PMG acquires OC Production Company(October 13, 2005)
Post Modern Group, one of Orange Countys largest post-production facilities, has acquired Magellan Media, a Costa Mesa-based television and commercial production company.
The acquisition is being hailed by company leaders as a win-win for Magellan Media, Post Modern and its clients.
?We have had our eye on the award-winning talent at Magellan Media for quite some time, said Mike Pearce, director of creative services at Post Modern Group. ?The decision to acquire Magellan Media was a strategic and important move carefully executed to support Post Modern Group in achieving its vision of establishing a production powerhouse equipped to serve a range of clients from corporations to advertising agencies in Orange County and throughout Southern California.
Magellan Media and its founder Greg Jacobs bring a stellar track-record to the Post Modern Group. During the past decade and a half, Magellan Media and Jacobs have produced award-winning projects from 30-second national commercials for national advertising agencies to corporate programming for Fortune 500 companies, as well as movie trailers and television shows for major studios and home entertainment networks.
Magellan Media and Jacobs will join Post Modern Creative, a division of Post Modern Group that includes a team of award-winning editors, producers, animators, graphic designers and composers. Along with Pearce, Jacobs will be working closely with Post Moderns customer service team members, Kelli Clark and Kelli Alvarado. Post Modern Group also consists of Post Modern Edit, Post Modern Digital, and Post Modern Broadcast Studios.
Jacobs, a 16-year veteran of television syndication and production, will serve as an executive producer in the Post Modern Creative division supervising broadcast production. Jacobs brings an impressive career of experience working with top national companies including Dodge, Nissan, Taylor Woodrow Homes, Wahoos Fish Taco, Mercedes Benz, Verizon Wireless, Coors Brewing Company and IBM.
In addition to the brain-power of Magellan Medias top talent, Post Modern Group will expand its equipment capabilities. Post Modern Group has also purchased Magellan Medias technology and commercial production equipment which includes a broad range of cameras, lighting and audio equipment, as well as one of only a couple five-ton grip and electric trucks in the Orange County area.
?The impressive array of services at Post Modern Group, combined with its desire to expand its broadcast production, posed the ideal opportunity for our two companies to come together, said Jacobs. ?Our clients now have access to a 21,000 square-foot facility, new services, and an expanded team of professionals to serve them. Its truly a win-win situation for Magellan Media, Post Modern Group and?most importantly?our clients.
