The creative alliance between Brian Buongiorno’s Tone Visuals and Lucky Post brings high-end visual effects finishing and color services to the newly launched Dallas post house. Buongiorno designed Tone Visuals' new Dallas-based color and VFX suite at Lucky Post, and welcomes its first project next week.
Buongiorno met the team at Lucky Post via its sister company Directorz, lending his color talent to a variety of commercials helmed by the production company during the past three years. The conversation surrounding a formal collaboration evolved when Lucky Post opened earlier this year. The resulting alliance allows for a streamlined and efficient creative process for clients.
“This is a partnership borne out of mutual respect and admiration, and a genuine enthusiasm for the industry,” says Buongiorno. “It is a dream situation to have a home within Lucky Post – and create a unique environment for clients in collaboration with (EP) Jessica Berry and her team.
“Brian has the perfect blend of talent, creativity and technical acumen – and is amazing with clients,” comments Lucky Post EP Jessica Berry. “He brings all of that and his entrepreneurial viewpoint to the company.”
