Digital Arts NY, the award-winning post production facility, has added several former Nutmeg Creative talent and production staff members to its roster — Senior Producer Lauren Boyle; Sound Designer/Mixers Brian Beatrice and Frank Verderosa; Colorist Gary Scarpulla; Finishing Editor/Technical Engineer Mark Spano; and Director of Production Brian Donnelly.
“I am excited to bring on this experienced group with such a vibrant team culture, to the Digital Arts family, and to our clients,” Digital Arts Owner/CEO Axel Ericson says.
Boyle adds, “We’ve brought the best of Nutmeg to Digital Arts so that we can extend the best of Digital Arts to both our production and post-production clients.”
As part of this expansion, Digital Arts will unveil additional infrastructure featuring an ADR stage/mix room. The current facility boasts several state-of-the-art audio suites, their historic first-ever 4K finishing theater/mixing dubstage on the East Coast, four color/finishing suites and expansive editorial and production space, which is spread over four floors.
“I’m thrilled that both clients and talent feel at home the moment they walk through our doors,” adds Verderosa.
New Work, New Services
The former Nutmeg team has hit the ground running servicing their long-time ad agency, network, animation and film studio clients. Gary Scarpulla worked on color for HBO’s VEEP and Los Espookys; while Frank Verderosa has been working with agency Ogilvy on several IKEA campaigns; and Brian Beatrice mixed spots for Tom Ford’s prestigious cosmetics line.
In addition, Digital Arts’ in-house theater/mixing stage has proven to be a valuable resource for some of the most popular TV productions including recording recent commentary sessions for the legendary HBO series, Game of Thrones and the final season of VEEP.
Especially noteworthy is Digital Arts’ Owner/Colorist Axel Ericson and Finishing Editor Mark Spano collaboration with Oscar winning directors Karim Amer and Jehane Noujaim bringing to fruition their forthcoming Netflix documentary The Great Hack.
Digital Arts also recently expanded its offerings to include production services. The company has already delivered projects for agencies Area 23, FCB Health and TCA.
“Digital Arts’ existing infrastructure was ideally suited to leverage itself into end-to-end production,” Donnelly says. “Now we can deliver from shoot to post.”
