San Francisco — Bonfire Labs has beefed up its staff with the addition of veteran producers Stephanie Hornish and Mona Salma. Hornish as senior producer and Salma as producer.
Combined, the two bring almost 30 years of experience to Bonfire’s production team.
Hornish has an extensive background in film, television, animation and visual effects. She began her career at the Colossal Pictures as an Art Dept. assistant, where she worked in live-action production, cel, stop motion and CG animation. In 1999 she moved to Industrial Light & Magic, where for the next 12 years she produced VFX for films, including Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, and Indiana Jones (The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull I). After a brief hiatus, Hornish returns to the production world and will be producing projects for all screens at Bonfire Labs (www.bonfirelabs.com).
Salma began her career at MacKenzie Cutler, a boutique editorial house in New York, as an editorial assistant in 2000 and quickly developed a love for the editorial process. Her years at MacKenzie Cutler schooled her on the world of advertising, and she has applied her skills on numerous award-winning advertisements and Super Bowl spots. In 2011, she moved back to San Francisco, her hometown, and worked in a freelance producer role for Cut + Run SF and Venables Bell & Partners before landing at Bonfire Labs.
