The Fifty Fifty team just keeps expanding.
Shortly after the arrival of new Commercial Director, Victoria Finlay, the Soho-based post production house has just welcomed two new additions to their team. Matt Squires, previously Senior Producer at Prodigious and Gavin Allingham, previously Head of Audio at Crow, have joined the company at a very exciting time of growth.
With 20+ years of collective experience under their belts, Fifty Fifty are confident that these new team members will be able to help drive the company forward with the recent influx of productions coming through the door, as Matt steps into a Senior Commercials Producer role and Gavin takes on Senior Dubbing Mixer.
Commercial Director, Victoria Finlay, quotes “We are delighted and excited that Gavin has joined Fifty Fifty as Senior Dubbing Mixer. Gavin’s attention to detail and ability to interpret client needs make him an invaluable addition to the team. Gavin brings a wealth of experience having worked within a large and busy audio department across various genres. His attention to detail and ability to interpret client needs whilst providing strong creative input makes him an invaluable addition to the team".
Some of his credits include ‘Back to the Land’ for 7Wonder (BBC2), ‘Officially Amazing’ for Lion (CBBC), ‘How to Lose Weight Well’ for Little Gem (Channel 4) and ‘Chasing the Dream’ for Wilson Worldwide (Sky 1).
Chris Johnson, Head of Production at Fifty Fifty, quotes:
“It’s great to have Matt on board; he has a fantastic depth of knowledge producing commercials projects during his time at Prodigious and Splice and his excellent client management skills will be a great asset to our growing short form department. Matt will be looking after our existing short form clients and helping us to implement our continued plans for growth in the commercials sector.”
Previously managing short form post production projects simultaneously, for television, online and cinema, Matt has worked closely with the likes of global agencies such as Saatchi & Saatchi and Publicis on brands including Toyota, GSK, AXA, Morrisons and Yoplait. As well as this, he managed post for Prodigious’ production company Tangerine films, and the VFX work for their web launch films for Jaguar Land Rover and Rolls Royce.
“I’m very happy to be joining a fantastic team at Fifty Fifty, and looking forward to helping to grow the short form department alongside the other exciting expansions happening at the company” says Matt.
