PostWorks Hires Fornero, Moves into Distribution

 
 

Moving further into becoming a one-stop shop for productions that want everything under one roof makes sense for many edit houses today. Offering just editing rooms and some color correcting makes for tight margins in competitive markets like New York.

 

Opportunities opened up after festivals and theater chains settled on the highly codified DCP (digital cinema package) format. That suits an increasing number of Indie directors who want more control of the whole, expanded post-life of their masterpiece.

 

In the following press release, PostWorks New York describes its expansion into a digital cinema distribution with its new hire of Greg Fornero and its full package of offerings:

 

PostWorks Forms Digital Cinema Unit to Serve Indie, Festival Markets

 

Hires digital cinema specialist Greg Fornero.

 

NEW YORK – PostWorks New York has formed a new digital film distribution service, PostWorks Digital Cinema, and hired industry veteran Greg Fornero to lead it. The new unit will work with indie film producers and distributors, international film festivals and independent DI facilities. It will provide DCP duplication, drive set rentals and sales, KDM management and broadband content delivery services.

 

“As the DCP has become the de facto standard for feature screening, fast, flexible and affordable digital cinema services become increasingly critical to the independent market,” said PostWorks Senior VP for Theatrical Services Clark Henderson. “Our clients require more and more time-critical assistance with DCP logistics and key management, particularly with previews, festival screenings and even for limited theatrical release.”

 

A native of Southern California, Fornero has been intensively involved with digital cinema distribution, digital cinema mastering and live event management since joining Cinedigm Digital Cinema Corp in 2005. He transitioned to Technicolor Digital Cinema in 2011 and then to Deluxe Technicolor Digital Cinema in 2015. At TDC and DTDC, he managed digital cinema requirements for independent studios including The Weinstein Company.

 

“PostWorks has long relied upon Greg as a key resource for Digital Cinema support to our independent clients. He is the go-to guy in this market and we are lucky to have him join us to build this service,” says Henderson, “Greg combines the perfect blend of technical savvy and high-touch client support for our filmmakers.”

 

At PostWorks, Fornero assumes the post of Vice President for Distribution Services and will work bi-coastally for the PostWorks Digital Cinema initiative. “DCP distribution is not an initiative we take lightly,” he declares. “Around-the-clock service coverage, strictest standards for content security and state-of-the-art processes for ensuring technical integrity all require a full commitment. We have made that commitment.”

California Still Top Film Locale, Study Says, But UK Makes More Money

California Still Top Film Locale, Study Says, But UK Makes More Money

 
 

California didn’t host any of the 25 top-grossing live-action films in 2015, FilmLA reports in its 2015 report. However, California had 19 of the 109 top-grossing films shot in the state, with the UK second with 15.

 

Where was New York? Well, Georgia and Louisiana had 12 each, and Canada 11 of those top-grossing films. New York, ranking second in 2014 with 13 feature films, notched only seven the following year.

 

But unlike years past, California didn’t produce any top-tier, large-budget (over $100 million) live action films – only animated features. Live action flicks throw off more money into the local economy than animated ones, since animation studios can control their costs, while live productions buy up lots of supplies and production crews. So, FilmLA (the city’s film office) figured that the UK pulled in more production-related spending ($1.63 billion) for the 19 large budget films made there, while the 19 top-grossing films in California generated less than half that amount ($720 million).

 

So what about Britain’s exit from the EU and the resulting drop in the British Pound (BP) in relation to both the Euro and US dollar? It’s unclear where the BP will stabilize in the long run, but if British money continues at such a discount, more and more US productions might be headed overseas.
