New Orleans, LA (PRWEB) July 08, 2015
Today, Spectrum FX (http://www.spectrumeffects.com), a feature film and television special effects company established in 1992, announced plans to expand company operations to Atlanta, GA. As a member of AMPAS, DGA, VES, SAG/AFTRA, IATSE, and the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, Spectrum brings to Atlanta a depth of industry knowledge and experience with over 80 feature films and 30-plus television series to its credit.
Spectrum, winning awards from the Visual Effects Society, International Press Academy, Online Film and Television Association and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, also holds a federal firearms manufacturing license, holds federal and multi-state licenses to deal, use and manufacture explosives and is honored to represent the largest prop weaponry inventory in the world.
Of the company’s planned expansion, Spectrum FX owner, Matt Kutcher said, “While we welcome the opportunity to provide the same great service in Atlanta that our Gulf Coast customers have come to expect, we understand the challenges ahead and have dedicated considerable resources to ensure the expansion goes as smoothly as possible. Our current and future customers deserve nothing less.”
To underscore Spectrum’s commitment to their customers, Spectrum operates from a studio occupancy model—a “Partner in Production” rather than stand-alone shop—simultaneously managing multiple shows in multiple formats thus offering the widest range of options to studio executives. In addition to the studio occupancy model, Spectrum commits itself to the local community by utilizing local talent, investing in training programs and creating partnerships with community businesses. With its early days in Hollywood, Spectrum brings the aptitude but without the attitude, a mindset that has clearly set Spectrum apart.
