Former Jam3 Executive Producer Graham Budd has launched Quiver, a Toronto-based integrated production management company.
Working with a roster of producing partners, Quiver is positioned to deliver creative experiences across all marketing channels by bringing together the strengths of each company to execute a particular project.
By leveraging crossovers in production capabilities, Quiver is uniquely positioned to produce efficiently and creatively in the face of declining production budgets.
“More and more agencies are given project-based assignments,” says Matt Cammaert, president of Cheil Canada. “There is the increasing need to be innovative, but retaining increasingly specialized technical and creative talent is expensive. It’s a zero-sum game.”
“Quiver is a direct response to this trend,” adds Graham. “Our model allows our clients to focus on strategic and creative goals while Quiver brings together the best production talent available to do the job.”
Quiver’s family of companies includes specialists in interactive production and design, virtual reality and augmented reality, mobile games and apps, installations, live events, stunts, live-action and animation.
Quiver is currently working on projects with ad agencies Cheil Canada and Sid Lee and is producing a brand-integrated documentary series for Bell Media called Unclimbed, and presented by Jeep.
