Rabagast has expanded its management team with Jeanette Rulli Rahill as Executive Producer, North America. Jeanette is part of the natural evolution of the production service company, and its deepening commitment to the US market for projects filming in Spain, Portugal, Uruguay and Chile. Now, in addition to covering all seasons, locations and styles of project year-round, Rabagast offers a US-based executive producer who embodies the company’s experienced and passionate approach.
“All of the people at Rabagast have proven expertise, and are kindred spirits with the driving force of always doing what it takes to get the job done right,” says Owner/Managing Director Magnus Thulin. “Jeanette is exactly that way too – she knows the full scope of what clients need and want when they film around the world. She’s an important extension of who we are, committed to both aspects of the business: production + service.”
Knowledge and communication are the essential elements of production; Jeanette will work closely with bidding producers in each country and be involved in projects from start to finish, making her an essential link for a seamless production process.
“I was immediately struck by how each person at Rabagast knows how to design solutions with imagination and professionalism,” comments Jeanette Rahill. “Their energy is contagious, and the people you most want on your side when shooting abroad.”
Over the last 15 years, Rabagast has enjoyed a roster of repeat clients. They collaborate with noted ad agencies including Wieden & Kennedy, CP+B, BBH, DDB, McCann, Saatchi + Saatchi, JWT on commercials, content, and still shoots for Nike, Volvo, H&M, Spotify, Heineken, and Mercedes, among others.
This year’s Cannes Lion and Silver Clio winning commercial for the truck brand Scania for TBWA and B-Reel director Patrik Gyllström was a massive undertaking in precision tactics and large-scale production taking on the ultimate challenge, time. Rabagast created a 750,000 square foot working clock with 14 trucks, and 90 drivers, filming nonstop over 24 hours. http://www.rabagast.tv/the-scania-clock/
Throughout her career, Jeanette has produced commercials and music videos for such production companies as Partizan, Stink, Chelsea Pictures, Curious Pictures, HSI, Villains and Robot Films. She just returned from Berlin, where she judged at the Ciclope Festival of Film Craft.
