DeLuca will help shape the future of Trimarkpictures.com and the company’s other online efforts (including Netcasting spinoff Cinemanow.com), and play a key role in business development, formation of strategic alliances with other dot-coms and strengthening Trimark’s marketing efforts in cyberspace.

He will report directly to Peter Block, Trimark’s executive veep.

“Trimark has made a substantial commitment to making its presence felt on the Internet,” Block said. “Tom has a strong background in entertainment, Internet development and making solid e-business contacts.”

Before joining Trimark, DeLuca was the founder of Independentfilms.com. He also spent a year with Boston.com, the official site for the Boston Globe.

Trimark made its first leap onto the Web last year, inking a distrib deal with Broadcast.com to show its library of pics online.
