Top Video Game Agent Leaves CAA for UTA
Ophir Lupu represents game developers and is the former co-head of CAA's video game department.
Ophir Lupu, the former co-head of CAA's video game department and an agent there, has joined UTA. He will head UTA's video games practice.
At CAA, Lupu represented video game designers and creators such as Ken Levine (BioShock), Patrice Desilets (Assassin’s Creed) and Cliff Bleszinski (Gears of War). He also represented gaming companies Valhalla Studios (Devil’s Third), Crytek (Homefront 2) and Klei Entertainment (Shank).
In January, Lupu orchestrated the acquisition of indie video game studio Area/Code by Zynga, the creator of hits FarmVille and CityVille.
“Ophir’s accomplishments are tremendous, and his vision of where the games business is going makes this a very exciting opportunity for UTA,” said Jeremy Zimmer, UTA co-founder and managing director in a statement. “We believe he and his clients will thrive in our collaborative culture.”
UTA’s video game department represents game developers, publishers such as Electronic Arts, and technology companies including Nyko and Playcast.
