VP, Creative Advertising
Disney

LOS ANGELES, USA // Aveedeh Shahbazi is a Vice President of Creative Advertising at The Walt Disney Studios working across theatrical and Disney+ marketing campaigns for Pixar, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Lucasfilm and 20th Century Studios.

In 2012, she left her job in property management to pursue her dream of working on movie trailers. She started as a Studio Page at Paramount Pictures, and quickly made her way into creative advertising. After 4 1⁄2 years at Paramount Pictures, she landed at The Walt Disney Studios where she has worked on creative marketing campaigns for films like Star Wars: The Last Jedi and Solo: A Star Wars Story to animated campaigns including Toy Story 4, Frozen 2 and most recently Disney & Pixar’s Soul. She is currently spearheading the creative advertising campaign for Disney & Pixar’s Luca, and developing campaigns for Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story and the upcoming Disney & Pixar films Turning Red and Lightyear.

She still cannot believe she has achieved her childhood dream of not only working on movie trailers but doing it with some of the most talented individuals in the business at Disney.
