NEW YORK — Former Miramax Films marketing exec David Brooks is rejoining the studio as executive vice president of new ventures and marketing.
Brooks, who has been an independent consultant to film distribution and production companies for the past year, will report to Mark Gill, president of Miramax/L.A.
Based in New York, Brooks’ primary responsibility will be to serve as Miramax’s point person on joint venture marketing, such as the new multimedia company that the studio recently announced with Tina Brown and Ron Galotti.
Brooks will also oversee the company’s annual Academy Awards advertising campaign. He will be the marketing point person on four Miramax films per year, working with exec veepee for marketing and publicity Marcy Granata and senior veepees of marketing David Kaminow and Lorin Prince, who run the day-to-day operations of the marketing department.
Before starting his own company, Brooks worked for Miramax for seven years, rising through the ranks to become senior vice president of marketing.
During that time, he worked on more than 200 movies, including “Good Will Hunting,” “The English Patient” and “Pulp Fiction.”
