Production/post company Odd Machine has hired executive producer Lisa Burke to helm its operations in Chicago and Los Angeles. She spent the past year freelancing and prior to that served as head of production at mcgarrybowen. Earlier she was EP for JWT and a sr. freelance producer throughout Chicago.
During her career, Burke has worked with assorted brands including Disney, Miracle Whip, Nestle, McDonald’s, Bud Light, Sears and Pizza Hut.
Odd Machine opened their second Chicago location earlier this year. The new location has allowed the company to expand both its production studio as well as postproduction services which now include three editorial suites, color correction, 2D and 3D graphics and the addition of audio and mix, provided by a partnership with Soundcake audio.
Burke joins fellow producers Elizabeth Collins of the L.A. office and Alec Pinkston who oversees the company’s west side Chicago studio and animation department. Recent work includes pieces with Fenton in San Francisco, Grey NY and Upworthy plus a collaboration with Nick Offerman on the Jeff Tweedy “Low Key” music video.
Editor Chris Shegich, Odd Machine co-founder, said, “Our brand and culture are pretty unique, a little different from other companies, and Lisa fits right in. We’re looking forward to her spearheading business development and overseeing clients.”
