Pixel Brother Andrew Ryann now working solo

Pixel Brothers is one “brother” short with the split last month of partner Andrew Ryann, who left the company he helped found six years ago to return to his roots: producing corporate and commercial packages.

Working under the banner of MotoMedia, Ryann is helping produce and direct a major corporate project for his long-time client, the Wrigley Co.

“I’m still functioning at Pixel and trying to bring work into the company,” says Ryann, who retains his shares in the company. “But with the company going through a rebuilding period, this seemed a good time for me to work on my own again.”

While it’s liberating and frightening to run a solo business, at the same time, Ryann says, “I’m confident work will come in. I’ve gone through the hassle of setting up my company and now I’m reconnecting with my clients.”

Ryan says he is working out of his apartment and also at Pixel Brothers’ facility, where he is editing the many segments of video that will be integrated into Wrigley Co.’s Jan. 27 Global Innovation Awards ceremonies at the Palmer House.

Working with him on the show is Malory Sohmer, a former Pixel employee who had been a producer/AP on the Wrigley business.
