Ti­tle: VP of Con­tent, An­i­ma­tion, Dig­i­tal & Ac­qui­si­tions, Dis­ney Chan­nels EMEA Time at Job: 10 years. How did you get your first job in the biz? I worked for free on the crew of a short film called The Big Bowl­ing Ball run­ning ca­bles and set­ting up lights in a bowl­ing al­ley. What do you hope you’ll see at the mar­ket? Peo­ple pitch­ing fresh, orig­i­nal ideas from tal­ented artists, in­stead of gim­micky high-con­cept mashups. Big­gest Red Flag when some­one is pitch­ing you: I get wor­ried if the pitch in­volves cos­tumes, py­rotech­nics, an­i­mals, bowl­ing balls or ac­tual red flags. Fa­vorite show of the mo­ment: Big City Greens. New an­noy­ing trend in the biz: Pro­duc­ers who think they’re cre­ators. And those tire­some por­tals to other di­men­sions. Which an­i­mated char­ac­ter would you love to meet and why? Cruella De Vil. Some­one needs to talk to her about the fur thing. I’m sure I have seen her on the Croisette! Best pop cul­ture mo­ment of 2018? Black Pan­ther. Fa­vorite drink: Cit­ron pressé.
