“The addition of Zoe and Dan is an important step in the continued expansion of PRG’s services and reach,” said Brian Edwards, CEO, television and general manager of PRG. “Both Zoe and Dan bring a strong personal relationships among key creatives in the motion picture business, and deep insight into their needs and working methods.”

Her resume also includes stints as account executive for companies like Panavision and Eastman Kodak, as well as serving as studio manager for Chapman Cranes and Dollies in Orlando, Florida. She is also an associate member of the American Society of Cinematographers.
Prior to joining PRG, Hammond worked for Cineverse/VER, connecting filmmakers with resources to facilitate a wide range of productions. Previously, he was director of cinema technical services at Doremi Labs, where he was responsible for directing a global team providing technical support and training programs to digital cinema exhibition companies and postproduction facilities. That role followed a 19-year tenure at Panavision in a variety of roles. Hammond was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Columbia College in 1996 and holds memberships in the International 3D Society, Academy of Television Arts and Sciences and the Association of Independent Commercial Producers.
“There’s so much innovation being driven by PRG’s worldwide operations, and our job will be to put that technology into the hands of today’s filmmakers as they create their stories,” said Hammond.
“In our business, it takes a team of creative and technical professionals working together to make a film,” said Borys. “That’s what I find most compelling about PRG – the team here understands the collaborative creative process, and how to support that process with precision and efficiency.”
