NY-based VFX and production shop Light of Day has hired Jen Milano as executive producer. Coming to Light of Day from Fluid NY, Milano will leverage experience as a post producer and a background of hands-on experience as an editor and artist. She has worked with such clients as NY Lotto, Travelocity, GameStop, Ford, Pier 1 and Fiat, among others. Her technical stills encompass an understanding of the postproduction process, including a working knowledge of Avid, Autodesk and Final Cut.
“I am really excited to come on board with Light of Day. They have such a great foundation, and I look forward to utilizing my skillset and presence to build upon that and help grow the company,” said Milano.
A graduate from Penn State University in telecommunications, New Jersey-native Milano gleaned an interest in the creative aspects of postproduction while taking an editing course. Journeying back north after school, she landed her first professional gig as a postproduction coordinator at NYC’s IMG Media, taking several different positions in the postproduction realm before moving to Dallas, Texas. She spent four years at 3008 Dallas, working as an artist, editor and producer, coordinating creative teams and working directly with clients. Eager to be closer to family, she made the move back to NYC in 2013, working as a post producer at Fluid, before joining Light of Day.
