PRG XL Video, the UK operation of Production Resource Group (PRG), is excited to announce two new additions to its music team. Robert Watson and Michael George have both joined as account managers, bringing a diverse range of talent and experience to the business.
Michael George has joined the company from Blink TV where he specialised in the filming and streaming of live events. An area that PRG XL intends to expand into, beginning with the live streaming of Stormzy’s recent sold-out Brixton Academy shows.
Michael’s expertise in this field builds on PRG XL’s existing video, broadcast, and live recording capabilities, offering clients new services including social media streaming, and video clip compilations. Michael also brings with him an extensive network of contacts in the field of content creation and editing.
Stefaan Michels, director of music, PRG XL Video, comments: “It’s a pleasure to have Michael join the team. He’s great to work with. It is exciting to expand into the live streaming market and with Michael’s expertise and high standard of delivery, it’s sure to be a resounding success.”
Robert Watson brings more than a decade of experience in live production, working as both a project manager and crew chief on several high-profile music festivals, designing lighting for theatre and concerts, and most recently working as a project manager at Panalux Broadcast & Event.
Robert’s expertise expands PRG XL’s WYSIWIG and design capabilities to the team, along with extensive knowledge of the latest lighting and video technology being used for state-of-the-art music and live event shows.
Yvonne Donnelly Smith, director of music, PRG XL Video, comments: “I’m delighted to welcome Rob to the team. His in-depth technical knowledge and on-site experience of delivering shows is a great benefit to us. Additionally, Rob’s personality complements the rest of the team, and he’s already fitted in well!”
Both Michael and Robert are based in PRG XL’s central London office, near Covent Garden.
