Shingle shifts exec to L.A.

Veneziano will concentrate on third-party projects

GreeneStreet is continuing its western expansion, moving international topper Ariel Veneziano to L.A. to join recently relocated production chief Tim Williams.

Veneziano will concentrate on the third-party projects the company handles for international shingles and financing companies with the goal of increasing the number of international projects.

Exec told Daily Variety that proximity to agencies will help the company nab bigger talent as well as negotiate with a wider pool of producers.

“We want to work on bigger movies, and the move to L.A. is a bit of a boost in that direction,” he said.

Gotham production house announced in September that it was forming GreeneStreet Films West to move closer to studios and tenpercenteries. As part of that expansion, slate is expected to double to as many as seven films per year and company will move into bigger-budget pics.

GreeneStreet Films international coordinator Crystal Bourbeau will also be making the move to company’s Beverly Hills offices; Veneziano also said he will be making new hires.

Company at AFM is selling a number of pics, including “Gary the Tennis Coach,” “Tenderness” and Michael Ian Black-helmed “The Pleasure of Your Company,” which MGM picked up out of Toronto.
