IMAGES Recruits Past Disney Acquisitions Manager to Reinforce Sales Team

Sépideh Shirazi-Moayed, past Disney Acquisitions Manager, joins the ranks of Millimages to catapult its commercial success to new heights

Leading French animation studio MILLIMAGES, producer of bestselling animated series such as MOLANG, LOUIE, MOUK and PIRATA AND CAPITANO, is reinforcing its commercial team with the addition of a new Senior Sales Manager and Producer, Sépideh Shirazi-Moayed. The past Disney Acquisitions Manager will be continuing her prolific career in the audiovisual world alongside Millimages.

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. Throughout her successful career, Sépideh also held roles such as Compliance Supervisor for Al Jazeera Children’s Channel, as well as Contracts Administrator for Canal Plus’ legal department. Sépideh’s years of experience working with the biggest names of the entertainment industry eventually led to her assuming a managing position at Disney. For over a decade, Sépideh oversaw Disney’s acquisitions and prospections in key local and international territories.

   “I ‘m 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 Sépideh.

In her new position at Millimages, Sépideh will aid in propelling the French animation studio’s success by focusing on the production of new series on major Video on Demand 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.

   “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,” said Roch Lener, CEO.
