Tribe Pictures says it delivers “human-first, story-based films and videos” to its clientele of ad agency and corporate video deficient companies. They must have found more need across the Hudson, as the Chatham, New Jersey-based company has now opened Manhattan-based offices.
Heading up operations is Michael Chomet, who comes in as Senior Vice President and Created Director, previously worked at Spark Productions. There he was Executive Producer and Created Director, according to Vern Oakley, CEO and founder of Tribe Pictures.
Chomet had previously worked with Oakley on a number of different fundraising videos and broadcast ads. He joined Spark in 2010 via a merger between that company and his own studio, Chomet Creative Group Inc.
Chomet brings to Tribe decades of experience working across media platforms, with credits in broadcast and cable television, music videos, corporate videos and advertising. He’s collaborated on a variety of high profile projects, including “Heartless,” Kanye West’s breakthrough animated video, as well as series and specials for MTV, Lifetime, Bravo, Martha Stewart Living/CBS, HBO, PBS and Noggin.
Oakley called Chomet a “brilliant editor who understood the value of compelling, emotional, authentic storytelling.”
Chomet graduated from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, majoring in film and video. He won an Emmy award in 2005 and has been nominated for other times for his work.
