Ian Graham will lead the new outpost, which will open in early 2020, as Chief Creative Director, focusing on creative leadership and long-term content strategy for the new studio.
Ian will spearhead a development slate for original production working with local and international talent and will help supervise pre-production teams for both original and client service work.
He brings more than 20 years’ in animation to the role, as a highly regarded storyboard artist, director, animator, producer and storyteller. Previously he’s worked on hits including SpongeBob SquarePants, Family Guy and Invader Zim.
“We are delighted to be working with Ian in his new role as Chief Creative Director for our LA Studio,” says Barbara Stephen, CEO Flying Bark Productions. “We share Ian’s passion for producing quality animation and working with a diverse mix of creative talent and highly value his experience and commitment to the industry.
