Boulder-based commercial production company and content creation studio, La Storia Productions, has welcomed acclaimed Filmmaker, Director, and Editing powerhouse Thomas Torrey, to their award-winning team to serve as the company’s new Head of Post Production.
This alignment signifies a time of growth and expansion for La Storia, following a strong partnership with Torrey over the past decade. Torrey was first introduced to La Storia when he met Co-Founder, RC Walker, on-set in 2015. Walker served as the Director of Photography on Torrey’s first feature film, the ride-share thriller “Fare”. Since then, Walker and Torrey have collaborated on a variety of projects under the La Storia umbrella for notable clients including Lamborghini, Moen, Kokopelli, and Seagate.
Originally from South Windsor, Connecticut, Torrey has been working fulltime in the film and television industry since graduating from Sarah Lawrence College with a Liberal Arts degree and Filmmaking focus. In 2012, Torrey accepted the role of VP of Short Form Programming for INSP Television, where he created and oversaw the prestigious and decorated Moments.org initiative, producing a prolific slate of inspirational short films over a three-year period. In 2015, Thomas leaned into his passion for independent filmmaking and co-launched the feature film production company Bad Theology, which he still manages today.
In addition to his Department head role at La Storia, Torrey will continue his work making narrative feature films. Torrey is currently wrapping up post-production on his third feature film project, a musical drama expected to premiere in 2023.
“I’ve been lucky enough to get to know Thomas over the past decade through more projects than I can count, and twice as many adventures along the way. When two filmmakers are let loose in the streets of Amsterdam, or have to squeeze themselves into a rental car with a whole mess of camera gear for a 3-night shoot, they tend to get beyond the pleasantries and small talk pretty quickly,” recounts Founder and Head of Creative RC Walker. What became apparent then, and has stayed true ever since, is that Thomas’s unique creative perspective, humble transparency, and genuine love for our craft, aligned with the spirit of La Storia in a way that only rarely comes around. “La Storia doesn’t fit into the box of your traditional production company,” RC goes on to say. “Our interests are varied and weird in the best kind of way, and the same goes for our team. We like a good challenge, don’t pay too much attention to boundaries, and love to work with clients that color outside of the lines. There are few people that fit into that mix better, or more effortlessly, than Thomas. His passion and skills for both film and commercial work is something all of us at La Storia have always respected. So we’re more than excited to have him join the team in this new role, and push us all to grow and serve our clients in new ways.”
Torrey is looking forward to a hybrid model of dedicated commercial and feature projects in the months and years to come. “La Storia has always stood out as a production company doing things differently,” says Torrey. “Not only do they produce impactful content for so many worthy brands, but they’re some of my favorite creative collaborators who believe in supporting the relationships that come from those collaborations. So I’m excited to be a part of the team and am humbled by their support to continue pursuing my feature work,” Torrey states.
Some people make everything a little brighter; La Storia is fortunate to have yet another one.
