What do Ant Farm and Pongo have in common? Besides being LA-based creative marketing companies? Yes, cute names are in common. They have CARY SACHS in common – sort of. Cary is the new President of Television and Streaming for Ant Farm. They created that post just for him…very cool. He was over at Pongo where he was CMO and SVP. He’s got tons of awards and has worked at the most inventive shops on the left coast, like Studio City and Trailer Park TV. He’s a Kent State grad with an MFA in Film Prod from Univ of New Orleans. Good times are gonna roll where he is, for sure. And he’s the man who we are spending Five Minutes With this Friday. Well Dunne! Take it away Cary…
Favorite way to jumpstart a stalled creative streak

Think About This: “When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won. There have been tyrants and murderers, and for a time, they can seem invincible, but in the end, they always fall. Think of it–always.” ~ Gandhi
