Brooklyn-based production company tinygiant is pleased to announce the promotion of award-winning producer Ella Nuortila to the role of executive producer.
Ella lives by the phrase, “where there’s a will, there’s a way,” and it shows in her work. Since she’s been with tinygiant, the company has won a Silver Lion at Cannes, and a Webby Award for director Charlie Mysak’s Adaptoys campaign “Play Without Limits.”
Nuortila is excited about her expanded role as executive producer, and for the future of tinygiant, saying, “We are able to stay competitive because we are not a huge machine, but a nimble, small company capable of handling all sized jobs. tinygiant is all about being current and adaptable in the 2017 media landscape, while still being able to meet the old-school expectations.”
Founder Veronica Diaferia adds, “Nothing makes me more proud than being able to nurture talent. Having someone like Ella become Executive Producer adds priceless value to the company. She has been with us since day one. This is someone who knows the directors, someone whose work ethics perfectly match with mine, so there is no adjusting, no training, only hitting the ground running and growing the company. Ella’s promotion means tinygiant can expand the roster and aim higher than ever.”
After graduating in her native Finland, Nuortila moved to New York to work for SALTY Features, a critically acclaimed documentary production company. She was promoted from Production Assistant to Co-Producer in a short amount of time, learning every aspect of the industry she could get her hands on. During her time with SALTY Features, the company won an Oscar and had a film at Sundance. While there, she Co-Produced the feature documentary (Dis)Honesty - The Truth About Lies, as well as music videos and numerous short films, including the award-winning short Six, and feature-length films, like one of China’s biggest action film, MOJIN: The Lost Legend.
Nuortila continues, “I’m a firm believer in that idea that people want to work with people they like. We have built our whole team (starting from our directors) from individuals who will always go the extra mile. We want to take good care of everyone, whether you are our on-set PA or the client. Our goal is not only to impress the people who give us work, but also the people who are employed by us.”view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessTinygiant, Fri, 18 Aug 2017 14:31:40 GMT
