Pacifica singing Melody’s tune

Will oversee sound packaging, Echo Sound London

Joseph Melody, formerly prexy of Echo Sound Services, has been named CEO of TV-sound post-production company Pacifica Sound Group in Burbank.

Melody will oversee sound-packaging operations at the company, which is operated by parent company Pacifica Media Affiliates. PMA acquired Echo Sound in July 1999. Melody will also supervise Pacifica’s newly launched Echo Sound London. He will report to PMA president Galen Walker.

As a sound supervisor, Melody has won eight Emmy Awards and 15 Golden Reels.

Melody’s “knowledge of the process of post-production and his relationships with the decision-makers on all levels of our industry make him the only choice for this very important task,” PMA chief Dana Arnold said.

A series of additional exec and other appointments were also announced Thursday at Pacifica Sound.

Former Echo Sound supervisor G. Michael Graham was named president at Pacifica Sound Group. Wayne Gordon, formerly VP and sound director at Los Angeles’ Wilshire Stages, was appointed senior VP of studio facilities at Pacifica Sound, and Pacifica/Echo scheduling supervisor Sue Jesse was upped to VP.

Timothy Borquez, formerly senior sound supervisor and lead mixer at Horta Editorial and Sound, was named president of Pacifica/Digital, formerly Digital Sound Works and the company’s division for direct-to-video and feature-animation markets. And veteran re-recording mixer Rick Alexander is newly aboard at Pacifica Sound’s newly redesigned Stage Three at Pacifica Sound Stages, formerly the Larson Sound Center.

Sales vets Richard Ellis and Matt Preble were both named VP sales and marketing, and Mark Friedgen was named director of editorial services.
