BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA — Following the partnership between 1stAveMachine and Tronco to launch 1stAveMachine Buenos Aires (https://1stave.ba), the new company has expanded its leadership team with the recent addition of executive producer Sabrina Elizondo. Formerly an EP at Timber, Elizondo brings a solution-orientated producing style. Her career includes time at WoodShop, Stardust, Brand New School, Arsenal FX, The Mill and Method. In her new role, she will act as an international liaison, increasing the visibility of 1stAve BA’s capabilities across mixed media, live-action and animation to the US market.
“After connecting with 1stAve BA, my little Latin heart fluttered in excitement at the opportunity of partnering with fresh Argentinian talent, not to mention the chance to perfect my Spanish,” explains Elizondo. “Each director on the roster has a uniquely remarkable voice and approach. Like me, they’re all driven to create great work and thrive upon developing lasting relationships during the artistic process. I look forward to further bridging the gap between the Buenos Aires office and US audiences.”
1stAve BA partner and director Tomi Dieguez adds, “Sabrina’s perfect for the job. If you give her the right tools, she could land a spaceship on the moon. Most importantly, she has the experience to seamlessly translate agency language into colorful pixel language, so to speak. As animation continues to surge, I can’t think of anyone better than Sabrina to represent the best of what the Buenos Aires production scene has to offer — from our skill sets and workflows to identities and culture — to the US.”
