Shuzo John Shiota, president and CEO of Polygon Pictures, uses processes he learned in the Japanese steel industry to create efficient and innovative animation production that has helped change the scope and landscape of animation as an art form.
Animation has grown into an artistic genre where the limits of what can be created are only challenged by the limits of our imagination.
At the helm of an animation studio on the cutting edge is Shuzo John Shiota, president and CEO of Polygon Pictures. Since 2003 Shuzo has steered Polygon Pictures, utilizing the efficient and innovative manufacturing processes he experienced in the Japanese steel industry. Once a small animation studio, Polygon Pictures has grown under Shuzo’s leadership to being a world-class studio creating CG animation for major films as well as TV productions, receiving multiple awards for creativity along the way. Shuzo has not only opened Japanese animation to the world, but has also helped change the scope and landscape of animation as an art form.
