Sybil McCarthy has joined Venice, Calif.-based VFX studio Brewster Parsons as executive producer in charge of business development.
McCarthy began her career in Boston as a producer working with agencies Hill Holliday, then Arnold, where she rose to the position of senior producer. After joining TBWA\Chiat\Day Los Angeles, she spent 10 years overseeing production on major campaigns for Infiniti, Nissan, Pepsi and Sony. Departing the agency staff role in 2006 to 2012, McCarthy held executive producer positions with both Jigsaw Edit and Beast in L.A., two of the country’s top editorial facilities, and between those posts, she also joined the Poolhouse agency producers group and stayed busy with freelance assignments.
“Based on her incredible background on both the agency and vendor sides, Sybil intuitively understands how to deliver on the most demanding creative expectations,” company founder and executive producer Darcy Parsons said. “On top of that, she is an amazing human being that everyone likes to be around. She is incredibly bright and articulate, and time has shown that we work very well together. We are super pleased to have her.”
“I was attracted to Brewster Parsons because of the high level of creativity and dedication I saw in the artists here,” McCarthy said. “Brewster Parsons has a cadre of Flame, CG and graphic artists who have ‘graduated’ from major post and VFX houses. Every day, they are looking to further enhance the creative vision of the directors, agency and client executives and other professionals they engage with. Brewster Parsons is also a WBENC woman-owned business that has grown enormously in seven years.”
