Filmworkers and Vitamin Sign with Heart, Brains & Nerve for Midwest Representation
CHICAGO – Filmworkers has contracted Nathan Skillicorn and his company Heart, Brains, & Nerve to serve as its sales representative in the Midwest. Skillicorn will represent Filmworkers and its affiliate, the hybrid production studio Vitamin for advertising projects.
Although Filmworkers and Vitamin are well established in Chicago and have strong relationships with local advertising agencies, Skillicorn sees tremendous opportunities for growth both by expanding those ties here and by reaching out to other markets. “Both Filmworkers and Vitamin have strong brands, great resources and excellent talent,” Skillicorn says. “Agencies that have worked with them, love them; agencies that haven’t, will.”
Skillicorn will promote all the various services offered by Filmworkers and Vitamin, which range from traditional post-production services such as visual effects, compositing and color grading, to design, graphics, animation and design driven production. He will also seek appropriate opportunities for other companies associated with Filmworkers, including creative retouching and pre-media specialist Giannini Creative.
Skillicorn launched Heart, Brains & Nerve in 2010 and represents commercial advertising and entertainment talent, including the production companies Big Deahl and The Artists Company. He also represents some of the industry’s top original animation, artful live action and creative digital talent through Free Agents-Patricia Claire Co., including Buck, Nexus, Passion Pictures, Elastic, Hornet, Pleix, Nexus Interactive Arts and Bossa Digital.
“I want to be a resource for creatives and producers by helping to facilitate their projects from beginning to end,” Skillicorn says. “Filmworkers and Vitamin provide post-production and design components that make it a good fit for my roster. I’m excited to be a part of the Filmworkers family.”
