The Jim Henson Company Hires Jason Lust as Senior Vice President of Feature Films
The Jim Henson Company has hired Jason Lust as Senior Vice President, Feature Films.
In his new role, Lust will oversee and expand the company’s film development slate by continuing to pursue strategic creative partners as well as tap into the company’s dedicated development fund for optioning existing properties, such as children’s books, comics and video games. In addition to developing live action features, he will also focus on animated projects (including Let It Rain at Fox Studios and Game Over at Warner Bros.) that can either be produced with third parties or created internally to take advantage of the company’s proprietary real-time animation technology — HDPS (the Henson Digital Performance System).
Lust will report directly to company CO-CEO Lisa Henson.
