Recent Carbon NY and former MPC executive producer brings 20+ years of industry experience, having held various production and managerial positions at companies including Absolute Post and the Mill.
Award-winning creative company, The-Artery has added recent Carbon NY and former MPC executive producer Nick Haynes to its New York City studio roster. The new hire comes on the heels of the company’s growth and evolution from boutique studio to one-stop shop, offering production, post, VFX, color, VR, and sound design across advertising, film, TV, music videos, and gaming. Haynes brings over 20+ years of experience to his new role.
In addition to his most recent positions at Carbon and MPC, Haynes served as GM/EP at Absolute Post after his tenure at The Mill, where he held various production and management positions. He has also worked on commercials and adverts, most notably for Guinness’ Basketball and Empty Chair, directed by Noam Murro; Tiffany & Co.’s Believe in Dreams, directed by Francis Lawrence; the Shadow of War game spot directed by Neil Huxley; and, most recently, Samsung’s Open up Your World directed by Henry Hobson.
“The work that The-Artery puts out is immense; so much capability held in a relatively small team,” commented Haynes. “Because of their creativity and resourcefulness, the nature of the projects is extremely broad, and that’s fascinating to me to have the opportunity to work on challenging projects that don’t simply rely on VFX but require a deep dive into new technologies and pairing them with a visual component.”
Haynes’ addition helps balance the studio’s position in creating commercial work while continuing its expansion into the feature film space.
“I love to be surprised and challenged by the opportunities we’re presented with,” he added. “There is a lot of ‘traditional’ work out there still to create, but obviously, as we continue to push the tech, new opportunities continue to arise.”
EP/Managing Director Deborah Sullivan shared, “We’ve been fortunate to have worked together in the past, so we have a good sense of shared work ethic, aspirational creative sensibilities, and a collaborative viewpoint as to the importance of developing and nurturing a strong creative environment. Nick’s background in VFX, design, experience and tech-driven projects also sits quite comfortably within our current client collaborations, and his expertise across the board is unique in that he’s touched on all these categories and can provide immense insight and leadership to our growing team.”
