SIM Capitalizes on Bling Digital’s high-end workflow services  to  expand
into the New York market

LOS ANGELES—The SIM Group, a leading supplier of production and
post-production equipment and services to the feature and television industry,
announces the expansion of its services into New York to provide dailies and
off-line, and finishing. The Brooklyn facility — which currently houses a
DaVinci Resolve color bay, Avid edit bays and Colorfront dailies solutions —
has already provided work on shows including Mr. Robot, Forever, American
, Season 3 of The Following
and several pilots.
“New York is a vibrant production community, and SIM
has the breadth of services to offer unique workflow packages to producers and
content creators,” said James Martin, Chief Strategy Officer, SIM Group. Bling Digital has been a part of SIM Group since 2009,
specializing in on-set data management, digital dailies, editorial system
rentals and data archiving.

Chris Parker, CTO, Sim Group, agreed. “With the
multitude of studios and productions cropping up in Brooklyn, we saw an
immediate need for Bling’s services. The response has been overwhelming. The
market is hungry for our unique way of offering workflow.”
With the establishment of Bling Digital, a foothold
has been created for other SIM Group brands to pair their services. Chainsaw,
Pixel Underground and now the newest addition, Tattersall Sound and Picture,
also see potential in New York.  
Bill DeRonde, President, Chainsaw, agrees that New
York is a viable market for Chainsaw’s services as well. “The vitality and
strength of the East Coast production community is something we want to embrace. We are excited for the opportunity to service existing NY-based
clients and begin to build new relationships.”
The SIM Group views the East Coast as a great
location-based community that could benefit from end-to-end solutions. “With
our robust services and diverse client base, we see this as a chance to further
our growth and expand our client roster. We can now offer the East Coast a range
of services, to keep pace with the growing demand of the production community,”
said Gavin Barclay, VP, Bling.
Leo De Wolff, Workflow Producer for Bling Digital, New York, noted that
the new operation has generated an overwhelmingly positive response from
cinematographers, editors, and DITs. “We are thoroughly enjoying our early
success and repaying it with ever-stellar service based on communication,
attention to detail and workflow customization,” he said. “We’ve found outstanding
talent from the New York talent pool and, as we continue to grow, we expect to
further enhance our offerings to a local market that has been very receptive to
