)-- With Mmmmm Society, Ellis has assembled a bounty of creative minds with a diverse range of backgrounds; from graphic novels, cg animation, digital effects, product and narrative still photography, to branded shorts and award winning feature films allowing the company to operate in a range of technologies, formats, and visual styles.
Remarks Ellis on what propelled her new venture, “When I relocated seven years ago and started producing out of Portland and San Francisco, I realized the depth of brilliant creativity in these areas. A core mission for Mmmmm Society is to discover and promote Northwest and San Francisco talents.”
Mmmmm Society’s roster of artists includes Jeffrey Bost, director of the award-winning animated environmental short, “The Krill is Gone,” NY Art Directors Club Gold and ADLA Award-winning director and animator Tim Boxell, high concept filmmakers and graphic novelists the Pander Bros., director and photographer Alicia J. Rose whose provocative work includes the recently wrapped Cake music video, Clio Award-winning director and photographer Michael Washington, and Goa Lobaugh, founder of liquidbuddha.studios, and visual effects director for the new film “Thrive: What on Earth Will it Take?”
Ellis acquired her comprehensive knowledge of the production process during more than a decade working in feature development and production management on films, music videos and commercials. She has served as a creative executive at Tim Burton Productions, and produced Amy Goldstein’s feature film “East of A,” which garnered festival awards from Santa Barbara to Stockholm. Most recently, she has produced commercial content for Panasonic, Mitsubishi, RIM/BlackBerry, and live-action 3D for LG Electronics.
Of her company’s unique moniker, she adds, “Mmmmm is the universal sound we make when something is good.”
