LEGEND OF THE GUARDIANS THE OWLS OF GA HOOLE

ZACK SNYDER (Director) made the jump to feature direction from the commercial and music video world with his inspired re-imagining of the George Romero classic "Dawn of the Dead.” He then directed the groundbreaking action epic "300,” adapted from the Frank Miller Graphic novel. Grossing more than $450 million worldwide, "300” established Snyder as one of the film industry's most artistic and sought-after directors. He followed with the expertly crafted "Watchmen,” bringing the "unfilmable” graphic novel to the big screen in 2009.

Snyder's next film is the action fantasy "Sucker Punch,” which he directed and co-wrote, and also produced with Deborah Snyder. Opening on March 25, 2011, the film follows a young girl whose dream world provides the ultimate escape from her darker reality. "Sucker Punch” features an ensemble cast led by Emily Browning, Abbie Cornish, Jena Malone, Vanessa Hudgens, Jamie Chung, Carla Gugino, Jon Hamm and Scott Glenn.

Snyder produces through his Warner Bros.-based shingle, Cruel and Unusual Films, which he co-founded with wife and producing partner, Deborah Snyder. They are presently developing a wide range of films, including "The Last Photograph,” with a story by Snyder and screenplay by Kurt Johnstad; and "Army of the Dead,” an action-thriller being written by Joby Harold, from an original story by Snyder, with award-winning commercial filmmaker Matthijs van Heijningen, Jr. set to direct.

In addition, Snyder is scripting "Xerxes,” with his "300” collaborator Kurt Johnstad, based on Frank Miller's upcoming graphic novel of the same name. Cruel and Unusual Films is also developing "The Illustrated Man,” based on Ray Bradbury's classic, and "Cobalt 60.” ZAREH NALBANDIAN (Producer) began his creative collaboration with Zack Snyder during production on the 2006 box office smash hit "300” and continues for Snyder's upcoming action fantasy feature film "Sucker Punch.”

He served as an executive producer on the Academy Award®-winning "Happy Feet,” a groundbreaking film due to its photo-realistic visuals, highly complex dance sequences and dramatic performances. His other projects under the Animal Logic banner include the visual effects-laden, Alex Proyas-directed sci-fi thriller "Knowing”; Baz Luhrmann's epic "Australia” and "Moulin Rouge!”; as well as "Hero”; "The Matrix”; and "House of Flying Daggers.”

Nalbandian began his career in the early ‘70s as a film effects artist, working on feature films and television commercials in the pre-digital world. In 1991, he co-founded Animal Logic, with the vision to build a creative environment allowing artists and technicians to harness the opportunities offered by digital technologies for design, visual effects and animation production. With his commitment to creative and technical excellence, he has steered Animal Logic to become one of the world's leading digital production studios.
