Metropolis Creative Agency secures Emily Compton to lead expansion of Creative and Digital Media group.
We are delighted to welcome Emily, who joins Metropolis Creative Agency from Momentum Pictures, where she rose to the role of Technical Manager for Europe and oversaw Momentum’s release schedule across both Theatrical and Home Entertainment across multiple territories. She joins Metropolis at a pivotal time as the group looks to further expand its client base into the Film and TV market to enhance their existing music and entertainment customers.
‘We are thrilled to have secured Emily, she is highly regarded in the film distribution market and her vision for the group fits perfectly with our strategy for growth and investment across all areas of media’, says Carla Maroussas, Metropolis MD. ‘The market is changing constantly, as DVD declines other delivery platforms and markets continue to open up for us and with Emily leading this group, we’re confident that our Creative and Digital Media business will continue to grow’.
‘The challenge presented by Metropolis to drive their creativity into new areas is very exciting.’ says Emily. ‘Historically, our business has come from the Home Entertainment sector, but I believe that we have a compelling creative offering that is perfectly matched to the needs of the Production and Theatrical departments too. By working throughout the lifecycle of a feature or TV Show – creating trailers, marketing collateral and EPKs etc. – in addition to the creative treatments for online and new media – we feel we can offer that illusive partnership of creative excellence and cost efficiencies’.
‘DVD continues to be important to us, but without doubt our focus needs to be beyond the physical into the data delivery domain as we seek to add value to both our existing clients and beyond into new markets’.
