a52 Promotes Megan Meloth to EP
After helping a52 and sister studio Elastic more than double in size since 2008, Megan Meloth is being promoted to EP. The multitalented powerhouse – who has worked across the agency, production, and post-production spectrums – will join Jennifer Sofio Hall in the studio’s EP lineup.
“Megan just gets the production process, from start to finish,” stated Hall. “Whether she’s working with agency creatives, directors, or the folks in the edit suites, she can understand their needs and unite them with a common vision. She is a natural leader who is an ideal fit for this EP role.”
Meloth is behind numerous award-winning film, long-form, directorial, animation, TV development, and commercial work, including Nike’s highly regarded Puppets, P&G’s Olympic work, and spots for Honda’s Crosstour vehicle. She has also participated in campaigns for Volvo, Intel, Mercedes, Target, Microsoft, Acura, and Lexus, working closely with directors such as Daniel Kleinman, Dante Ariola, Mike Mills, Kinka Usher, Tony Kaye, Erich Joiner, and Lance Acord to name a few.
“After 15 years in the industry, I know quality and talent when I see them, and a52 defines both,” noted Meloth. “I am honored and excited that such a consistently excellent company would express such long-term faith in me. I intend to work harder than ever to continue a52’s constant evolution as a top visual effects studio.”
Established in 1997 as a destination for the latest high-end photoreal visual effects, a52 has become home to the industry’s most innovative and talented artists. What began as an extension of award-winning editorial company Rock Paper Scissors, and drawing on the talented directorial roster of Elastic, a52 is now a full-service studio in Santa Monica, led by industry leaders Patrick Murphy and Andy Hall. Best known for seamless visual effects integration, the studio consistently works with top directors, agencies and clients earning not only an Emmy for Outstanding Commercial achievement, but recognition from numerous award shows including: AICP, Andy, BDA, Belding, Clios, British Design and Art Direction, International Monitor, International Automotive Advertising, London International Advertising and One Show awards.
