Post and vfx studio Electric Theatre Collective has hired Tiffani Manabat as md of its LA office.
Manabat started in live action commercial production fifteen years ago. She cut her teeth working for companies like Anonymous Content, VH1/MTV, HKM @Radical, and Motion Theory. While at Motion Theory, she made the move into the post and VFX side. She also previously served as Executive Producer at Caviar LA where she was responsible for revamping the company’s post production process from editorial through VFX finishing, while working closely with the directorial roster and Caviar’s client and creative teams.
From there, Manabat became the Vice President and EP of Television, Games, and VR for Digital Domain. During her time there, she worked on projects including the trailer for the bestselling video game Destiny; campaigns for The British Heart Foundation and Nike, and several epic spots for the UFC.
On her new role, Manabat said: “I’m looking at a market crowded with conglomerates who all approach problems the same way. The real truth is I couldn’t pass up this opportunity. Holistically, everyone at Electric is so talented. Sitting with production, technology, the leads of each department, the support teams—it’s a lethal bunch. They’re adaptable and they’re quick. They’re hyper-focused and hungry. Electric has the traits I covet, that I believe are still important. They have the finger on the pulse of what’s cool. And the accents help.”
