Virtual Post, has appointed Ben Churcher to the newly created role of head of post-production.
Churcher will oversee the management of all post projects and teams.
Churcher, who will report directly to Virtual Post founder and CEO Jon Lee, started his career as a trainee videographer at Barcroft Media. Over the next decade, he rose through the ranks to become the copany’s head of post-production. He has since held production manager and head of post-production roles at post house Green Rock and VR music event specialist Melody VR.
Jon Lee, founder and CEO of Virtual Post, said: “We believe that contemporary content management and post-production needs to reflect today’s fiercely competitive world of content creation — and to do that requires some reinvention. We are working to leverage the benefits of the cloud to complement traditional working methods, allowing us to offer unrivalled customisation, flexibility and service. Ben not only has in-depth knowledge of all aspects of content processing, but he also shares our vision of the future of post-production.”
Last June, the five year old company opened a new regional hub at Freedom Works in Brighton & Hove, adding to its facilities in London and Orpington. It now employs 13 full-time staff, six of whom are based in Brighton & Hove and the rest in London and remotely.
Churcher said: ‘I have long shared Virtual Post’s vision for the future of post-production – the company has been at the forefront of a new wave of facilities that aim to utilise new technology to help producers realise their goals. From my background in managing post production departments both in house at agencies and in facility I will be helping the company continue to realise their ambitions in the future.
