We’re delighted to announce that Natasha Gould has joined Cinesite as our new West Coast business representative & Martin Perkins joins our London studio as New Business and Bidding Manager.
Natasha will further drive client relations and business development by drawing upon her network, local knowledge and proximity to LA-based filmmakers. As the former New Business Manager at MPC, she will bring commercial value to studio executives and producers’ decision-making process and enhance communications between Hollywood and Cinesite’s international studios.
In his new role Marty will be responsible for sourcing new business, assessing the best approach and creative resources required for all potential new VFX film and episodic projects up to award for our London studio. He joins Cinesite from Framestore, where he wore multiple hats over the past three years. Marty has a deep understanding of film production, virtual production, competitive bids and expertise in building relationships with studios and VFX talent. In recent years he has produced a number of notable shows including Wonder Woman 1984, The Secret Garden and Thor: Ragnarok to name a few.
Both Natasha and Marty will work closely with Drew Jones, our Chief VFX Business Development Officer. Collectively they are well versed in tax incentives available to filmmakers, can make recommendations based on specific requirements and expertly curate teams for projects across Cinesite’s VFX studios.
Commenting on his team’s expansion, Drew said “We’re very fortunate to have Natasha & Marty join Cinesite. They each bring something special to their respective roles, but what’s common between them is their business acumen and industry knowledge. Their ability to approach the rapidly shifting industry with an eye towards efficiency, innovation and growth, is not only valuable to the company day-to-day, but for our clients as the business continues to transform to keep pace with the evolving entertainment landscape and demand for high quality content.”
