Award-winning producer and director Elliott Halpern has truly done and seen it all, and with a broad spectrum of programming under his belt, yap’s president is continuously pushing the envelope in all genres including history, science, reality, and adventure.
As yap’s director of development and executive producer on multiple films and series, Elizabeth is a creative mastermind whose light bulb never turns off. She’s constantly churning out new ideas for programming.
Elliott and Elizabeth
Elliott and Elizabeth run the shop at yap. From creation to execution, they’re our fearless leaders that make it all happen. Look out for them at your nearest television conference (and don’t be shy, come say hi!).
As yap’s business affairs manager, this no-nonsense gal can get projects up and running faster than her Harley. Her knowledge of international treaty co-productions, tax credits and funding incentives has kept us on top of the game for over a decade.
As yap’s controller, Sam is the man with the financial plan. He’s been expertly managing yap’s finances for over a decade, and rumor is he can calculate the square root of any number in under a second flat (although he’ll deny it if you ask him).
Yap’s development coordinator is Elizabeth’s trusty sidekick, researching and writing treatments for new ideas. The crack development team is always looking for the next big story to break to the masses.
Yap’s post-production supervisor is so on top of his edit suites, his name might as well be “Final Cut” Freedman. With his team of editorial whizzes, this cityslickin’ cowboy is always confident he can “fix it in post”.
Anja, yap’s head of production, makes sure that every production runs as seamlessly as possible and can handle any challenge that comes her way. With an excellent track record, the proof is in the pudding.
As yap’s assistant coordinator, Jordan is always on the move. Faster than the speed of light, he’s a multitasker extraordinaire and a jack-of-all-trades.
