In the ever-evolving world of production, there are a few constants we’ve come to rely on: morning coffees, the familiar hum of the office, and, up until a year ago, the unmistakable presence of one Russell, affectionately known as Russ or Rusty to us and our clients.
When Russ left us a year ago, the office lost a bit of its melodic charm. Yes, our telephone system still echoed with his Frank Sinatra-esque voice, a constant reminder of the talent we were missing. But it was more than just that. His absence was palpable in every corner, from the break room that no longer echoed with his laughter to the quiet lunches devoid of his slow-cooked lamb or the divine pork roast he’d occasionally treat us to.
Fast forward to today, and the winds of joy have blown Russ right back to us! Only this time, he returns with an upgraded title: Creative Producer. The sheer excitement isn’t just limited to our in-house team. Clients, having missed his unparalleled professionalism and uncanny problem-solving skills, have expressed their thrill. And who could forget his collaborative spirit, always at the heart of our most successful projects?
It’s not just about the production expertise Russ brings in. It’s the culture he fosters. An office where humour is the antidote to stress, where music preferences are a topic of passionate debate (with Russ almost always winning with his impeccable taste), and where camaraderie is built over shared meals and memories
One cannot speak of Russ without mentioning his warmth. Those bear hugs that could melt away any Monday blues and his unwavering positive attitude have a way of lifting everyone’s spirits. It’s infectious, it’s comforting, and it’s very much Russ.
So, here’s to new beginnings with a familiar face. Russ, Rusty, Russell—whatever we might call you, know that you were deeply missed. Welcome back to the fold, and may your Sinatra serenades and delightful dishes keep adding flavour to our workdays. Here’s to creating magic, one production at a time! 🎬🎶🍖🎉
