A must-attend Keynote exploring Screen Adaptations of Children’s Content. Producer Jason Lust and his company Soluble Fish Productions has set-up a wide variety of movies throughout his career, most recently The History of Tom Thumb. Previously, Lust had a producing partnership with Animal Logic Entertainment, and during his tenure there the Lego Movie was produced. Lust was responsible for contracting over $1 billion dollars’ worth of pipeline business, in conjunction with setting up approximately fifteen features including Peter Rabbit (Sony) which was the second highest grossing feature in the UK for Sony in their company’s history behind James Bond. While serving a 7-year tenure as head of Jim Henson Company’s feature film division, Lust built a feature slate which includes Guillermo Del Toro’s 'Pinocchio' (Netflix).
