Vagabond has started 2017 off with an expansive spirit, promoting Pablo Tourrenc to senior producer. Based in Bogota, Colombia, Tourrenc will now oversee bidding and productions for some of the projects shooting in Latin America.
”For this new year, our mission with Vagabond remains the same since the creation of the company,” said partner/executive producer Gabriel Carratu. ”To provide the best production service and commitment to our clients. One of the great advantages and added value of Vagabond is that our clients can count on a personalized service in each and every project that we produce. We believe Pablos great experience as an international producer and his positive attitude towards any new challenge combined with his fresh ideas, will bring a renewed energy to the company.”
Pablo was invited to join Vagabond as the producer for Colombia based in Bogota and to develop new territories such as the Dominican Republic and Cuba, notes Vagabonds founder/managing director Lorenzo Benedick, who is based in New York. Thanks to Pablos enthusiasm, work ethics and international experience, he has now been promoted to senior producer for Latin America, taking care of the bidding process, the production on the ground, through the wrap.
