Four K Productions has been launched in Los Angeles as a new production company specializing in the development, production and distribution of original 4K broadcast content. The company has secured initial financial backers and has already completed its first production, MIX: LA. The new company also has a slate of original programs currently in development.
Company founder/president Kevin Williamson also announced that longtime entertainment industry marketing and advertising executives Dean Blagg and Martin Gueulette will serve Four K Productions as creative consultants. Blagg and Gueulette are experienced with movie trailers, TV promos, motion graphics, print advertising and cross-platform marketing campaigns, having worked with numerous motion picture studios and television networks for nearly three decades.
Four K Productions is also working with Wayne Threatt, a strategic advisor and investment professional with extensive financing experience in institutional private equity and venture capital. Threatt is also a digital image processing industry veteran, who has fashioned numerous strategic partnerships in the U.S., Europe and Asia.
“We have nailed down the 4K workflow, and we consider ourselves adept in the creation and production of original 4K content,” Williamson said. “We are committed to this new and emerging technology, and realize that we are among very few competitors who really understand how this format works. In addition to producing our own content, we are also seeking to co-produce programming with partners, and we are also open to financing interesting new 4K projects that are pitched to us from the outside.”
Through its association with Blagg’s company TAO Post Studios, Four K Productions has access to full-service 4K postproduction technology and services. These include audio and video editorial, DaVinci Resolve color correction, 5.1 surround sound mixing, 4K mastering, and 3D motion graphics.
