Former GM of MPC, Mexico City, to lead outreach to global markets.
NEW YORK—TechnicolorPostWorks New York has appointed Scot Evans to the post of Executive Vice President of Business Development. Formerly Vice President/General Manager of MPC, Mexico City, Evans will direct sales, marketing and customer relations for the company throughout Latin America. He will seek to develop new business both among local feature film and television producers and among U.S. producers working in those markets.
“Film and television production is increasingly a global business,” said Technicolor PostWorks COO Rob DeMartin. “Production in countries such as Mexico, Colombia and Argentina is growing rapidly. Yet they lack access to the high-end services and specialized talent to support long-form post-production. We see that as an excellent opportunity.”
“Scot Evans is the perfect candidate to introduce Technicolor PostWorks to Latin America,” DeMartin added. “He has worked in the market for many years and enjoys strong relationships with studios, broadcasters and producers across the region. We are very excited to have him as a part of our team.”
Evans has founded and/or directed several post-production and visual effects facilities over the course of his career. In 2014, he oversaw the launch of Mexico City operations for London-based, VFX specialist MPC. Previously, he served as Vice President and Managing Director of Technicolor, Vancouver for four years. He was the CEO and founder of Global Images, Fiction Digital Imaging and New Art Digital, three Mexico City post-production facilities that served the Latin American advertising market. He also served as President of Virgin Television, Mexico, for three years.
In discussing his new role, Evans said that reliable access to high-speed connectivity and emerging collaboration technologies are transforming post-production into a global business. “Latin America has a very strong feature film and television industry, and we’re excited to introduce our unique workflows, technologies and most importantly our “A-list” post-production talent at Technicolor PostWorks. We want to work with producers across the region in a way that is not only creatively successful, but is also efficient and economical.”
