Two of our more recent hires, Meredith Branham and Jon Wadley, are tremendous creative department additions whose work has garnered a great deal of acclaim among JKR’s client base. As you’ll see from reading their profiles, their experience and skill sets have further enhanced our in-house abilities. If you are a client of ours, chances are you’ve either seen or heard some of their work.
Meredith Branham, Production Manager: You may recognize Meredith from any number of places, as she has previously worked with JKR for about four years as a freelance talent before coming to work for us full-time. She’s also appeared in numerous other commercials, movies and television shows, including commercials for Zaxby’s, Credit Karma, Bealls, TGIFridays, Budweiser and Michelob; the movie Sydney White; and TV shows Forensic Files and Magic City.
“I am fortunate. I get to do what I love every day,” Meredith said. “I have a passion for film and television, and I really enjoy immersing myself in my job.” She’s the quintessential Swiss Army Knife in the production department, as she wears many hats. Her duties include being one of JKR’s most popular spokesmodels, organizing and scheduling shoots, recording voiceovers – and even shopping for props when necessary.
Jon Wadley, Audio Mixer/Composer/Voiceover: Jon got his start in the business in the 1990s as a sound mixer at NBC in Los Angeles. He worked in and around LA for years mixing promos, trailers, commercials, and all kinds of film projects. For JKR, he’s a voice talent, jingle writer/composer, and post-production sound editor.
“While working with the top voice talents in the business, I decided to give voiceover a try because, as a singer and musician, I already knew what to do,” Jon said. “I did a demo, got an agent, and since then I’ve been the national voice for Carfax, Friendly’s, Dr. Pepper, Church’s Chicken and more. One of Jon’s songs is featured prominently in a National Lampoon movie called Adam and Eve. He and his band have performed at major venues across California.
