Former The Mews facility manager Frankie Jacobs has joined Shoreditch-based Air Post Production as its new head of post-production.
In her new role she will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the department and for seeking out new opportunities in graphics, design and effects work.
Jacobs has previously worked for Evolutions and DGP, the company that was bought and merged with Rainbow Post to become The Mews.
Jacobs said: “Shoreditch is a real hub of creativity and because of this I’m looking forward to working with a much broader range of clients than I perhaps might have done in the West End.
“Air really have been involved in a myriad of projects. As well as the normal high-end documentaries and dramas, they’ve created complete sound designed environments for art installations, worked on a couple of feature films, alongside work on high end commercials.”
Jacobs will work alongside Clare Manning who recently joined from Unit in the position of post-production manager.
Air Post Production is the post division of the Air Lyndhurst Group which includes amongst its other divisions, the recording facilities Air Studios in Hampstead and Strongroom in Shoreditch.
It moved to a new facility on Singer Street, East London in July 2009.
