Preymaker expands production team, adds Zachary Fortin, Bridgette Doran
People on the Move
- NEW YORK
Creative and technology studio Preymaker has added Zachary Fortin in production and Bridgette Doran in operations. Utilizing an advanced custom cloud-based platform, Preymaker is one of the first 100% cloud native creative studios that creates content entirely in the cloud. Fortin will focus on Preymaker’s clients and running projects, while Doran will be responsible for resourcing and talent management.
Fortin, who worked most recently as a VFX producer at The Mill and prior to that at Imaginary Forces, said the decision to join Preymaker came down largely to his respect for the people there. The entirely cloud-based pipeline and extensive capabilities that go beyond traditional visual effects were also a draw. Fortin said, “I think it’s evident that the technology landscape is converging the games industry, the VFX industry and the immersive industry. With the way Preymaker has established its infrastructure which makes us limitless in terms of scalability, and with the talent we are seeking, I think it’s pretty safe to say you will see some genre-bending projects.”
Doran brings a holistic production industry background to Preymaker, having worked previously in the entertainment industry at Viacom and Marvel Entertainment on everything from large-scale, live tentpole events to episodic and digital content. Joining Preymaker, Doran said, was an opportunity to be hands-on creating something new. “There are no hoops to jump through or red tape to cut back,” she said. “If you have an idea then you are free to voice it and empowered to action it. I’ve learned so much in the short time I’ve been with Preymaker; it’s a real testament to just how innovative the work is this team is doing.”
“Zach and Bridgette excel at logistics, multi-tasking and creative collaboration, and they keep their cool with the challenges that can arise on a job or operationally. Their respective expertise and support will make it possible for our team to do the best creative work possible,” said Verity Grantham, who serves as executive producer at Preymaker along with Melanie Wickham. Chief creative at Preymaker is Angus Kneale.
