No one is in a better position to launch a company like Provider Media than Reid Brody. A serial entrepreneur who’s played a key role in building some of the most successful companies in the production and post production industries, Reid knows what it takes to create efficiency, value and trust.
A co-founder or partner in companies like Filmworkers Club, Treehouse Edit, Color Collective, Quriosity Productions, The Colonie, Ammo Content and 2DS Productions, Reid has done everything from partner with ad agencies and brands to working with top producers, directors, editors and colorists to producing indie features in Hollywood. His vision for Provider Media is based on his experience starting and growing companies that now feel like monuments to how business used to be done.
A self-described “rogue son of Jewish retail,” Reid walked away from the family business, one of the oldest fish markets in Chicago, and chose to develop his business acumen in more creative settings. A musician with an interest in technology, he found his way into post production, where he eventually wound up at the Chicago office of Editel, one of the first multi-city post facilities in the US.
From there he used his contacts with both ad agencies and program producers to co-found Filmworkers Club, a top color correction and VFX studio, which grew to include offices in Dallas, Chicago, and Nashville. Reid expanded the company’s service offering to handle a broad range of media categories, and began to invest in and advise fellow entrepreneurs launching their own studios in areas as diverse motion graphics, digital production and creative editorial.
Along the way, Reid found time to co-produce a number of independent features. An accomplished writer, director, songwriter and music producer, he’s combined his success with Filmworkers with his innate business savvy and creative instincts, giving him a unique perspective on creative trends and the evolving technologies of production and post for both advertising and entertainment clients.
