WE TELL THEIR STORIES

Team

WE ARE AUTHENTICA

A former aspiring music composer, pianist and audio engineer, Robin’s artistic focus now drives the creative process for the 60+ projects we deliver every year. As our most seasoned producer, Robin adds vision and strategy to ensure each project hits the mark. But don’t be fooled – under that responsible façade lies a former FM radio DJ whose band once battled Van Halen to play the high school dance.

Robin Lewin

Executive Producer / Creative Director

Don’t let her quaint Texas charm fool you. Beryt is our Emmy-winning secret weapon who ensures we’ll get the real-deal authentic story from everyone she interviews on camera. A look at her ever-expanding Facebook network shows her love of people and their stories. In fact, she’s always been a storyteller, starting back at age 10 producing segments for WXYZ-PDQ, her very own pretend radio station.

Beryt Nisenson

Vice-President / Supervising Producer

Mix experience, passion and quick-study ability to put the mark on Chip, our “been there, done that” producer. Chip has worked for some of TV’s best including the History Channel, Dr. Phil, and Unsolved Mysteries—shows that taught him how to work quickly and efficiently. Chip’s also our resident beekeeper, vowing to keep the honey bee population thriving in the Hollywood Hills.

Chip Clements

Producer

If you threw an editor, musician, sound mixer, MBA and a pinch of pepper into a pot, and stirred it for 20 years, you’d have Robert. His skills put the fine polish on everything we turn out, and his industry blog addiction keeps us at the leading edge of production technology. When he’s not staring at a vectorscope, he’s playing keys in a funk band or working on his next album.

Robert Bowlus

Director of Post-Production / Sr. Editor

Andrew enjoys setting graphics in motion almost as much as he enjoys your brand standards. He is the post-production department’s Swiss army knife; wearing whatever hat is needed, from editorial to motion graphics design. His time off is spent taste-testing new craft beers, brushing cat hair off his upholstery and seeking inspiration from LA’s many art museums.

Andrew Kellogg

Motion Graphics / Junior Editor

From a young age, Chloe knew she wanted two things; a pony and a career in media. Running around with a camcorder, she would direct movies starring her friends. In high school, her hobby turned a profit when she starting recording live events. In college, her childhood goals were fully realized when she was accepted into the Savannah College of Art and Design. There she studied post production while representing the school on horseback as part of the equestrian team. At Authentica, her broad skill set allows her to fill in wherever necessary, keeping our post department running at full gallop.

Chloe Heidt

Asst. Editor

Nancy has supported our team since the day we opened our doors, keeping the business running smoothly. That’s quite a task, considering keeping our creatives in line is like herding cats—seriously. But Nancy gets it done with accuracy and a smile. A native Philadelphian by way of New York, these days she feels at home living a car-free life in foot-friendly Westwood.
