We couldn’t be more excited to announce the addition of two new members to our Revelator family. Film and commercial directors Carlyn Hudson and Drew Xanthopoulos have joined us at Revelator, and will join our company partners Matt Muir and Chris Ohlson as new storytellers on projects for both our agency and B2B clients. So let’s get to know them:
Prior to Revelator, Carlyn was a freelance director for TV commercials, narrative, and documentary films. With seven years of experience, Carlyn has worked with commercial clients including Vice, Verizon, Dell, and Legos, and has been involved in the production of TV series such as Richard Linklater’s UP TO SPEED for Hulu and A&E’s SHIPPING WARS. She also co-produced Andrew Bujalski’s COMPUTER CHESS (Sundance 2013) and was the casting director for his latest effort, RESULTS (Magnolia Pictures). Carlyn appeared in Austin Monthly’s 20 in their 20s edition in early 2014, she programs the popular indie film series Cinema East and is currently in post-production on her first feature comedy, THE BIG SPOON.
“When I mentioned to a colleague that I was joining Revelator, she swooned,” Hudson said. “That’s the kind of confidence that this company inspires. I’m thrilled to make work alongside such dedicated, gifted filmmakers.” Revelator owner and creative lead, Matt Muir, said Carlyn’s blush-worthy praise aside, her experience brings exceptional value to the creative services provided by the company. “Carlyn’s sharp wit, invaluable writing skills and unique creative vision is a perfect addition to our shop,” Muir said. Carlyn appeared in Austin Monthly’s 20 in their 20s edition in early 2014.
Drew Xanthopoulos’ main areas of focus are documentary projects and commercial cinematography. He has created numerous pieces that have premiered at Sundance, SXSW, Edinburgh International Film Festival, and AFI Docs. Drew was a recipient of IFP’s Documentary Spotlight and Tribeca Film Institute’s Documentary Grant for his forthcoming documentary feature, THE SENSITIVES. Drew’s award-winning short film, WESTERN BROTHERS’ ADVENTURE STORY, has also been implemented into the educational programs for The Young Storytellers Foundation in Los Angeles and the Vimeo Video School. Drew is currently in post-production on his THE SENSITIVES, and we’re excited about Drew’s keen eye and documentary experience will complement the video services we provide. “I’m truly excited to work with two of Austin’s best filmmakers,” says Drew, “we all make work from the heart and love what we do. Working with others who have that same passion doesn’t really make it ‘work’ anymore.”
We’re over the moon about our new family members, and you’ll be able to learn more about Carlyn and Drew very soon, as they’ll be posting their own blog entries about their creative approach and past production experiences in the coming weeks.
