Beast Expands Into Atlanta


Deluxe Entertainment Services Group’s editorial division Beast announced that it will launch a new Beast location in Atlanta, with creative talent hired from Jam Edit and RIOT. The new facility will be co-located with sister companies Company 3 and Method Studios.

“This is the perfect time for us to invest in the Atlanta/Southeast market,” said Stefan Sonnenfeld, president of Deluxe Creative Services Group and founder of Company 3. “We’ve seen a sustained advertising industry presence coupled with the growth of feature film and episodic TV. We are well positioned to provide the community a fantastic group of artists, operators, technicians, strategists, workflow theorists, etc. That’s proven to be a successful combination in the creative services business.”

Jam Edit founder and senior editor Eddie Kesler, editor Jeff Jay and executive producer Molly Baroco along with RIOT editors, Kyle Kramb and Matt Barron, will join the new facility. Collectively, the group has worked on commercial campaigns for Bud Light, Church’s Chicken, Delta Airlines, ESPN, Ford, Mitsubishi, New Era, Subway, Toyota and Verizon.

“We at Jam Edit are very excited to become part of the strong Beast Editorial family,” said Kesler. “We continue to provide high-quality creative editorial and gain robust resources and the latest technology, all with a global reach.”

According to Baroco, “Our commitment to the editorial craft and the values of a boutique post house are a perfect fit with Beast. I look forward to offering our clients the creative talents of our expanded roster and fantastic client services.”

Sound design and mixing services will continue to be provided to the commercial, broadcast TV and video game markets through Chris Basta, Matt Melberg and Erich Netherton.

“By co-locating Beast, Company 3 and Method in Atlanta, we offer end-to-end editorial, sound design and mixing, VFX, color grading and other finishing services to advertising, film and TV clients across the region,” said Suzanne Morris, VP of operations, Deluxe Creative Services Group, Atlanta. “Combining the artistry of our talent with the technical efficiency of seamless workflows and remote collaboration among artists at studios in New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Boston is our key differentiator.”

Deluxe is planning major renovations and upgrades in Atlanta in the first quarter of 2013.
