Film lab and post facility Cinelab London has brought on Joce Capper as creative director/strategic business development. Capper has over 25 years of experience managing and growing post and VFX companies, most notably serving as managing director of Rushes, one of the UK’s most widely admired post houses, for 20 years.
Capper’s open approach in the leadership of talent, staff and new technologies — combined with her resourceful understanding of the scalable processes needed to meet budgets and timescales — has seen her play a huge part in delivering many multi-award-winning projects for leading brands and clients across the advertising, music, entertainment and feature film sectors during her career.
Since the closure of Rushes, Capper has spent the past 18 months in management consulting for Supernova Heights. In this role, she worked across multiple companies in the media industry, including Cinelab London. Now, she will take up her role there full-time.
”I’ve learned a huge amount about myself in the last year,” says Capper. “How much I enjoy the creative industries; and that being involved in productions with creative staff is key to my happiness. I am self-motivated, but I need to be part of a friendly and talented team, be somewhere I can make a difference and believe wholeheartedly in what the company is offering.”
Capper will work with the executive management and sales teams to continue to grow the profile of Cinelab London, its client base and its international reach. Part of her responsibility will also be to help educate the industry and the next generation of filmmakers on the skills and craft needed when shooting on film.
“I have known Joce for many years, previously working with her in operational and corporate roles at Ascent Media and Deluxe Entertainment,” explains Adrian Bull, co-founder/CEO of Cinelab London. “She will help us push the business forward; I am delighted to have her working with us full-time.”
