Toronto-based animation house Arc Productions, recently acquired by a Canadian ownership group from Starz Media, has hired Stephanie Denton to head its Los Angles office as senior VP of sales and business development.
Prior to joining Arc, Denton accrued 24 years of experience many of them as president of international sales and distribution for leading independents such as Bold Films, Lionsgate, Initial Entertainment Group and Lakeshore International.
“This is a great opportunity to join the Arc Productions team,” Denton said. “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.”
“Stephanie’s appointment in conjunction with the company’s recent decision to engage Paradigm to represent the company again demonstrates our aggressive growth strategy,” said Jeff Young, president and COO of Arc.
