Kodak scans new exex in digital arm

Lombardo's 'vision, talent' touted; Pooler a co. original

Kodak digital-filmmaking unit Cinesite Hollywood gave its exec suites a new look, naming Dan Lombardo prexy and Jerry Pooler executive director, creative.

Lombardo replaces Ruth Scovill, who ankled in mid-June to pursue other interests. Pooler’s title is a new one for the company.

Kodak recently focused the Hollywood unit on film preservation and on the hot business of creating digital intermediates for movie post-production work. The company also handles film scanning and recording services, and does basic visual effects work. A separate London unit will continue to offer an even broader range of digital moviemaking services.

“Dan Lombardo has the vision, talent and leadership qualities needed to guide Cinesite Hollywood as it explores new frontiers,” said Bertrand Decoux, VP and general manager of worldwide entertainment imaging services for Kodak’s Entertainment Imaging division.

Lombardo joined Cinesite in 2001, overseeing the company’s visual-effects operations in 60 features. He started at Amblin Entertainment, and previously was VP of production at Computer Film Company and at Manex Visual Effects.

Pooler was one of Cinesite’s first employees, joining in 1992, the year it was founded. He has overseen the company’s film restoration work on features such as “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs,” “Fantasia,” “Sleeping Beauty” and “To Kill a Mockingbird.” He previously worked at Apogee and at CFI Labs.
