Arcade Edit has brought Nicole Visram on board as executive producer. She previously served in the same capacity for seven years at Cutters. Her experience spans TV, film, TV commercials and news media.
British-born Visram began her career as a producer with the BBC in London before moving to the U.S. to work in commercial production. It was the role of producer for The Three Tenors that traced her path to Los Angeles. Visram then chose to take a role with director Tony Kaye--who was working on American History X at the time--producing for his company TONY K, working on commercials for brands including IBM, Volvo and MasterCard.
She later became a sr. producer with Ogilvy & Mather in Los Angeles, producing spots for such clients as Motorola, IBM, Mattel and the Anaheim Angels baseball team.
Recently Visram was an associate producer on the short film entitled The Tsunami and the Cherry Blossom, directed by Lucy Walker and produced by Supply & Demand Integrated. Tsunami earned an Oscar nomination this year in the Documentary Short Subject category. The short was edited by Aki Mizutani, Visram's colleague at Cutters.
Some of Visram's other notable achievements include serving as a producer on the critically acclaimed documentary film, Earthlings, narrated by Joaquin Phoenix, as well as the 2001 film Bad Actors, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.
Visram was the creative lead and producer of Jared Leto's band 30 Seconds to Mars--a tribute to Japan's relief for the tsunami disaster.
