Chicago-based production company One at Optimus announced that it has hired Jonah Mueller as senior producer. Mueller has been freelancing for ONE as a line producer and bidder for the past year.
“Jonah and I have worked together in previous positions for over a decade, and he consistently has impressed me with his ability to work with directors both on a project level and on the bigger picture,” said One at Optimus EP/managing director Lisa Masseur. “Jonah is an excellent problem-solver, and works with the entire project in mind.”
After a series of ad agency internships, Mueller cut his teeth as an assistant account executive at Laughlin Constable in Chicago. From there, he went to Radar Studios as a PA and worked his way up as a producer under a team that included Masseur.
Mueller has worked with brands including The Chicago Bulls, Crystal Light, Fifth Third Bank, Johnsonville, McDonald’s, Motorola, Nintendo, Perkins Restaurants and Samsung. Besides producing commercials and content, Jonah produced a feature documentary, Sign Painters, as well as music videos. He has shot around the U.S. and internationally in Canada, France, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Russia and Lebanon.
