Creative company Imaginary Forces has added executive producer Chris Hill to its Los Angeles studio. Recent work of note at Imaginary Forces, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, includes main titles for Netflix’s summer blockbuster Stranger Things; the logo reveal for Michael Bay’s Transformers: The Last Knight--Paramount’s biggest trailer debut ever; and a one-of-a-kind immersive experience for the Empire State Building.
Hill’s diverse production experience includes commercials, experience design, entertainment marketing and branding for such clients as HBO Sports, Google, A&E, and the Jacksonville Jaguars. He joins Imaginary Forces after recently presiding over the broadcast division of award-winning entertainment marketing agency bpg.
Hill climbed the ranks at Digital Kitchen in Chicago early in his career. From business development to producing, he led the entire lifecycle of a variety of commercial, broadcast, and experiential jobs for clients, including Microsoft, Reese’s, and Coors Light. In 2011, he expanded his talents to the realm of sports marketing and branding at LA-based agency Troika, where he led accounts, such as HBO Sports, A&E, NBC Sports, and Golf Channel in major rebranding initiatives. In addition, he produced special projects for the Jacksonville Jaguars, Charlotte Hornets, and EA Sports during his four-year tenure at Troika.
“Imaginary Forces has a proven ability to use amazing design and storytelling across any medium or industry,” said Hill. “To me, that’s really powerful and exciting, and we can expand that ability to new markets, whether it’s emerging technologies, original content, or sports franchises. When you consider, for example, the investment in massive screens and new technologies in stadiums across the country, it demands the same high level of brand strategy and visual storytelling that our film and TV clients have valued for decades.”
