From the publication:
Final Frontier was officially opened in Singapore. The new unit will be led by newly hired executive producer Ryan Shanholtzer.
Final Frontier has previously carried out assignments for agencies in Singapore including R / GA, The Secret Little Agency, VML and Facebook Creative Shop for several clients including DBS Bank, DASH, Uber (currently Grab), Sephora and CIMB Bank.
Managing Director Gus Karam says, “The new Singapore office is a natural movement expanding from our Asian headquarters in Shanghai. We knew it was only a matter of time before we started operations in the APAC hub. I have a great admiration for the creative industry in Singapore. I know some of the best creatives in Asia and the world who call Singapore home. I am excited to see the beautiful work this new branch will do. "
The US-born Shanholtzer produced traditional live action, stop motion, CG and cel animation for several years before producing visual effects for feature films. His career includes positions at agencies such as Wieden + Kennedy Portland, Droga5 NY, Publicis Seattle and most recently 72andSunny Singapore, where he produces work for clients such as Nike, Coca-Cola, T-Mobile, Dodge and Toyota.
Gus Karam says: "We are delighted that Ryan has joined the team. His 360-degree vision and extensive experience on the agency side bring compelling insights into our global operations. He is the ideal candidate not only for his animation experience, but also for his connection and love for Singapore and the APAC region. "
The incoming EP says, "I'm glad to have the opportunity to join Final Frontier. I've known them for a while and have always been impressed with their energy and enthusiasm for the craft. For me it's also great to be right back in the animation to work, which I've always loved. I look forward to continuing to build on the great work they have done. "
In addition to the company's headquarters in Shanghai, Final Frontier has a back office and a studio in Buenos Aires as well as its sister company Le Cube in Madrid, which operates around the clock in several time zones. Final Frontier also operates in the US and LATAM in collaboration with the film production company Landia.
