Encore expands to New York

Post and vfx unit will be integrated with Deluxe's Gotham facility

Encore, a Deluxe Entertainment Services Group company, has set up shop in the New York market.

The move builds on the facility’s West Coast network of post-production houses for television, including Encore in Hollywood and sister facility Level 3 in Burbank.

Encore in Hollywood boasts a vfx division with credits that include Fox’s “House” and ABC’s “Castle.” Encore’s New York-based effects group makes uses a skilled pool of local artists and provides TV post and vfx work similar to that of Encore in Hollywood.

Encore’s New York location is based out of Deluxe’s Gotham facility. The move is a rebranding of sorts, as Deluxe New York’s existing TV offering has rolled up under the Encore name.

“Having a location in New York and working as a unified group is especially exciting for all of us at Encore,” says Bill Romeo, Encore’s senior veep of TV. “The New York facility has a talented team in place and collectively we provide the most robust post-production and visual effects offering for television in the industry.”

Romeo observes that TV production in Gotham is growing rapidly, making Encore’s move well timed, and that New York-based productions are able to take advantage of significant local tax incentives.

Current Encore New York credits include HBO’s “Treme,” CBS’ “Blue Bloods” and upcoming “NYC 22.” Other Encore clients include FX’s “Justified,” Fox’s “Glee” and “House,” CBS’ “NCIS, ABC’s “The River” and HBO’s “Luck.” Film credits include “The Hurt Locker” and “Zombieland.”

Encore is wholly-owned by Deluxe Entertainment Services Group Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of MacAndrews & Forbes Holdings Inc.
