Encore, offering post and visual effects, has promoted Robert Glass to senior VP, sales worldwide. They have also hired Augie Melendez as VP, sales. Both will work out of Encore’s Los Angeles headquarters.
With almost two decades of experience, Glass now oversees sales for Encore locations worldwide as well as Level 3 Post, a Burbank-based post shop also owned by Deluxe Entertainment Services. Part of an overall restructure to help Encore expand into emerging markets, the new post allows Glass to continue developing close ties with studios, while also leveraging the connectivity of Encore’s multiple locations to arrange custom end-to-end solutions.
“At Encore, we strive to ensure that regardless of location, productions have access to our expertise and technology on a local level. Robert has been an integral part of Encore’s ongoing success and is the perfect person to drive synergy across our facilities globally,” said Encore executive VP Bill Romeo.
Brought in by Glass, Melendez joins Encore after spending six years as director of post production at Warner Bros.’ in-house post facility, where he helped establish its TV operation. Having worked on Family Ties supervising post production, Melendez has aided in the creation of shows for nearly every network. His inaugural project for Encore is a 4K 35mm film pilot for Amazon.
In addition to its Los Angeles facility, Encore also holds offices in New York, Vancouver, London and Toronto, and offers near-set services anywhere in the world via Mobilabs, a proprietary compact system for on-site color management and dailies.
