Anne And Brad Globe to receive Creative Vision Award

Top Entertainment Execs Selected by Otis College of Art and Design
Award Presented at Spring 2008 Gala in Beverly Hills

LOS ANGELES, CA (February 14, 2008) – Citing creativity as the sustaining force of the 21st century, Samuel Hoi, President of Otis College of Art and Design today announced the recipients of the annual Otis Creative Vision Award. The 2008 honorees are Anne Globe of DreamWorks Animation and Brad Globe of Warner Bros. Consumer Products.

”The Creative Vision Award is given to individuals and companies whose creative and entrepreneurial vision has captured the spirit of the times and set a benchmark for the future,” said Hoi. “Anne and Brad Globe have established themselves as two of the foremost entertainment marketing, licensing and merchandising executives in the film industry.”

Anne Globe heads Worldwide Marketing and Consumer Products for DreamWorks Animation, where she is responsible for overseeing marketing, brand planning and promotion for all DreamWorks properties. Since joining DreamWorks in 1996, she has established and implemented all merchandising and promotional campaigns for DreamWorks' event films, including last year's Shrek the Third, which set the all-time record opening weekend for an animated film, The Bee Movie, which, like seven other DreamWorks Animation films, enjoyed a reign as the number-one film at the North American box office and Shrek, which won the first-ever Academy Award® for Best Animated Feature in 2002. Globe was most recently featured on the cover of the Hollywood Reporter's "Women in Hollywood" special issue, in which she was ranked among the top 30 of the 100 most influential women in Hollywood. She was also recognized by Promo Magazine as one of the Best Marketers of the Year in 2001. She graduated from Syracuse University with a B.S. in Marketing and a B.S. in Communications.

Brad Globe, one of the entertainment industry’s most experienced and well-respected consumer products executives, is President of Warner Bros. Worldwide Consumer Products. Warner Bros. Consumer Products represents some of the most highly-regarded entertainment franchises in the world of licensing, including Looney Tunes, Harry Potter, Scooby-Doo and DC Comics’ Superman and Batman, among many others. Prior to coming to Warner Bros. Consumer Products in 2005, Brad Globe headed the consumer products business for DreamWorks SKG. Globe joined Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment in 1983 and when Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg and David Geffen formed DreamWorks in 1994, he launched the Consumer Products division there.

“We are very excited that this dynamic couple has agreed to serve as the 2008 Benefit Honorees,” continued Hoi. “Their decision is, in large part, due to their respect for Otis supporter and former Trustee Dan Romanelli, who founded Warner Bros. Consumer Products and is highly regarded within the industry.”

Previous Otis Creative Vision awardees are Jacque Hall and Paul Fitzpatrick of Macy’s (2007), Joseph Abboud, Cirque du Soleil and Roxy (2006), Mindy Grossman and Peter Kolsky of Nike, Inc. (2005), Roger Williams of Warnaco Swimwear Group and Susan Crank of Lunada Bay Corporation (2004), Tim Kilpin of The Walt Disney Company (2003), Matt Bousquette of Mattel, Richard Baker of Op and Linda Platzner of Primedia (2002), actor/artist Dennis Hopper, sculptor Robert Graham and swimwear designer Anne Cole (2001), Max Azria of BCBG (2000), Bob McKnight of Quiksilver (1999), Todd Oldham and Dan Romanelli of Warner Bros. Consumer Products (1998), and Michael Gould of Bloomingdale’s (1997).

Anne and Brad Globe will be presented with the Otis Creative Vision Award at the annual Otis Scholarship Benefit on May 3rd at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Over 1000 leaders in entertainment, fashion, business and finance, society patrons, press, celebrities, students, alumni and other supporters are expected to attend the gala. This annual event is the College's largest fundraiser, grossing over $1 million in scholarships for art and design students.
