Agency vet Craig Alan Schoenbaum has joined Napoleon, the leading previz and digital content studio, as Sales Representative and will utilize his industry network to generate leads and sales and qualify new business prospects with a focus on art for storyboards and animatics.

Napoleon’s Art Studio is literally world class, with six in-house artists and an international stable of 40-plus illustrators. From traditional to digital illustration, the Studio can deliver whatever style or aesthetic is right for any project.

With the addition of Schoenbaum, Napoleon’s business development team expands to four, a reflection of Napoleon’s overall expansion into new products and services.

“It’s been a long time coming getting Craig on board here,” says Director of Business Development Paul Johnson. “I first met him five years ago as a producer at TBWA\Chiat\Day when we worked on Michelin together and he left a lasting impression. His production background coupled with his understanding of agency culture will make him a great asset to agency producers who need a reliable go-to guy to call on.”

Schoenbaum’s agency experience has enabled him to hit the ground running.

“I am simply loving life at Napoleon,” he says. “It was a great place to do business at when I was an agency producer, but it’s even better when you’re on staff! I’m looking forward to all the challenges and excitement that New York’s thriving advertising industry creates. Let’s get busy.”

About Napoleon
A previz powerhouse since 1985, Napoleon has not only endured, we’ve expanded, using our previz prowess as a springboard to a full portfolio of products and services that now includes art, audio, broadcast and digital/content. Thanks to a trait programmed into our DNA from the very beginning—the ability to adapt to meet advertising’s ever-changing needs—our longevity is unrivaled, our talent untouchable, our client list unparalleled and our facility incomparable.

Nothing sets Napoleon apart more than our New York City headquarters. In 2013, at a time when much of the industry was downsizing, Napoleon seized an opportunity for growth and, after 15 years in midtown Manhattan, moved to a custom-built facility in the city’s new nexus of creativity and technology, the vibrant Flatiron District. Gutting Kate Spade’s former offices, Napoleon created a one-of-a-kind, bi-level 14,450-square-foot contemporary office and production studio that makes our diverse capabilities clear.

The new project-centric space features a 12-camera Vicon Bonita motion-capture system, a spacious green-screen stage, stylishly efficient edit and audio suites and a sleekly modern kitchen that allows our peerless client services to shine, all seamlessly tied together with a state-of-the-art infrastructure. The studio boasts an open-air workspace for 50-plus creative directors, animators, editors, designers, illustrators, modelers, compositors, scripters, character artists, motion-graphics artists and producers, expressly designed to foster creative collaboration among staff and clients alike.

Savvy agencies and brands seeking peerless experience and expertise know there’s only one place to turn: Napoleon.
