Atlanta—SIM Digital today announces that Brennen Dicker has
joined its Atlanta office as Post Production Manager. Dicker, who previously
served as Director of Post Production Sales at Crawford Media Services, arrives
with broad experience in all aspects of film and television production, and
deep ties to Atlanta’s production community. In his new role, he will lead SIM Atlanta’s
Bling Digital unit which provides a variety of leading-edge data management,
dailies processing and post production services to film and television productions.
SIM Digital also maintains facilities in Los Angeles, Toronto, Vancouver,
Halifax and Beijing.

“Brennen’s
appointment is part of our deep commitment to the Atlanta market, our desire to
build strong relationships with producers and provide them with innovative
solutions across their workflows,” said Ann DeGuire, General Manager of SIM
Digital, Atlanta. “He brings in-depth experience, a passion for the production
industry and a long history of helping producers solve their challenges. It’s
great to have him on our team.”
Dicker
will work alongside DeGuire in growing the company’s business in the Southeast.
SIM Digital is virtually unique in its ability to supply both production needs,
such as camera equipment, and emerging post production services, such as on-set
and near-set dailies, Avid rentals and finishing services. The company’s Bling
Digital unit has experienced rapid growth as film and television productions
adopt new workflows that encompass services that previously required brick and
mortar post production facilities. SIM Digital Atlanta currently provides
production and post-production services for a number of episodic television
series and film productions, including CW’s The
Vampire Diaries
and The Originals,
and The Sundance Channel’s Rectify.

“I’ve
been familiar with SIM Digital for several years and know it as a very
buttoned-up company with a great reputation,” Dicker observed. “I see
tremendous opportunities for SIM to grow further. Its ability to package camera
equipment and other gear with post services is a distinct advantage.”
Dicker
joined Crawford Media Services (originally Crawford Communications) in 2004.
Earlier in his career, he was executive producer and principal of American
Mongrel Productions, a Chicago production company, specializing in commercials,
documentaries and sports programming. His background also includes work in
broadcast television as a producer, camera operator, audio engineer and assistant
editor.
Dicker
has been active in many Atlanta-area industry-related service organizations. He
serves on the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) Atlanta Advisory
Council, the Georgia Production Partnership (GPP) board, the Metro Atlanta
Chamber Advisory board, and the Atlanta Jewish Film Festival Steering
Committee. He is also on the board for The Frazer Center, a nonprofit that
helps children and adults with disabilities.
