People on the Move
- SAN FRANCISCO
Veteran postproduction producer Vickie Sornsilp has been hired by San Francisco-based 1606 Studio, formerly MADE-SF, to serve as head of production. Sornsilp, whose background includes senior positions with One Union Recording and Beast Editorial, will oversee editorial and postproduction finishing projects for the studio, launched last month by executive producer Jon Ettinger, editor/director Doug Walker and editors Brian Lagerhausen and Connor McDonald.
Sornsilp brings deep experience in post for commercials and other advertising media, and has managed projects for all the major agencies in the Bay Area, and many others around the country.
A graduate of San Francisco’s Academy of Art University, Sornsilp began her career as a copywriter with agency DDB. She got her start in postproduction in 2014 with Beast Editorial, where she produced work for such brands as Amazon, Clorox, Doritos, HP, Round Table Pizza, MINI Cooper, Toyota, Visa, Walmart and Yahoo! She joined One Union Recording as executive producer in 2018.
Launched under the interim name MADE-SF, the company is rebranding as 1606 Studio in anticipation of moving into permanent facilities in April in San Francisco’s historic North Beach neighborhood. Currently undergoing a build-out, that site will feature five editorial suites, two motion graphics suites, and two postproduction finishing suites with room for further expansion. “We want to underscore that we are a San Francisco-centric company,” explained Walker. “Service companies from outside the area have been moving into the city to take advantage of the boom in advertising and media production. We want to make it clear that we’re already here and grounded in the community.”
Even as it awaits completion of its permanent headquarters, 1606 is busy with multiple projects for local advertising agencies and brands.
