David Lebensfeld, founder and president of Ingenuity Studios, has assumed the additional role of president of Ingenuity’s sister company Ghost VFX.
Together, both companies make up Streamland Media’s visual effects business. Streamland Media is also the parent company of post house Picture Shop, sound company Formosa Group and marketing unit Picture Head.
Ghost VFX — which has earned credits on titles such as Star Trek Discovery, The Mandalorian and Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes — maintains bases in various cities in North America and Europe, and is in the process of moving its Pune, India studio into a new facility. It was previously led by Patrick Davenport, who is no longer with the company.
Acquired by Streamland in 2022, Ingenuity Studios’ credits include One Piece, Hacks and Many Saints of Newark. It’s headquartered in Los Angeles and has locations in New York, Vancouver, London and Atlanta.
“Bringing these two incredible, talent-driven companies under single leadership will better serve our clients in the most efficient and strategic way,” said Streamland CEO Bill Romeo in a released statement. “David’s undeniable passion and creative vision will be a huge asset to our talented teams at Ghost VFX and Ingenuity Studios.”
