Creative content company Alkemy X has significantly ramped up its creative ranks through two major moves. First, Alkemy X has entered into a joint venture with multidisciplinary studio Quietman. In addition, Alkemy X has brought on director/creative director Megan Oepen.
The Quietman deal will see founder/creative director Johnnie Semerad moving the operations of his company into Alkemy X, where both parties will share all creative talent, resources and capabilities. Semerad co-founded Quietman in 1996 as a Flame-based visual effects company. Since then, it has expanded into the full gamut of production and post-production services, producing more than 100 Super Bowl spots, and earning a Cannes Grand Prix, two Emmy Awards, and many other honors along the way.
Alkemy X is also teaming up with Megan Oepen, an award-winning creative director and live-action director with 20 years of broadcast, sports, and consumer brand campaign experience. Some of her notable clients include Google, the NBA, MLB, PGA, NASCAR, Dove Beauty, Gatorade, Sprite, ESPN, Delta Air Lines, Home Depot, Regal Cinemas, Chick-Fil-A, and Yahoo! Sports. Oepen was formerly the executive producer and director for Red Bull’s non-live/long format productions group and headed Under Armour’s Content House. She was also the creator behind Under Armour Originals. In addition to being a featured director on Free the Bid, Oepen has presented at conferences around the world speaking about creativity, content creation, and the evolution of digital media.
