Mediamation has promoted Vaughn Howes to director of sales. Howes has a wealth of knowledge and experience from his more than 30 years in the attractions and themed entertainment industries.
His career began in the 1980s when he worked with special effects pioneer, Douglas Trumbull of Showscan Corporation. “I remember being quite intimidated, working with known experts in movie special effects, developing large-screen 70mm film-based attractions for high-profile tourist destinations,” said Howes. At Showscan, he was involved in marrying digital audio technologies, and digital projection technologies which are now commonplace in theme parks, and cinemas worldwide.
Howes has been working with MediaMation for many years as the company’s main project manager on cinemas.
Said Howes “In my career I have been very fortunate to be involved in groundbreaking experiences at famous theme parks, like Disneyland and Universal Studios, during the era of adapting industrial motion simulator systems to the entertainment world. I feel lucky to have managed projects in almost every corner of the globe."
