LOS ANGELES — Creative post boutique Uppercut (uppercutedit.com) recently welcomed Mila Davis as executive producer. She joins their expanding team in Los Angeles, where the company opened an office last year.
Davis began her entertainment career at TBWA\Chiat\Day, working her way up from an entry-level position to become a producer. She left Chiat to go work on Lexus at Team One Advertising, and shortly after, was given the opportunity to return to Chiat to work on PlayStation and Apple accounts. She worked there for many years as an executive producer on projects for Pepsi and Adidas, among others.
Davis has always been interested in the post production process, which led her to become an executive producer/managing director at Stitch Editing. She's collaborated with clients such as Amazon, EA, Activision, Facebook, Google, Cuervo, Honda, Hyundai, Nike, Microsoft and Samsung. She also enjoys working on long-form documentary projects.
Having spent much of her childhood in Los Angeles, Davis is enthusiastic about the opportunity to further grow Uppercut's new studio home in Culver City. In her new role, she will guide and support Uppercut's roster of editors, clients and collaborators.
"Uppercut and (owner/editor) Micah Scarpelli are different from most of the post houses,” she states. “I love that all the offices support one another as one company. I look forward to building the Los Angeles office and strengthening the Uppercut brand."
