Created 02/21/2003 - 00:00
Paul Golden is onboard at Vinton Studios in Portland, Oregon to spearhead its commercial division as the new president of advertising. Golden's mandate is to encourage the advertising community to turn to Vinton Studios for its variety of abilities including CGI, cel animation, live-action and motion graphics. "I want to correct the general misperception that we're all about clay," said Golden. He also plans to emphasize the individual directors and their unique styles rather than the studio as a whole. Golden worked at Colossal Pictures in San Francisco, DreamQuest Images in Los Angeles and Broadcast Arts in New York City. Most recently he was an executive producer at Wild Brain. Golden replaces Zilpha Yost who departs Vinton Studios after 10 years for personal reasons. She may return to Vinton on a freelance basis. Vinton Studios has offices in Portland, Los Angeles and New York and is well known for its commercial characters including the California Raisins and the computer generated M&M's.
