- Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2018
Partnership creates a dynamic production and creative collaborative
Created in 2014 by Director Luc Schurgers and EP Dominic Bernacchi, Pet Gorilla features a dynamic roster of live-action, documentary and animation directors with deep knowledge and experience in interactivity, design, live streaming, event planning and storytelling.
“Partnering with Optimus gives Pet Gorilla a significant foothold in the Midwest,” said Bernacchi. “In addition to ONE’s production roster, clients now will have access to Pet Gorilla’s extensive bench of directorial talent and broad range of non-traditional experience, all packaged with Optimus’s industry-leading post talent.”
“We are so excited to be teaming up with Pet Gorilla,” said Optimus National Director of Sales Tim Jacobs. “Under Dom’s leadership, Pet Gorilla has delivered versatile and creative solutions for national and international agencies and brands. Together, our combined talents offer a stronger, aligned ability to solve clients’ challenges – from traditional live action and tabletop, to social and experiential, plus animation and design.”
“Pet Gorilla’s reach and reputation on both coasts, and their progressive approach to production, makes this an attractive pairing for us,” said Optimus EP/Managing Director Brian Hrastar. “We have more to offer than ever before.”
