Vlad PISARIK

Director WW Creative Services | PARAMOUNT

Born and raised in Ukraine, Vlad Pisarik moved to the United States when he was 20 years old. While attending the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, he began working at Hoffman York Advertising Agency, as an account executive for Chicago White Sox, Milwaukee Brewers and Wisconsin Lottery clients, to name a few.

In 2003, Vlad moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of working in the film entertainment industry. He enjoyed a successful four-year stint as the senior account executive with the award-winning advertising company 30sixty advertising+design, establishing strong relationships with clients at Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox, Universal Pictures, and Lionsgate Entertainment. In 2008, Vlad moved to the studio side. He currently works at Paramount Pictures as a Worldwide Creative Director, managing some of the biggest and most-challenging home media campaigns.

As a Vice President of Marketing at Believe Entertainment, Vlad produced the award-winning feature film, Rolling. The film was a multi award winner on the “underground” film festival circuit, culminating with a 2009 PRISM Award. Currently, Vlad is executive producing several projects with the production company Group In Progress, to be filmed in 2016.

questionnaire

1.) What was your very first job?

Dishwasher in Polish-American restaurant in New York City in the 90’s.

 

2.) Please describe, in your own words, what your job is and what work it entails.

I’m Executive Creative Director, managing home entertainment campaigns for theatrical and catalogue releases for Paramount Pictures.

 

3.) How did you discover that the creative world was right for you? Was there a time in your life that you credit to this discovery? What was there train of events that brought you to where you are today?

 

My first job out of college was at the advertising agency, sorting the mail and answering the phones. I immediately fell in love with the creative process and within the next few years, first moved to the account side, working as an account executive on Kentucky Fried Chicken account and Wisconsin Lottery. Designing and laying out those coupons was a blast ☺

 

4.) In your constantly growing and expanding industry, how do you find inspiration to keep your work fresh, innovative and relevant?

Your publication is actually one of the inspirations, I keep a copy of your yearly editions in my office and flip through it often to get inspired. I also work with some of the most amazing and creative people in an advertising industry, so I consider this part of the process to be pretty easy.

 

5.) If you had to pick one piece of work or project that you are most proud of, more for the creative work and innovation it required, rather than its recognition or industry “success,” what would it be? 

 

Working with Ray Charles during The Wisconsin Lottery video shoot was AMAZING.

 

Cheech and Chong’s “Stash Box” DVD collection is also pretty cool.

 

Redesigning the whole DreamWorks Animation home entertainment catalogue in foil stamped line look was exhausting, but it turned out pretty well.
