Chris Peterson Joins Chimney North America as EP of Longform Entertainment
The Chimney Group has welcomed Chris Peterson to its New York office as the new EP of longform entertainment, building on the company’s successful longform credits, which include The Dead Don’t Die, Atomic Blonde, Chappaquiddick, The Wife, and Her. Chris marks the latest in a series of exciting new additions to Chimney’s leadership team as part of the independent full-service creation agency’s ongoing expansion. 

As Chimney’s new head of film outreach, Chris will be leveraging his expertise in film finance, tax credit maximisation and technical workflows to grow Chimney’s feature film and television capabilities as a global powerhouse. To this new role, Chris brings over two decades of rich experience in production and post-production. Equipped with a diverse portfolio that spans television, film, technology, advertising, music, video game, and XR industries, Chris counts clients whose projects include Academy Award-winning feature Spotlight, Academy Award-winning documentary O.J.: Made in America, and Grammy-nominated Roger Waters: The Wall. For E! Entertainment Television’s travel series 'Wild On,' he produced shows in Argentina, Brazil, Trinidad and across the United States. He was also a post producer on 'Howard Stern On Demand.'

Commenting on the transition, Chris says: “Chimney combines the best of both worlds: a boutique feel, and global resources. Add to that the company’s expertise in financing and tax credits, and you have a truly unique resource for producers and filmmakers. I couldn’t be happier about joining the team, and bringing these resources to my friends and clients.” 

For the past eight years, Chris has been board secretary of the Post New York Alliance, which was co-founded by Chimney North America CEO Marcelo Gandola. The PNYA is a trade association that lobbied for and passed the first ever post production-only tax credit, which was recently extended for two years. Chris is also a member of SMPTE.

Says North American CEO Marcelo Gandola: “Chimney has been designed from the beginning to serve the constantly-evolving needs of the now international post industry. And having known Chris for 10 years, I know he's the perfect person to help lead our growth.”
