CEO / Co-Founder

Don Parker

Don Parker is the CEO and co-founder of Shotgun Software, where he leads the team designing and building the Shotgun production tracking system , which addresses the industry’s need to effectively manage complex projects across multiple locations. Shotgun launched out of private beta in July, 2010 and has already been adopted by hundreds of studios around the world, including Digital Domain, Framestore, Blizzard, Dr. D, Double Negative and Zoic Studios, who rely on it each day in production.

Prior to founding Shotgun in 2006, Don was the pipeline producer on the Disney animated film The Wild, where he designed and produced the first generation of production tools Shotgun now provides.

Don has since worked with hundreds of studios and pipelines and has recently led the launch of an open source project that facilitates studio collaboration and the rapid evolution of production-critical tools.
