D’Works sets Borders

Exec new head of PDI

Gloria Borders has joined DreamWorks Animation as head of PDI/DreamWorks, the studio’s Redwood City campus. DreamWorks Animation produces about half of its films at PDI, including, most recently, “Madagascar.”

Borders is taking over for Patti Burke, who is transitioning into a senior consultant role at the company. Borders will oversee all production and operations at PDI/DreamWorks.

She comes to DreamWorks Animation from Revolution Studios, where she served as head of post-production since 2000. Prior to that she spent several years at Skywalker Sound, where she was VP-general manager. While at Skywalker, she won an Academy Award in sound effects editing for her work on “Terminator 2” and received an Oscar nomination for her work as supervising sound editor on “Forrest Gump.”

Borders’ hiring was prompted by Burke’s decision to step down as head of PDI/DreamWorks. Burke will be assuming a more flexible consulting role that will allow her to spend more time with her family. In her new position, she will work on select, high-priority projects for the company.
