Animation and visual effects studio Bent Image Lab, headquartered in Portland, Oregon, has signed Yvette Lubinsky of Yvette Represents as its new West Coast rep. She brings with her over 20 years of industry experience representing clients in this area of the country.
Lubinksy started her career at an advertising agency, working her way up to a broadcast producer position. Lubinsky says she focuses on new ideas and opportunities for the companies she represents, such as seeking out content development for any screen not just commercials for TV.
Currently Bent is represented by Blah! Blah? (Blah…) on the East Coast, Hesty Reps in Canada and Tribe United in Asia.
In other recent news, Bent has expanded, opening offices in New York in May and Cadiz, Spain in January.
Regarding the New York office, Bent’s executive producer Ray Di Carlo says, “Bent has traditionally been a commercial and visual effects company, but we have recently been focusing on some incredible new digital technology. We have always done a lot of production out of NY and have been traveling to the city for meetings and live action shoots for years. With our expansion into cutting-edge digital media and augmented reality, we felt the time was right to open a local office.”
Their studio in Spain seemed like a natural progression for them. “We have always done a lot of international work and wanted to expand our production services base to Europe,”
explains DiCarlo. “When the opportunity to start a Bent Europe office with creative director Javier Leon, formally of Vando Studios, came along, we couldn’t pass it up.”
