TORONTO — Cinetic Media partner Micah Green has ankled the film sales and financing consultancy to join CAA as an agent in its motion picture department.
Currently based in Gotham, Green will be moving to Los Angeles and is expected to begin work next month.
Move marks another step in CAA’s push to beef up its indie financing ranks over the past year: Agency brought in ICM vet Bart Walker in November.
At Cinetic, Green helped spearhead domestic sales campaigns for such indie pics as “Napoleon Dynamite,” “Super Size Me,” “Spellbound,” “Mad Hot Ballroom” and “Dig!”
Working with John Sloss since 1997, Green has experience putting together financing on pics, including docu “Murderball” and upcoming comedies “Strangers With Candy” and “The Sasquatch Dumpling Gang.”
Prior to joining Sloss Law Office and Cinetic, Green worked at the Samuel Goldwyn Co., as well as for Arnold Kopelson Prods. At Cinetic, he oversaw the company’s theatrical and ancillary sales business and managed new talent relationships and marketing efforts.
“Our independent group has been visionary in its approach to arranging financing and distribution partnerships and deals for our clients and other entities,” said CAA prexy Richard Lovett on Wednesday. “Micah has consistently shown similar vision and innovation throughout his career, which makes his inclusion on our team a natural fit. We look forward to doing more with Cinetic as a result of this hire.”
CAA earlier this summer brought in Jason Heyman and Martin Lesak, longtime UTA staffers, as agents and partners. The agency sold off this week writer-helmer Bart Freundlich’s romantic comedy “Trust the Man” to Fox Searchlight at the Toronto Film Festival.
