London-based rental house Pixipixel has expanded its team with the appointment of Chris Youlton as a business development manager for cameras and Russ Greening as a senior lighting account handler, working on TV drama & film.
“We are very excited to welcome aboard Chris and Russ as new members of our friendly team. As an ex gaffer with many years of experience, Russ is a great addition to our long-form lighting department. Chris offers a wealth of industry knowledge and will concentrate on short-form camera hire for commercials and music videos,” said managing director Steve Knight.
Youlton began his new role at Pixipixel in February, with his position designed to draw upon his thirty years of experience in the sector, focusing on developing new relationships and equipping cinematographers with kit from Pixipixel’s extensive range of camera and lenses.
Greening joined the company in January. With wealth of experience from various previous roles as a best boy and a gaffer, he possesses in-depth knowledge of lighting and the latest LED products and will be able to offer technical advice and innovative solutions to gaffers, cinematographers and producers.
Greening said: “I am delighted to start this new exciting role. The company is highly regarded within the industry. I’ve always been impressed by Pixipixel and the team’s dedication to provide great client service to gaffers.”
