Beast hit a home run this week with the addition of two highly esteemed industry professionals: Helena Lee as Executive Producer, Beast, New York and Lisa Houck, as West Coast Outside Sales Representative. Both Lee and Houck bring with them vast professional networks within the post-production industry. Their expertise perfectly suits Beast’s position as the editorial component of Deluxe’s award-winning global Creative Services Group, which also includes Company 3, which specializes in feature and commercial post, and Method Studios, which does the same in the visual effects arena.
Helena Lee brings an impeccable reputation to her new role. “Helena has shown throughout her career that she does understand what good solid creative work is,” enthuses Jon Ettinger, Executive Producer at Beast, San Francisco. “And she has also shown the ability to go out and get that work.” Lee honed her skills at premier post-production houses Red Car and Rock Paper Scissors and previously worked as a freelance producer for top-tier creative agency Berlin Cameron, TBWA Chiat Day and Crispin Porter + Bogusky. Lee engenders the confidence of her editorial staff and truly refines valuable relationships.
Talent representative Lisa Houck, Founder and President of Salon, will work out of Beast’s LA offices as West Coast Outside Sales Representative covering the Los Angeles, Austin and San Francisco regions. Her production skills were polished in the development of Method Studios’Method Labs as she led the acclaimed visual effects group. Houck worked with a huge roster of top-level clients and her commitment to cultivating innovative talent is tenacious. “Lisa is a great addition to our company because she represents diverse and creative talent,” Ettinger notes. “And she has a long-standing relationship with top players in our industry.”
Lee is delighted to be part of the Beast community, noting, “I’ve worked with many of the talented people at Beast and I have wanted to be a more integral part of that team.”
