We want to officially welcome creative super-minds Cap Gun Collective to LA! The commercial production company announces the opening of their Santa Monica office with the hiring of Executive Producer Jason Botkin. Hailing from an extensive production background, Botkin was the Founder and Managing Director of music video company Streetgang Films, and most recently, was the EP for commercial production stalwart Furlined. In conjunction with the west coast opening, Cap Gun Collective has launched a sleek rebranded website, featuring its expanded US directorial roster that includes founder Alex Fendrich, Docter Twins, Jeppe Ronde, Jonathan Doe, Michael Sewandono, Spooner Bonde, Tomas Mankovsky, and Tom Haines.
The newness doesn’t stop there. The website sees the launch of Cap Gun TV (CGTV) – a hybrid production studio that develops, produces, and markets original content for multiple platforms. Currently featured is the hit web series Teachers from director Matt Miller and improv comedy troupe The Katydids. The series is showcased on The Onion’s website and is being developed into a longer format series. Also on the channel is Alex Fendrich’s pilot “The Venue”, winner of last year’s Comedy Central Pilot Competition. Future plans for the innovative CGTV model include fostering collaboration with clients to find new ways of integrating brand participation into original content.
Cap Gun Collective was originally founded in Chicago in 2009 by Executive Producer Matt Abramson, director Alex Fendrich, and producer Kaitlyn Parks. The company quickly grew, and opened its London office in 2011 with Executive Producer Oliver Allgrove. Cap Gun Collective is part of the prolific motley of Whitehouse Post “One Roof” partner companies that includes Gentleman Scholar and Carbon VFX.
