Independent, creative and strategy agency The Distillery Project (TDP) has hired Neil Travers as producer and Sam Ramos as senior producer, Nik Traxler, partner and head of Production announced today.
Travers has been working as a freelance motion graphics and video producer. He is a multi-skilled content creator who is ready and excited to bring his uniquely creative and effective video solutions to TDP’s accounts.
Beginning his career in sports broadcasting, he developed a passion for motion graphics while working with the NFL. Travers then became a video production specialist at midwest retail-chain Meijer, where he worked alongside the marketing team. He helped Meijer evolve its production offerings from internal video production to short-form social media content.
Ramos is an experienced leader in content production known for producing engaging, brand-centric entertainment who previously served as a creative content production leader at retail-chain Meijer for 28 years.
Ramos’ passion for production started in the fast-paced world of broadcast news, directing commercials, sports, news, and entertainment programs. He worked on projects including Monday Night Football and the Kentucky Derby and interviewed political leaders such as George Bush, Colin Powell and Hillary Clinton. He’s led teams that have created award-winning campaigns, produced content that translated to multimedia executions, and guided teams through production’s evolution to digital and social.
“Neil and Sam are two producers any agency would dream of hiring. Both come with unique backgrounds and a wealth of experience,” said Traxler. “I love that both Sam and Neil bring a client-side perspective to our team. I’m looking forward to having them continue to work with Meijer as well as TDP’s other clients.”
