- NEW YORK
Bicoastal production company Honor Society has formed a strategic partnership with hybrid creative studio Caveat, offering clients an expanded combination of creative talent and resources in film and digital production. Honor Society and Caveat collectively represent a diverse mix of creative talent, including writers, designers, filmmakers, technologists and a cultural futurist. The partnered companies will serve clients nationally, with offices in New York, led by Honor Society managing partner/executive producer Megan Kelly and Los Angeles, led by Caveat managing director Joshua Greenberg.
The new partnership allows them to amplify their offerings, while continuing to individually offer high level creative work. Tapping Caveat’s extensive network of creative talent, Honor Society will now offer premium innovation and creative services, while Honor Society’s cinematic production expertise and requisite roster of directors furnishes Caveat with the filmmaking talents required by its growing list of clients.
Kelly noted, “An inventive approach to production has always been at the core of what we do and Caveat shares this perspective. They bring a fresh point of view on creative work and their innovation offering adds another dimension to our offering. Joshua and his team at Caveat are extremely creative, intelligent, innovative, and resourceful and I am excited for how this partnership will help evolve Honor Society.”
Greenberg added, “Caveat has valued and capitalized on our strong relationship with the production and postproduction communities since inception. The opportunity to formalize our relationship with Honor Society, and have access to their amazing roster of talent as well as seasoned leadership team, was a no-brainer. We’re really excited to bring this expanded offering to our clients. Personally, I’ve always been a huge fan of Megan and appreciated her commitment to nurturing a diverse mix of directors. We share this commitment, and I’m optimistic that our collective efforts will create an even bigger impact on the industry.”
Within the partnership, film directors Farhoud Meybodi and Howard Grandison, who had previously been represented by Greenberg, will be joining the Honor Society roster. Each bring a new dimension to the team, and continue with Kelly’s original mission to embrace directors oscillating between advertising and entertainment. Their addition further increases the number of Free the Work directors represented by the company to well over 50%.
Honor Society will also be welcoming back director Brennan Stasiewicz to the roster. Stasiewicz is a seasoned and accomplished creative director, as well as an awarded filmmaker.
Kelly launched Honor Society in 2015 as a bicoastal boutique integrated production company with a diverse roster of directors with an astute eye towards the convergence of entertainment and advertising. Since then, she has fortified the company to continue to expand the roster of talent to embrace directors working across ads and entertainment, including features that have appeared at festivals such as the Cannes Film Festival and Tribeca Film Festival, Netflix series and popular streaming series. Greenberg co-founded Caveat with former chief creative at Heat/Deloitte, Evan Slater, in January 2019. Prior to Caveat, Greenberg served as the executive producer of integrated at Tool of North America.
