Technicolor (Thailand) has named Ian Maycock as the new managing director of its Bangkok facilities, a key hub for servicing filmmakers and distributors in the pan-Asian region.
Maycock who has worked in Australia, Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai and Malaysia, has a background in the production and post-production businesses of Asian films and TV. He first joined the company last May as director of business development.
Technicolor (Thailand) has established a global reach through manufacturing release prints for countries from China to Australia and from Japan to the Middle East.
'Prints produced in Thailand may play on neighborhood multiplexes throughout the US and the rest of the world, plus we dub and subtitle them into a multitude of languages,' said Maycock.
The company has a long list of Hollywood clients including Buena Vista, Columbia, Tristar, Dreamworks SKG, Disney, UIP, Fireworks, ICON, Intermedia, Lakeshore, Miramax, New Line as well as many Asian producers.
The Bangkok facilities were originally established in 1977 by CineColor Lab which Technicolor took over in 2004 before developing it into a full service film laboratory. Technicolor is a division of Thomson.
