I'm currently EVP Strategy and Acquisitions for Clarius Entertainment - a marketing and distribution company looking for commercial, wide theatrical releases for North America. I'll read scripts of movies that have finance in place but we mostly acquire on completion. My background is in movie research: most recently in that space, I oversaw global research at Disney for theatrical and home entertainment. Previously I founded and was CEO / President of First Movies Intl, where I spent over a decade traveling the world testing movie concepts; franchise and brand health; movie playability; marketing concepts and more. Merging data with broader strategic thinking gives me a consumer focused approach to acquisitions and distribution.
