Light Iron – a post production leader specializing in content originated on file-based motion cameras – has hired Executive Producer Jean Lane for a newly created role to lead its growing New York facility. Lane’s move from Goldcrest Post comes as Light Iron expands their SoHo operations.
CEO Michael Cioni says that Lane’s experience was the right fit for the growing company. “I directly oversaw our Manhattan launch a year ago, but then looked for a New Yorker to take over the reins as we moved into year two. Jean brings strong managerial, technical, and client relations experience to the team.”
Lane has led teams at Goldcrest Post and Lost Planet Editorial, overseeing post production services for award-winning documentaries and innovative commercials. Her long career also includes creative editorial, production management, and casting. “I’ve admired Light Iron for its cutting-edge contributions to the industry, and am proud to join the management team,” says Lane.
Doubling square footage at the 580 Broadway location, Light Iron’s expansion creates additional edit suites for the company to package with its on-set dailies services and Digital Intermediate services. “We’ve customized these boutique suites to the New York film community’s tastes,” remarks Lane. “They’re high-end, spacious, and comfortable. And clients love the collaborative integration with picture finishing.”
Editor of The Last Five Years, Sabine Hoffman, ACE agrees: “Light Iron NY provides an amazing editorial workspace, with support at every step from dailies to finishing. The expert staff had answers for all our challenges, providing simulations of what might be possible in DI and making nearly impossible requests happen immediately. The direct-from-Avid screenings of each cut were fantastic and I look forward to working with this incredible team again.”
