Arc Pro­duc­tions

Arc Pro­duc­tions, Canada’s lead­ing CG-animation and visual effects stu­dio, has hired Stephanie Den­ton to head its Los Ange­les office as senior vice-president of sales and busi­ness development.

For­merly known as Starz Ani­ma­tion Toronto, Arc Pro­duc­tions was recently acquired by a Cana­dian own­er­ship group from Starz Media US. Starz remains a minor­ity share­holder in the Toronto-based car­toon maker.

The stu­dio ani­mated Gnomeo & Juliet for Mira­max Films and Elton John’s Rocket Pictures.

Denton’s respon­si­bil­i­ties will include try­ing to get more Hol­ly­wood stu­dios to bring their projects to Arc so that they can find up-front cost sav­ings from local film and dig­i­tal tax credits.

We are thrilled to have Stephanie join our team. Her knowl­edge of the fea­ture film busi­ness is excep­tional,” Jeff Young, pres­i­dent and chief oper­at­ing offi­cer of the 3D ani­ma­tion stu­dio, said Monday.

Her back­ground in domes­tic and inter­na­tional dis­tri­b­u­tion, inde­pen­dent film financ­ing, and cre­ative devel­op­ment will be a tremen­dous asset to the com­pany. Stephanie’s appoint­ment’ in con­junc­tion with the company’s recent deci­sion to engage Par­a­digm to rep­re­sent the com­pany’ again demon­strates our aggres­sive growth strat­egy,” he added.

This is a great oppor­tu­nity to join the Arc Pro­duc­tions team. The stu­dio has an amaz­ing artis­tic tal­ent base that has estab­lished itself as a world-class ser­vice stu­dio for both ani­ma­tion and VFX. In addi­tion to grow­ing the ser­vice busi­ness, I am excited to be a part of Arc’s ini­tia­tive to enter the intel­lec­tual prop­erty busi­ness,” Den­ton said.

Before join­ing Arc Pro­duc­tions, Den­ton accrued 24 years of expe­ri­ence, many of them as pres­i­dent of inter­na­tional sales and dis­tri­b­u­tion for such lead­ing inde­pen­dents as Bold Films, Lion­s­gate, Ini­tial Enter­tain­ment Group and Lakeshore International.
