Tom Slattery

Playback Graphic Designer

Tom started working with Derek as early as 1998…but back then it was guitars and synthesizers, not Photoshop and After Effects. After many years of making music, then moving on to corporate graphics, they landed their first show, Leverage (TNT; 77 episodes 2008-2012). This led to many other shows and opportunities, and finally to Tom joining the TM team full time in 2015. Tom heads up team Scorpion (CBS) and also contributes graphics to many other shows and features.
