Post-Production Facility Expanding to Double Capacity; New Partnership Gives Company Financial and Marketing Support
PostWorks, New York co-founder Billy Baldwin has joined with new partners Robert E. DeMartin, Jr. and Tiffany Rosen. DeMartin and Rosen bring experience in the financial and film worlds, respectively, and the move signals a period of growth for the company with construction already underway that more than doubles the company’s post-production facilities and includes a second New York City location (“Unveiling Party” to be announced).
New partners Robert DeMartin and Tiffany Rosen join PostWorks as 50% owners in the company. DeMartin, who holds a degree in Business Management from the Eccles School of Business at the University of Utah, will serve as PostWorks’ chief financial officer and co-chief executive officer. DeMartin is also the co-owner and managing member of Sherman Management Group, and the owner and president of CDI, Inc. Both companies are based in Connecticut.
Tiffany Rosen will serve as PostWorks’ director of marketing/public relations, a new position in the company. A veteran of the film business, Rosen is a fellowship recipient from Columbia University’s Graduate Film School and worked in feature films as a production coordinator for nearly ten years before leaving to work in theatre as a marketing and public relations director. Rosen is a winner of the American Marketing Association’s Mark of Excellence Award for her marketing campaigns and is currently the co-owner and creative director for Sherman Management Group in Connecticut.
The new partnership gives PostWorks the financial mainstay to institute new growth. The company recently acquired a second facility in New York City where it will house additional editing suites, its rental division and a sound studio, as well as production office space for both long and short-form projects. The additional space more than doubles PostWorks’ capacity and allows PostWorks to expand its range of services. The all-new digital post production facilities now boast nine non-linear editing suites, three Symphony on-line editing suites, two digital audio studios, and over 25 mobile systems available for on-site installations. PostWorks regularly aides in the development of new technologies, acting as an alpha and beta test facility for major software and hardware developers in the post production industry.
“This is a very exciting time for the company,” says Baldwin. “We now have the management and resources in place to expand and pursue new technologies for our clients.”
“PostWorks has always been a unique facility,” adds DeMartin. “We are totally different from every other editorial house in the city. Our technology and equipment is cutting edge, and our engineers and technical support are unrivaled. We’re going to continue to build on that reputation. We can’t wait.”
DeMartin and Rosen replace co-founder Larry Blume who sold his share to become president of Tashmoo Productions.
