It’s always nice when good things happen to good people. Recently, long-time industry post pros Greg Ciaccio and Paul Chapman joined Sim Post LA — Greg as VP of post and Paul as VP of engineering and technology.
postPerspective has known both Greg and Paul for years and often call on them to pick their brains about technology, so having them end up working together warms our hearts.
Sim Post is a division of Sim, which provides end-to-end solutions for TV and feature film production and post production in LA, Vancouver, Toronto, New York and Atlanta.
“I’ll be working with the operations, sales, technology and finance teams to ensure tight integration between departments — always in the service of our clients,” reports Ciaccio. “Our ability to offer end-to-end services is a great advantage in the industry. I’ve admired the work produced by the talented group at Sim Post LA (formerly Chainsaw and Bling), and now I’m pleased to be a part of the team.”
Ciaccio’s resume includes executive operations management positions for creative service divisions at Ascent, Technicolor and Deluxe, and has led product development teams creating products. He also serves as chair of the ASC Motion Imaging Technology Council’s Workflow Committee, currently focused on ACES education and enlightenment, and is a member of the UHD/HDR Committee and Joint ASC/ICG/VES/PGA VR Committee.
Chapman, a Fellow of SMPTE, has held executive technology and engineering positions over the last 30 years, including his long-time role at FotoKem, as well as stints at Unitel Video and others. His skillset includes expertise in storage and networking infrastructure, facility engineering and operations.
“Sim has a lot of potential, and when the opportunity was presented to lead their engineering and technology departments, it really intrigued me,” says Chapman. “The LA facility itself is well constructed from the ground up. I’m looking forward to working with the creative and technical teams across the organization to enhance our technical operations, foster innovation and elevate performance for our clients.”
Greg and Paul are based at Sim’s operations in Hollywood.
