Bio

Prudence Fenton is an award-winning creative visualist. As a producer, filmmaker, executive, animator, multi-media artist, and Internet visionary, she has changed the ways things look, and our experience of them for over twenty-five years. (MTV IDs, Pee-wee's Playhouse, animated Peter Gabriel Videos, Liquid Television, ABC 1 Saturday Morning, Drew Carey's Greenscreen Show, and many others). She spent over 11 years as a think tank consultant at Disney R&D. Her projects ranged from SMART TOYS and PDA's in the parks to producing prototypes for the future of media at ABC, and a social media user-generated one for ESPN. She also collaborated with Disney websites including SOAPnet, ABC family, ESPN, Toontown, Casual Gaming and Disney online. Fenton takes ideas and makes things out of them with style, wit and intelligence. Her clients include Disney Imagineering, Disney R&D, Microsoft, Intel, Viacom and AOL.

Most recently she supervised all the media production for a popular location based game at Disney World for Walt Disney Imagineering- Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. Kids sign up to become sorcerers and walk around the Magic Kingdom fighting the famous villains like Cruella de Ville, Maleficient, and Hades.

Fenton also she served as Creative Executive Producer for 37 short videos about Burma that premiered on youtube channel U.S. Campaign for Burma, as well as on all other video sites like, veoh, funnyordie, etc. The project was originally conceived to raise awareness about Burma's repressive military dictatorship. Since then, the "little movies," as Fenton calls them, have drawn even more attention now that Aung San Sui Kyi has been incarcerated. Created through the collaborations of a diverse array of writers, directors and filmmakers, each video features a notable celebrity, with participants including Jennifer Aniston, Jackson Browne, Will Ferrell, Felicity Huffman, Ellen Page, and Sylvester Stallone, among others. It was heavily promoted through all social networks using apps and other viral marketing techniques.

Prudence is currently finishing a novel and has been published in Echoes Magazine Journal, Diverse Voices Quarterly and The Griffin.

She has a B.A. from Vassar College, an MFA from Corcoran School of Art, and a Doctorate in Spiritual Science. She has won three Emmys, a Grammy, and a Clio, as well as MTV awards.

Listen Up

Jack Healey is a long time Human Rights activist and ran Amnesty International in the '80s and put it forefront in the public mind. In 1988 I made an animated version of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for him. It traveled with a big concert tour of Springsteen, Sting, Peter Gabriel, Youssou N'Dour and Tracy Chapman.

Jack has been following the plight of Aung San Suu Kyi and Burma/Mayanmar for the last decade. In October 2007 the monks of Burma marched peacefully to protest the growing brutal military regime of Than Shwe. They were massacred in the streets by 10,000 soldiers. Jack wanted to show support globally in retaliation to this brutality. What we created were a mix of regular PSA's and several vignettes with actors demonstrating the real situations in Burma. It was a campaign that ran over the course of a month. The goal was to raise awareness of the situation in Burma and get people to sign up to show their support. We launched it May 1, 2008 and on May 3 an extremely violent cyclone hit Burma/Mayanmar. All of a sudden Burma/Mayanmar was on the front page of the news.

Here are a few:

I loved all of the spots and was incredibly lucky to be able to lead this cause.

Writing

I began my writing career for the Odessa American Newspaper in Odessa Texas and then got side tracked into film and animation as a producer and creative director for animation and mixed media. I have recently returned to writing.

I write flash fiction, short stories and novels. I’m in the Writers Program at UCLA, and will have a certificate by 2014. I’ve taken workshops in different cities and attended a few conferences, and many readings. I am committed to writing and do it whenever possible -- I have to make up for lost time. If I’m not writing, I’m reading -- even trips across town, which in LA can take over an hour, I’m listening to books. It’s become the all-consuming avocation.

I’ve been published in Echoes Journal (Print), Diverse Voices Quarterly and will be in The Griffin this fall. I’m currently at work on novel number two. Stay tuned.
