2013 is the year of expansion for mixed-media production studio Roger, which is pleased to welcome Josh Libitsky as Executive Producer. The production industry veteran will combine forces with Owner/Creative Director Terence Lee and Head of Production Drew Neujahr to help grow the company’s live-action projects and advertising clientele.
“I'm super excited to have Josh on board the Roger bandwagon,” says Lee. “He brings a wealth of experience and even more, fits perfectly into our culture. He bridges the line between running a studio and nurturing our creative fires. In a short time, he has already contributed immensely, and I look forward to a bright future with him here.”
"We're really happy to have Josh as part of the team,” adds Neujahr. “His personality is a great fit for the studio, and he'll be a huge asset as we push into new markets. I think it was Lincoln who said, ‘We're moving on up.’ No wait, that was the Jeffersons; regardless, it applies here. Roger 2013."
“I really liked Terry’s vision and the way he runs Roger,” remarks Libitsky. "There's a great energy and vibe here; it is an artistic environment where they focus on the creative as much as the business side of things. I am humbled by the talented group of artists. I see a lot of room for growth at Roger, and look forward to working with the team to make that happen."
Most recently, Libitsky was Executive Producer at bi-coastal production company Stardust, where he worked on projects for T-Mobile, Coke Zero, Ford and Mercedes, among others, following three years as Head of Production. With more than a decade of experience, a strong background in live-action and motion graphics, and a relentless work ethic, Libitsky collaborated with a large number of clientele while at Stardust.
Prior to that, Libitsky launched the Inner Circle Collective, partnering with a number of talented directors (and Brand New School alums) in New York and serving as Executive Producer. The team was repped by Curious Pictures, creating spots for Citibank, retailer A.J. Wright and Ronzoni pasta, as well as a branding campaign for Turner Classic Movies and CMT, among others.
Libitsky started his career in production at Brand New School where he spent five years as a Senior Producer. Clients included Ogilvy, TBWA\Chiat\Day, Deutsch, Saatchi & Saatchi, BBDO, The Martin Agency, Grey, Arnold, MTV, FOX and Discovery Channel.
