SGO has appointed Sam Sheppard as a Mistika product application specialist. Sam will work closely with the development team and play a key pre-sales specialist role, where he will present SGO’s Mistika workflow technologies, with particular emphasis on DI, 2D and stereo 3D functionality.
Sam joins SGO from Quantel where he was senior postproduction application specialist. His role involved demonstrating postproduction products to prospective customers, assisting established clients with projects, providing development feedback to R&D, and delivering high-end training. Prior to that, Sam has also worked within the New Zealand film industry, first on set in lighting and camera departments, then moving into post at Park Road Post Production.
“I am delighted to be joining SGO at such an exciting time in the industry. I have had the opportunity of working with many systems in my career and SGO’s Mistika is by far the most impressive finishing system that I’ve seen to date, with it’s open architecture and collaborative workflows,” said Sheppard.
“SGO is totally committed to delivering the best products and services in the industry, which includes having the highest calibre team members,” said director of SGO global sales and operations, Geoff Mills. “Sam will be an asset to the team and brings with him valuable experience and knowledge, along with a fantastic reputation for customer relationships.”
