Technicolor has launched Technicolor Creative Studios, forming a collaborative global structure to drive innovation and creativity across its family of studios. As the company’s flagship division, it will focus on the transformation of the entertainment, experiential, and advertising industries. Technicolor Creative Studios’ new proposition – Beyond Imagination – comes from a desire to spark unparalleled creativity, pushing the boundaries of the imagination to bring groundbreaking and unforgettable ideas to life.
The studio network includes The Mill, MPC (film, episodic & advertising), Mikros Animation and Mr. X. Each studio retains its own unique identity and market position, continuing to provide world-class services to clients and partners across many industry categories.
The company says the combined strength of Technicolor Creative Studios harnesses the collective experience and discoveries of each member of the studio family, expanding artistic capabilities and propelling the possibilities to greater heights, from VFX, XR and animation to design, direction, and production.
There is a shared hunger and ambition between studio talent and their clients to push capabilities and technology to the limit, creating new, never-before-seen experiences that audiences will never forget. The division’s creative legacy, reputation for excellence, and drive for innovation allow clients and partners the confidence to think freely, without the constraints of technical possibilities, and inspire them to produce their most iconic work.
The newly organized division has a new leadership team led by Christian Roberton, president of Technicolor Creative Studios, who reports to Technicolor CEO Richard Moat and has been a key senior management team member supporting Technicolor’s broad reorganization. Roberton’s team includes:
David Patton, President of Customer Experience & Advertising
Andrea Miloro, President of Mikros Animation
Tom Williams – Global Managing Director, MPC Episodic
Laura Fitzpatrick, Global Managing Director, Mr. X
Philip Greenlow, Global Managing Director of MPC Film
Mark Benson, CEO of MPC Advertising
Josh Mandel, CEO of The Mill
“By working together to share best practices and discoveries, Technicolor Creative Studios will push the boundaries of creativity and innovation more than ever before and make possible the realization of ambitious and extraordinary ideas,” said Roberton. “The formation of Technicolor Creative Studios is the result of a series of transformation initiatives begun over a year ago designed to facilitate collaboration, integrate technology, enable increased artistry and unleash top talent. These steps have proven to be incredibly effective as they’ve maintained the top quality of content produced despite the challenges of COVID-19. We are better positioned than ever to further invest in new technology platforms, facilitate a broader creative offering and meet the changing needs of our clients, partners and collaborators.”
“Christian is a recognized visionary in the VFX community and uniquely qualified to implement the vision for Technicolor Creative Studios and our global artist community,” said Moat. “We have assembled a world-class management team to support the group’s ambitious roadmap. Technicolor Creative Studios and our Beyond Imagination message are based on the simple idea that absolutely anything is possible. No idea is too complicated for us to produce to an incredibly high standard, and everyone at Technicolor Creative Studios embraces this belief.”
