ArtClass joins a collective of production, post, and VFX talent represented by SG+Partners, led by Sarah Gitersonke, who launched the agency in 2017 after working in the Chicago production scene as a producer and executive producer for more than a decade.
“ArtClass is unlike any other company in our industry,” says Gitersonke. “As a next-gen content studio, so many of their directors are heavily integrated with animation, graphics, and VFX, that their roster brings a total sense of energy and relatability. I’m so thrilled to bring ArtClass aboard and have another company that’s equally committed to pushing the needle on diversity and inclusion as evident with their five brilliant female directors. There is such a need for their fresh perspective in the Midwest; I can’t wait to pair these artists with the agency creatives who’ve been dreaming of them but didn’t know where to look.”
“Sarah brings a deep passion for our craft and a fresh approach to nurturing creative opportunities,” adds Jack Strachan, ArtClass EP / Head of Sales. “Her vast market knowledge and methodology on how to position the dynamic, diverse, and multifaceted company that is ArtClass immediately aligned with ours, and we knew, even before we made it official, that SG+Partners was the right choice.”
Founded in 2018 by Imbriale and Director Vincent Peone, ArtClass is a next-gen production company specializing in traditional commercials, shorts, and branded content. Its team of internet-born creators and heavy-hitting producers means it can effortlessly shift between large-scale shoots and jobs that require more nimble production approaches — all with artistry at the forefront.
