September 26, 2018 by Screenmag
One at Optimus, the production arm of Optimus, today announced that Jamieson Mulholland and Jay Patton have signed with ONE as directors.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Jamieson and Jay to the ONE roster,” says Optimus National Director of Sales Tim Jacobs. “Jamieson brings deep cinematography expertise and specializes in extremely technical tabletop shoots. We’re excited to offer his unique set of skills to our clients. Jay’s strengths are found in his work with real people, documentary style projects and stop motion expertise. The two bring significant heft to our directorial offering.”
Mulholland has worked as a cinematographer and a photographer for almost a decade. With significant experience shooting tabletop elements, his transition to a directing role with a focus on tabletop and visual storytelling is a natural progression. He has worked for agencies including DDB, FCB, Golin and Leo Burnett on brands such as BCBS, Marshall’s, Jimmy Dean, KitchenAid and McDonald’s.
“Tabletop is a pure expression of cinematography – it’s all about the light, color, movement and a myriad of small, visual details,” comments Mulholland. “This sort of visual intelligence is exactly what I have been studying and cultivating since I first picked up a camera 20 years ago, and I’m excited to have landed at a place like One at Optimus where I can continue to grow.”
Previously with Dictionary Films, Patton has 10 years of professional commercial directing experience. He has worked on a wide range of projects for agencies including Leo Burnett, mcgarrybowen and Y&R on brands such as Black & Mild, Similac, Embassy Suites and Philadelphia Cream Cheese.
“Optimus is one of the industry’s premiere post houses,” says Patton. “One at Optimus consistently works on and attracts great projects, and maintains a roster of well-respected, exceptional directors. I was drawn to ONE’s reputation for doing awesome work, and I’m excited to be a part of their energy and creativity this company brings to clients around the country.”
