Stated Wolf on his hiring, “Joining the team with Traci [Carlson] and Rich [Peete] has already been rewarding. As soon as we met we recognized our shared values and approach. They are also a team that, like myself, started from the ground floor which really allows us to have a similar footing.”

Wolf notes that over the course of the company’s history, it’s done “what many want to do,” working on everything from “independent films, streaming docuseries, [and] studio films” to “big commercial campaigns.”

He brings creative chops and production savvy that’s in line with our taste and approach to filmmaking. We are thrilled to have him and the amazing directors he works with in our expanding family.”
