Renowned New York City post-production house Crew Cuts has announced the advancement of two new additions to the production team. Diana Seldin has been promoted from Production Assistant to Producer and Sydney Ferleger will be adding the Producer role to her Marketing and Sales agenda. These promotions highlight the company’s commitment to internal growth and are already in full swing. Seldin and Ferleger will report to Executive Producer, Nancy Jacobsen.
In their new roles, Sydney and Diana will be in charge of the day-to-day producer tasks including bidding new work, scheduling, managing projects, overseeing sessions, and maintaining client relations. Seldin came to Crew Cuts in January of 2017 and has continually been a vital asset to the team. After studying film at Boston University she worked as a freelance Production Assistant until she began her employment at Crew Cuts.
“I feel very fortunate to have been given this opportunity to take on new responsibilities at Crew Cuts. We had a busy summer and I am continuously excited for my future here,” states Seldin, “especially because I get to work alongside such a lovely team of producers!” Ferleger joined the Crew in May of 2017 after a 2-year run with global animatic company, Animated Storyboards. Her production experience in conjunction with her sales background makes her a great candidate for the role. “I have enjoyed working for Crew Cuts from day one,” says Ferleger. “By taking on the producer role, I have started to genuinely understand the processes of our internal workflow, which will ultimately aid me in my marketing and sales endeavours in the long run.”
“I couldn’t be happier about Diana and Sydney moving in to production roles here. They both show the motivation and recognisable work ethic that we seek. I truly feel that promoting from within makes us stronger, promotes our loyalty, and is an encouragement to our employees that hard work really does pay off,” states Jacobsen.
