, a full-service film and high-definition post facility, has announced its merger with
, an international provider of mobile post-production equipment and services to the feature film and television industries. The announcement was made by PostWorks’ CEO David Rosen and PostWorks’ COO Rob DeMartin, and by Orbit Digital’s Managing Partner Alastair Binks, who has been appointed to the role of President for PostWorks, effective immediately.
For Orbit Digital, which becomes a wholly-owned subsidiary of PostWorks, New York, the company’s principals and staff members will continue to operate Orbit’s existing facilities in Los Angeles, London and New York, while all existing PostWorks facilities will also remain in their present locations. Along with Alastair Binks, all of Orbit’s key partners including Pete Conlin, Jonathan Hoffman,
Eric Zeller, Chad Andrews and David Felts, will join the management team of PostWorks. Each company will continue to focus on developing their existing businesses while benefiting from the merger’s combined resources.
Binks commented on specific trends that make the union of Orbit with PostWorks especially practical. “We continue to see new opportunities for mobile services in both production and editorial locations that will enable a seamless transition back to the facility environment. The ability to manage data from capture to final delivery in a series of locations is an exciting opportunity that our clients have already identified as a critical path for the future of filmmaking.”
