As Executive Vice President and co-founder of Pixeldust Studios, Elizabeth works with the same optimism and imagination she has had since the company’s inception in 2004. Her passion for storytelling through animation is refreshing and contagious, one that’s helped propel Pixeldust to prominence in the production and visual effects industry.
Television production is in Elizabeth’s genes. Her mother, Lupita Martinez, was a pioneering TV personality at the local station in Monterrey, Mexico. Elizabeth got her professional start managing different tasks on a ‘live show’ at Televisa in Mexico City.
At Pixeldust, Elizabeth oversees operations and has expanded the company’s international presence opening studios in Toronto, New York and New Zealand. She handles dozens of projects a year, serving as Executive Producer with a keen ability to recognize and nurture talent. Her forward thinking and creative ideas have garnered a National Emmy Award, a CINE golden Award and a New Your Festivals World Medal for her role as Art Director and VFX Producer.
Most recently, Elizabeth has served as a member of the Middleburg Film Festival’s Board of Directors, a four-day events that showcases narrative and documentary films in a spectacular setting.
