Stoopid Buddy Stoodios has announced that Jasmine Johnson has been appointed head of studio. In the newly created role, she will oversee production of the studio’s growing project slate and manage the day-to-day business. She will report directly to studio founders, Seth Green, John Harvatine IV, Matthew Senreich, and Eric Towner.
“Jasmine is a world-class executive whose leadership will help us grow and run the day-to-day operations of the studio,” commented Towner. “We look forward to working alongside her and are thrilled to welcome her to the Stoopid Buddy Stoodios team.”
Johnson, who most recently served as an original feature animation production executive at Netflix, has a proven track record of developing and growing animation studios. While at Netflix, she oversaw 15 feature films and specials in various mediums, including CG, 2D and stop-motion animation. During her tenure at Brazen Animation, she helped build the studio from the ground up as head of production. Her animation career began at Walt Disney Animation, where she was a member of the production team that launched the Fairies film franchise. Following her success at Disney, Johnson joined a quickly growing Reel FX where she produced short format, special venue, and ride film projects. She also worked on feature films including The Book of Life.
“I am inspired by the unique voices and artistry at Stoopid Buddy Stoodios,” remarked Johnson. “It is an exciting time to join our visionary leadership team.”
Stoopid Buddy Stoodios’ next release will be Marvel’s M.O.D.O.K, the highly anticipated series from creators Patton Oswalt and Jordan Blum. It will premiere on Hulu early next year and marks Marvel’s first endeavor into adult animation. In addition, the studio is currently in production on Season 11 of the Emmy Award-winning Robot Chicken; Season 2 of Crossing Swords for Hulu; Mega City Smiths for AMC; The Summoner for SYFY’s late-night adult animation block, TZGZ; and an untitled stop-motion holiday special for Fox, all of which will premiere in 2021.
