NEW YORK — Dimension has added two to its production team — casting veep Rita VanderWaal and VP of production Damien Saccani.
Both will report to Dimension co-heads Andrew Rona and Brad Weston, VanderWaal out of New York and Saccani from L.A.
Before joining Dimension, VanderWaal was an independent casting director. Credits include “Love Liza,” and “Rennie’s Landing,” as well as TV work such as “Running With Scissors” on Oxygen and “Tracey Takes On…” for HBO.
Prior to Dimension, Saccani worked as an independent producer. Before that, he and Jon Berg headed a production/management company with a first look deal at Universal. Their project “Out of Time,” penned by Dave Collard, is set up at MGM, with Carl Franklin attached to direct. Sacconi is co-producing with Berg, Neal Moritz and Jesse Beaton.
Saccani had earlier stints at Universal, Touchstone and CAA. “Damien has the perfect combination of talent, experience and creativity to complement our existing Dimension production team,” said Weston.
