French animation studio Millimages is reinforcing its commercial team with the addition of a new Senior Sales Manager and Producer, Sépideh Shirazi-Moayed. In her new position, she will aid in propelling the French animation studio's success by focusing on the production of new series on major VOD platforms such as Netflix, iTunes and Amazon. She will also be a key player in enhancing exposure on linear and non-linear channels in territories such as North America, the United Kingdom, Germany and the Middle East, among others.
Initially hailing from a law background, it was her love for animation that led her to pursue a master’s degree in Audiovisual Marketing and Distribution. From that point on, Sépideh’s career quickly evolved from Programming and Acquisitions Coordinator at major French channels Canal J and Tiji (previously owned by the Lagardère Group), to Acquisitions, Compliance and Productions Manager at The Walt Disney Company in France.
“I am very excited to join one of the most established independent animation studios in Europe that develops, produces and distributes high quality family entertainment worldwide. I am confident that my background in acquisitions will provide me with the right tools to lead Millimages’ commercial activities to new dimensions,” said Shirazi-Moayed.
"We are thrilled to welcome Sépideh to the Millimages team. She will play a pivotal role in maximising the potential of our existing and future commercial success," commented Roch Lener, CEO of Millimages.
