Digital Vision appoints new head of sales for Asia Pacific
Digital Vision has appointed Brian Beard to the role of head of sales, Asia Pacific, effective immediately. He will be responsible for expanding Digital Visions’ distribution network and developing sales opportunities in the region.
Beard joins Digital Vision from Runway Inc., a leading rental house where his role as Workflow Specialist included developing the company’s Dailies and DI pipelines in 2D and 3D, as well as building custom colour/conform suites and workflows for TV and feature film projects. Prior to that Beard was head of the editorial department at iO Film, a provider of leading-edge post production services, where he was instrumental in the Post Group’s transition from tape to file-based workflows for their TV pipeline. In addition, Beard is credited on over 40 feature films as digital intermediate editor, and also has worked in visual effects and editorial departments.
Kelvin Bolah, managing director, Digital Vision, says: “Brian’s depth of knowledge of the post process will be invaluable as we seek to grow our business in this key region. His understanding of real-world demands enables him to discuss issues on both a practical and a technical level.”
