Technicolor-PostWorks COO Rob DeMartin says the objective of
the move is to leverage the creative talent, workflow and technology that have
made The Room the finishing facility of choice for a growing number of independent
filmmakers and other content creators. Under Murray’s leadership, The Room has
honed a client-centric approach to feature film post-production, combining efficient
data and workflow management, state-of-the-art technology, team-based
operations and personalized service. Recent projects for The Room include St. Vincent, Her, The Giver, True Detective,
Marco Polo, Mr. Dynamite: The Rise of James Brown,
and Years of Living Dangerously.
Murray will apply a similar approach to the full range of
Technicolor-PostWorks’ film and television operations. “Ben will be our
creative and technical lead, focusing on workflow design, training, talent
management and recruiting,” DeMartin said. “He will work with clients in
pre-production, oversee project management, collaborate with our engineering
team, and assist in overall strategic planning.”
“We aim to streamline services for both features and
episodic television,” Murray said. “We will work to provide increasingly nimble
technology and a more responsive level of service across the board.”
Murray believes that the operational efficiencies that make The
Room successful translate well to the larger facility. “It’s an opportunity to extend
our agile, client-focused approach,” he stated. “As The Room rapidly grew,
particularly over the last year, the quality of service was not diluted —in
fact, it improved.  In taking this next
step, with a larger pool of talent, greater physical capacity and much higher
bandwidth, our focus will be to elevate the quality of service available for
all our clients.  I am confident that the
formula will continue to scale.”
