me very proud.”
