Production company tinygiant has promoted producer Ella Nuortila to the role of executive producer.
Nuortila is excited about her expanded role as EP, and for the future of Brooklyn-based tinygiant, saying, “We are able to stay competitive because we are not a huge machine, but a nimble, small company capable of handling all sized jobs. tinygiant is all about being current and adaptable in the 2017 media landscape, while still being able to meet the old-school expectations.”
Company founder Veronica Diaferia added, “Nothing makes me more proud than being able to nurture talent. Having someone like Ella become executive producer adds priceless value to the company. She has been with us since day one. This is someone who knows the directors, someone whose work ethics perfectly match with mine, so there is no adjusting, no training, only hitting the ground running and growing the company.”
After graduating in her native Finland, Nuortila moved to New York to work for SALTY Features, a critically acclaimed documentary production company. She was promoted from production assistant to co-producer in a short amount of time. During her tenure with SALTY Features, the company won an Oscar and had a film at Sundance. While there, she co-produced the feature documentary (Dis)Honesty - The Truth About Lies, as well as music videos and numerous short films, including the award-winning short Six, and feature-length films, like one of China’s biggest action films, MOJIN: The Lost Legend.
