Power Automedia is excited to announce recent expansions to its editorial team and video production team, Alloy Studios.
Nicole James relocated from Arizona to join the growing editorial department at the beginning of the year, joining the team as the Editor of Power Automedia’s Street Muscle Magazine. James brings with her a plethora of journalism and social media marketing experience, including background with a multitude of automotive journalism companies as well as degrees in journalism and social media.
“Nicole is the epitome of a modern magazine editor, fluent in all forms of digital media and how to actively engage the reader,” said Scott Parker, Power Automedia Director of Content and Strategy. “She is as proficient with a camera as she is with writing, editing and social media. In no time at all she has injected fresh ideas and a fresh perspective on Street Muscle, and I can’t wait to see what she can do.”
Along with a number of new and exciting ventures, Alloy Studios has welcomed Brian Petty as Lead Scriptwriter/Talent. Petty will be the face of Power Automedia’s upcoming Horsepower Wars, many in-house editorial style videos, and occasional white label client videos. His background includes extensive experience in newscasting, degrees specializing in journalism and automotive tech, as well as a lifetime of automotive enthusiasm.
“Brian affords our production house a versatile combination of talents,” said Andrew Almazan, Power Automedia Operations Director. “His love for storytelling, passion for the automobile, and being an on-screen persona make for a truly unique creative process. Brian’s intuition and involvement throughout production phases will mean consistency and a high level of execution time and time again.”
For 10 years now, our video production team has been building beautiful content for the automotive industry. Recently rebranded Alloy Studios, our team continues their passion for building efficient and effective videos of every flavor.
In a constant search for talent, we have recently expanded our team to include two new members; Greg Myracle, as a Producer, and Matthew Robinson, as a Videographer. Myracle has put his organizational and video skills to use, managing and coordinating dozens of shoots for some of the most prestigious names in the automotive aftermarket industry, while Robinson works on the front lines and behind-the-scenes to create this incredible content
“Alloy Studios provides an amazing work environment,” said Robinson. “I love the different experiences the position has provided me thus far. My favorite aspect of the role is definitely having the ability to travel– I like the fact that I’m not always contained to a desk. I get to go interact with many of our clients on a face-to-face basis.”
Our team’s expertise doesn’t stop at producing videos for their in-house editorial team and automotive clients, either. They get to take part in broadcasting some of the largest drag racing events in the country for our sister company speedvideo.com.
We’ve also got some new gear, too — we are now able to live broadcast in high-definition 4K and capture new, exciting, aerial angles with our 4K ultra-HD drone!
Some of the team’s latest projects:
