Dallas-based design studio ATK PLN has added Kent Zambrana as senior producer. Zambrana has over a decade of experience in production, overseeing teams of artists working on live action, animation and design projects. Over the years, he has worked at a number of creative shops across the agency and production sides of the business where he developed media campaigns for omni-channel video ecosystems, interactive projects and future tech.
Adds Zambrana, “ATK PLN’s offerings across design, animation and live action fit nicely within my skill set. I’m looking forward to leveraging my production expertise and direct-to-brand and agency perspectives to better serve their clients and continue to grow their offerings.”
Zambrana, who studied radio, television and film at the University of Texas in Austin, started his pro career in Los Angeles, where he spent four years producing work across The Simpsons properties, including the television series, theme park ride, digital platforms and promotional campaigns. He brought that experience with him and returned to Texas where the became a supervising producer at Invodo, building out the video content library of the startup’s digital video platform. He then landed as head of production, producing animation, live action, 2D and 3D work. When the company was acquired by Industrial Color in 2018, he led both the Dallas and Austin offices as senior director of production before joining The Marketing Arm to lead their in-house production shop.
How does Zambrana relax? He can be found rehearsing, recording and performing with his indie pop band, Letting Up Despite Great Faults.
