Deluxe Creative Services CEO Stefan Sonnenfeld announced the promotion of Morgan Strauss to managing director of Encore, and Stephanie Rezentes as managing director of Level 3 Post. The promotions are part of an ongoing initiative to streamline operations across companies under the Deluxe Creative Services umbrella including Beast, Company 3, EFILM, Encore, Level 3 Post and Method Studios.
Strauss has been with Encore since 2001, most recently serving as senior vice president for operations, where he oversaw workflow design and IT in addition to business development and strategy. Working in Encore’s Hollywood facility, Strauss will be the point person for all of Encore’s locations across North America and Europe. With a wealth of hands-on experience in episodic TV, having managed projects like Deadwood and Curb Your Enthusiasm for Encore, Strauss will focus on promoting 4K postproduction and VFX for TV, commercials and features.
Rezentes, a nine-year veteran at Level 3 Post, has served as post production coordinator, operations manager, and most recently director of production. Rezentes will be based in Level 3’s studio in Burbank and will be in regular contact with Strauss and the larger Deluxe Creative Services network.
“Morgan and Stephanie each represent the dedication and ingenuity that are hallmarks of Deluxe,” said Sonnenfeld. “Encore and Level 3 will be in very capable hands with these talented leaders at the helm.”
