Craig Murray Prods., which specializes in creating film trailers and TV campaigns for studio clients, has upped Frank Chiocchi to president and executive creative director of its Westside offices.Chiocchi was senior VP and creative director at the Burbank-based company, where he oversaw the development of trailers and campaigns for “Face/Off,” “Blade,” “Lost in Space,” “I Know What You Did Last Summer” and “How Stella Got Her Groove Back.” In 1997, Chiocchi opened the firm’s second office, on L.A.’s Westside. He will continue to oversee creative operations at the facility. “CMP’s success in expanding and diversifying our slate of films and clients is in large part due to the dedicated performance of Frank,” said CEO Craig Murray. “He has a unique knack for creating provocative motion picture campaigns that grab attention and sell tickets.” Prior to joining CMP as a senior writer/producer in 1993, Chiocchi worked for both the CBS and ABC networks as a writer/producer and before that, owned an advertising agency in Phoenix.
