HARD WORK AND COMPETITION
We’ve often heard about climbing the corporate ladder, and in the post
industry a great example of a person who’s achieved success through
hard work is Bionic’s new managing director, Megan Sweeten. Sweeten got
her start at Creative Bubble — initially serving as its receptionist —
eight years ago, and over time and through much hard work, became the
New York post house’s managing director.
Recently, she pulled a lateral move to competing facility Bionic, and
knowing her Massachusetts roots and allegiance to the Boston Red Sox,
she says some might see her as “a Johnny Damon.” But, like the Yankee
outfielder’s situation, it was “all about business.”
Bionic and Creative Bubble are essentially direct competitors, she
notes, with broadcast and cable promos, along with spots, making up
much of their work. Bionic is home to seven Avid Adrenaline and
Symphony suites, three Digidesign Pro Tools rooms, and four Adobe After
Effect stations, two equipped with Autodesk Maya for 3D work.
