Paula

Paula Moreno

Head of Productions

Paula Moreno has earned a place in the forefront of new producers within international cinema. Her 2010 feature film IJE, The Journey, has broken records in the Nigerian film industry, becoming the No 1-grossing film of all time for Nollywood. When IJE was released, it out-grossed both "Shrek Forever" and "Inception" in the West African film market. The project has made Moreno the first Hispanic producer to establish credentials in Nollywood.

Moreno produced, wrote and directed her first film in 2004, a short titled Planet Far Away, for which she won awards for best director and best writer at a Tokyo film event. She followed that success with more award-winning films, the short, Lost Lives - and the feature length, Maquillaje.

Her passion for social justice was developed during her 12 years as a case manager and public relations manager at a California law firm. Drawing on that experience, she partnered with a notable criminal defense attorney to produce a series of documentaries examining the lives of death row inmates. She also has worked closely with Emmy Award-winning and Humanitas Award-nominated writer director Micki Dickoff on the documentary The Legacy: From Gary Graham to Shaka Sankofa.

In addition to her film experience, Paula has produced numerous commercials and written numerous commercial jingles for radio. She is also the marketing director for the 3D animated feature The Greatest Miracle, or, El Gran Milagro to be released in the fall of 2011.

Garo Satin

Head of Trailer Production Services

“Passionate about putting the Unreal on the big screen”

Growing up in Longmeadow Massachusetts, Garo knew at a very early age that he was destined for the entertainment world. By age 9 he was working with stop motion animation and shooting his own Super 8 films with homemade clay creatures. Keeping in step with the latest filmmaking technology, Garo started using a reel-to-reel editing system to perfect the art of narrative storytelling.

Through middle school and high School he worked at the local public access television station where he learned how to edit utilizing linear 3/4inch video tape decks. Garo went on to produce over a hundred television shows including an episodic “Twilight Zone” style show entitled “Valley of the Shadows” which would air for many years on the station, as well as additional public access stations across the country. Garo would also cut all his own promos and trailers, something he took great pride in as he had studied trailers voraciously. Over those years he collected 40 plus hours of movie trailers on VHS tapes that he would watch over and over again.

With his established skills and love for film, Garo was accepted to the prestigious New York University Film School. While at NYU, Garo studied all aspects of film, with a key focus on narrative storytelling, animation and editorial work.

After receiving his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from NYU, he was accepted into the University of Southern California’s School of Cinema-Television. While at USC, Garo wrote, produced and directed several short films that resulted in industry awards and recognition. After graduation, with a Master of Fine Arts degree in film production, Garo was ready to make his mark in the entertainment world.

“My love for trailer production comes from knowing how a successful trailer builds the audience anticipation!”

Garo sold one of his screenplays but ultimately found steady work in advertising where he would edit director’s reels for a commercial production company. From there he moved on to an ad agency, Deutsch, where he embarked on a personal mission of mastering the art of non-linear editing. He would later take those skills to various post houses where he would freelance on all sorts of editing projects including commercials and on air television promos. But his primary focus became on his other childhood passion, movie trailers.

After a long stint of editing television promos for Studio City, Garo was hand selected in 2003 to work with Artisan Entertainment editing trailers for home entertainment.

At the end of 2003, Lionsgate acquired Artisan Entertainment. Recognizing the talent in Garo, Lionsgate promptly made the decision to bring Garo onto the Lionsgate team, with a focus on editing and producing trailers. To this date, Garo remains at Lionsgate and has edited over 240 trailers and television spots for nationwide distribution. His trailers have received sixteen Golden Trailer Nominations and three wins. Some of his recent work includes The Last Stand, The Haunting in Connecticut 2, and television spots for Leprechaun Origins and Nurse 3D.

Garo knows and understands how a trailer must compel the potential audience to see the movie. His trailer experience ranges through every genre, making him truly one of the most diverse writer, director, producers of trailers that will drive audience engagement. For him, it’s not just a job. It’s a genuine passion.
