Dictionary Films managing director Chris Rossiter today announced the promotion of Joe Kirkendall to the position of head of production. Based in Chicago, Joe has been a staff senior producer for the company since 2018.
According to Chris, Joe is the first formal head of production in the company’s 15-year history. In this new capacity, Joe will spearhead overall production strategy and project bidding, oversee freelance producers, and also partner in client relations, director scheduling, and creative processes.
“While we’ve always been extremely proud of the production value we and our directors deliver for our clients, our standards have risen to even higher levels thanks to Joe, along with our senior producer Cody McGuire and our production manager Lilly Hanson,” Chris began. “As project demands continue to expand, increasing Joe’s responsibilities in these areas is going to be a win-win for us, our clients, and our partners.”
A graduate of Indiana University and a staple of Chicago film production for nearly 20 years, Joe spent seven years freelancing for Dictionary Films before coming onboard as a senior producer. His most recent credits include producing commercials for WeatherTech, Amazon, McDonald’s, PricewaterhouseCoopers, and Intel, to name but a few.
“Our roster of directors represents some of the best minds in the production business, and I love working for them all,” Joe began. “Of course, Cutters is widely recognised as a leader in creative post-production services, which is no surprise given the depth and breadth of its talents. Our goal is to operate a production arm of the same calibre. Seeing Dictionary Films rising to this challenge every day is extremely gratifying for us all.”
