“Powered by grit, aiming for greatness, and always with grace, Earl Guico led a revolution in the Philippine production industry. A defiance he called Elesi Studios. Under Earl’s people-first leadership, game-changing production methods and strategies, Elesi carved itself a new niche in the country’s production scene; becoming the first movers in tech-enabled digital-first productions in the PH.
With ‘innovations at scale’, including the integration of generative AI to the production workstream and push for platform-native editing, he thrilled clients locally and across Southeast Asia —delivering volume, variety, velocity and value in all their outputs. This resulted in more than double topline business growth, organic growth, triple the direct award growth and a 100% client renewal rate for Elesi Studios.
Earl’s body of work shows us glimpses of an unstoppable, innovative, production trailblazer; proving that in the digital landscape, there’s also a place for a young prod house at the vanguard.”
