HINGE: PRODUCTION Q&A WITH TIFFANY PURKEYPILE “REMOTE COLLABORATION IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT TO OUR STUDIO’S PIPELINE” By RORY MCGREGOR, CEO OF COSPECTIVE As a turnkey creative studio, Hinge constantly improves and reinvents industry approaches, processes, and pipelines. The team specialize in bringing unique stories to life through design, live action, 2D & 3D animation, post-production visual effects and VR/AR. Founded in 2009, the studio is built on more than 60 years combined experience. We set up a Q&A with Production Manager Tiffany Purkeypile to uncover the studio’s intense emphasis on remote collaboration…. What have been some of the most exciting and unique projects of your career? I worked on some amazing movies during my time as a production assistant and coordinator at PDI Dreamworks, but I feel like the most unique and rewarding projects have been here at Hinge. I would say the project that really holds a special place in my heart is “Suitcase” for Adopt US Kids. I was given free reign to develop the story of how a teenager in the foster sys- tem found their ‘perfect’ family. It was my first time writing copy for our characters, in addition to my role as a storyboard artist and production manager. 30 • Broadcast Beat Magazine •
