Exec will oversee day-to-day operations for the company's foreign sales

Touting an expansion of the production and financing operations, Epic Pictures Group has hired industry veteran John Short as VP of international sales.

Short will oversee day-to-day operations for the company’s foreign sales business and introduce Epic’s slate at the upcoming Filmart in Hong Kong and at Cannes. Toppers Patrick Ewald and Shaked Berenson stressed that hiring Short will enable them to focus on original productions.
