Light Iron co-founder Katie Fellion sees her role evolving and will now serve as senior vice president, business development and post production strategy. She has been with the company since it began operations in 2009 and was instrumental in establishing Light Iron’s Outpost mobile dailies systems. In her time with Light Iron, Fellion has also produced several firsts in file-based finishing, including the first 6K DI, the first studio feature cut on Final Cut Pro X and Amazon’s first HDR series. In her new role, she will be responsible for global sales and business development, new market strategies and strategic alignment with Panavision so clients can maximize the value proposition of the companies’ shared production-to-post offerings.
Megan Marquis has been promoted to vice president of operations for Light Iron Los Angeles. Marquis joined Light Iron in 2013 as a senior producer at the company’s New York location, where she handled budgeting and oversaw projects from dailies through final delivery. After Light Iron’s acquisition by Panavision, she began to integrate resources between the two companies, assisting cinematographers in camera tests and joining conversations about production choices to smoothly translate decisions to the post side. With her latest promotion, Marquis is responsible for managing the overall operations of Light Iron’s two facilities in Los Angeles.
Eric Camp joins the company as director of operations for Light Iron New York. He brings more than 20 years of experience developing file-based workflows, best practices and future roadmaps for digital motion imaging, and has held crew positions on 15 features and over 250 television episodes. He will oversee all of the New York facility’s operations, including the location’s on-site and remote offline editorial rental offerings.

Ken Lebre has joined Light Iron as director of dailies, bringing extensive experience in streamlining workflows with creative and technical talent. Through his background with boutique shops and larger post facilities — where he’s held positions that include director of operations, senior director of client services and general manager — he’s become an expert in dailies workflows while simultaneously interfacing with studios and production companies. At Light Iron, he will now oversee the company’s global dailies operations.
“The additions to our leadership team are a great example of Light Iron’s evolution, continual growth and unwavering commitment to providing the most innovative solutions to help our clients realize their creative goals,” says managing director Seth Hallen. “From the company’s origins as a startup, we now offer a robust infrastructure and the resources to service projects around the globe. What hasn’t changed is our culture of collaboration, our deep commitment to artist development or our ability to remain flexible with the needs of every client. This leadership team further bolsters Light Iron’s infrastructure while continuing to grow the collaborative, innovative and nimble atmosphere that the company is known for.”
In addition to Light Iron’s New York and Los Angeles facilities, each of which offers the full breadth of creative finishing services, the company also has locations in Atlanta, Albuquerque, Chicago, New Orleans, Toronto and Vancouver.
