He will report to Jeffrey Eisner, Senior Vice President, Feature Film and Television Business Development.
“Having worked with us as a long-time client of CSS Studios, we have come to develop a deep respect and appreciation for Frank’s integrity and his thorough understanding of the post production process,” says Eisner. “Frank’s experience will enhance our ability to respond to evolving workflow requirements in a smarter, more comprehensive way. We are excited to have Frank join our group and we look forward to him continuing to offer his valuable expertise to our community of filmmakers.”
