Santa Monica, CA, October 13, 2006 - Currently celebrating its 10 year anniversary, Wow and Flutter West, one of the most respected and award winning original music, sound design and audio post production companies in Los Angeles, has named Ryan Rees as Corporate Vice President of its Wow and Flutter Post operating unit. Jerry Brunskill, founder, Wow and Flutter West, made the announcement.
In his new post, Rees will be responsible for implementing and overseeing the creative “vision” of Wow and Flutter Post, and also managing the company‘s multi-service front for its clientele.
Brunskill said, “Ryan reminds me of myself when I was in my 20‘s. His work ethic and willingness to do ‘whatever it takes‘ to make it happen is what sets him apart. Call me a narcissist ...maybe that‘s why I have so much confidence in him! He is a young professional with a broad range of skills, including work as a composer, front of house engineer, re-recording mixer, audio supervisor, album engineer, musician, and director/producer of music videos. He will help us extend our industry outreach, especially to young filmmakers and creatives.”
Rees adds, “Audio post is a tough business. At Wow and Flutter, we‘re about the people and service--if it‘s not fun, then we must be doing something wrong. I‘m really excited, this is an incredible opportunity for me.”
