Filmworkers, a post-production facility with offices in Chicago, Nashville, and Dallas, has announced the appointment of Robert Zimmerman as executive producer of the Nashville office, where he will oversee operations. Zimmerman brings more than 20 years experience to the role, including commercial, music video, and corporate media production.
“Rob Zimmerman enjoys wide respect among advertising agencies and production companies in Nashville and throughout the region,” said Filmworkers president Reid Brody. “Our clients will benefit greatly from his experience and insights as a producer in planningtheir projects. We are very excited to have him as a member of our team.”
Most recently, Zimmerman served as executive producer of Piranha Pictures, which he founded in 1995. His recent ad campaign productions include Farm Bureau Insurance and Tempur-Pedic.
In related news, Filmworkers has hired Kenny Barrickman as a producer in the Nashville office. He previously spent 10 years with the company, and his role will be working directly with clients to oversee projects passing through the facility.
Zimmerman’s plans for the facility include upgrades such as a “virtual” editing suite, close collaboration with other facilities in the Filmworkers family, and exploitation of the regional advertising market.
