NEW YORK — PostWorks New York (www.postworks.com) has formed a new digital film distribution service, PostWorks Digital Cinema, and hired Greg Fornero to lead it. The new unit will work with indie film producers and distributors, international film festivals and independent DI facilities providing 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,” says 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 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.
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 explains. “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.”
