We can’t get enough of Luke Carroll’s amazing work (have you seen The Willoughbys yet?!), so we’ve added the industry veteran to the Relish family in the newly created role of SVP, Animation. He’ll be based out of our recently opened Vancouver Island, BC animation headquarters. He’ll also work to develop an original slate of feature films for our sister company — Wasabi Entertainment.
In addition to producing The Willoughbys, Netflix’s first original CG feature, he produced Escape From Planet Earth for The Weinstein Company as well asBron Animation’s first animated feature Henchmen. Prior to joining Bron as VP of Production & Development, Luke produced numerous feature-length projects for Mattel Inc.
“Relish has such an impressive track record in combining great creative with the latest technology,” Luke said. “To be able to apply this knowledge to a slate of wildly exciting animated feature films is an unbelievable opportunity. The fact that we get to do this on Vancouver Island is beyond incredible.”
We couldn’t be more thrilled either!
“We’re delighted to have Luke join the team,” Relish and Wasabi CEO Paul Pattison said. “Not only will his experience producing animated features prove invaluable, but we share a common vision for building an artist-driven studio that puts story first while also pushing technical boundaries. We want to capture imaginations, touch hearts, and tell unforgettable stories that will inspire a new generation.”
Welcome Luke! We can’t wait to show you all what he and the team are working on!
