Santa Monica-based King and Country, a live-action production company with an emphasis on design and effects, has hired industry vet Lisa Miller as managing director of Networks & Brands. The appointment comes as King and Country continues to widen its footprint in the entertainment marketing business.
Prior to joining King and Country, Miller was VP of integrated marketing at LA-based entertainment creative agency mOcean, where she spent the last six years. Miller entered the media industry working in news at ABC and Fox affiliates. She spent a few years working with various production, design and editorial companies as a producer. In 2002, she joined Citizen Pictures, a Denver-based broadcast and commercial production company, as an executive producer before being promoted to senior executive producer.
She has worked on high-profile 360-degree campaigns, network rebrands, show launches and advertising for broadcast clients including ABC, CBS, Discovery Communications, Dish Network, Scripps Networks and Turner Broadcasting. She was also involved in the 10th Anniversary Campaign for Ellen and Warner Brothers Television, which won a Daytime Emmy.
“For years, I’ve been aware of King and Country’s extraordinary ability to integrate live-action with stellar design and effects,” says Miller. “The level of detail that they apply to a project from the conceptual phase through execution was a major draw for me. Beautiful imagery and sound strategy are certainly critical to a campaign’s success, but the ability to properly execute every stage of a project in a way that makes our clients feel completely supported and confident is equally important. I truly believe that King and Country strikes that balance perfectly.”
The company recently completed projects for Fox Sports, Golf Channel, History Channel, NBC and Travel Channel, to name a few.
