Colorist Laura Jans-Fazio Joins Encore HollywoodCommercial, music video specialist returns to Hollywood (October 27, 2004)
Continuing to strengthen its team of short-form post production artists, Encore Hollywood has hired colorist Laura Jans-Fazio. The move marks Jans-Fazio’s return to Hollywood, where she first established herself as a premiere colorist in the commercial and music video market.
Encore Hollywood has been steadily building its short-form talent pool over the past year and has helped to reestablish Hollywood as a center for commercial and music video post, according to Bill Romeo, Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing for Ascent Media Creative Services. “Our belief that there was a strong, unmet demand for high quality post production services in Hollywood has proven to be correct,” Romeo said. “The clients were there, but the talent and resources were lacking. We have resolved that imbalance by bringing some of the industry’s best talent to Encore Hollywood, and they have succeeded beyond our expectations.”
“We are thrilled to welcome Laura Jans-Fazio to our team,” Romeo added. “She is a tremendous talent and has a great reputation in the commercial and music video industries. She will continue to flourish in the environment we have created at Encore.”
Jans-Fazio has spent the past six years on staff at Company 3, Santa Monica, where she worked on a broad cross section of national commercial and music video accounts. Her latest credits included spots for Nike, Mini Cooper, Gold’s Gym and Nissan Sentra. Previously, she spent seven years on staff at 525 Post Production, in Hollywood. Her work there included many classic music video clips including Sugar Ray, Smashmouth, Wyclef Jean and The Straycats.
“My roots are in Hollywood and some of my best clients are based there, and so I am very excited to be back in Hollywood as part of the Encore team,” she said.
Born in Kalamazoo, Michigan and raised in New York City, Jans-Fazio began her career with PBS station WNYC. She became a colorist at Duart Video, worked at NVI and Post Perfect, where she facilitated clients such as MTV, Nickelodeon and HBO. In 1992, she relocated to Los Angeles, California.
