Smith will be the chairman, CEO, and chief creative officer of the new marketing agency, Amusement Park Entertainment, which will be based in Los Angeles. The shop will focus its work on “trans-media” storytelling, creative content development, and integrating messages across multiple media by honing in on mobile applications, film, and gaming.
