Planet Blue Saba

One of those rare second generation Hollywood natives, Saba began his career in the art department of the historic Tower Records’ flagship store on the Sunset Strip (literally a staple in pop culture lore - see the movie Empire Records). This work and his subsequent beating of the pavement led to getting his first job in animation at HBO’s animation house, where he worked on productions such as Todd McFarlane’s Spawn and Ralph Bakshi’s Spicy City. Saba then moved to Nickelodeon, where he would spend the next 16 years. During this time Saba worked on Butch Hartman's The Fairly Odd Parents, one of Nickelodeon’s most successful shows. Saba would become producer for multiple seasons, at which time The Fairly Odd Parents would be nominated twice for a Daytime Emmy. 

Rickey Boyd’s 25+ year career includes extensive experience as a puppeteer, animation director, and designer.  As a performer, he had the honor of joining and working alongside his childhood legend Jim Henson and the Muppet Performers on a wide array of projects ranging from Sesame Street to Ninja Turtles 1 and 2, Disney/Henson's Dinosaurs (the Series), Muppets from Space, Animal Jam and Muppet Wizard of Oz. Over the past 17 years he has lead our talented team on adventures with Elmo, Big Bird and friends for Sesame Workshop, along with other characters for HBO, The Jim Henson Company, Nickelodeon and others. The team won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Effects for its work on Elmo the Musical under his direction. 

A New Jersey native and Rutgers graduate, Michael Lapinski has worked for over 20 years in some of the most well-known animation houses in the world. Lapinski’s artistic talent is a balance of creative and analytical approach to the craft, and he a master of multiple artistic styles. These rare attributes allow Lapinski to approach projects from a scope broader than just an artist, but also one who can govern creative vision. This same experience has had him working on as broad and diverse projects as the creator-driven reboot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Lead Designer for several seasons on Blues Clues.  Lapinski has played a critical role in some of the Studio's best work, such as the Emmy-award winning Elmo the Musical, recent pilot work for Jim Henson Productions, trailer work for Valiant and music videos for Warner Brothers.
