Gov. Pete Wilson has appointed five new members, and made five re-appointments, to the California Film Commission. Not surprisingly, four of the five new appointees are Republicans.
The five new members, who will each serve a two-year term and be eligible for re-appointment after that time are:
- Linda R. Dryer, owner, VP and executive producer of Cryer Prods. A member of the DGA and the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, she replaces Sue Pedersen.
- Marie G. Kelley, a film and television producer-director and owner/president of Kelley Prods. She replaces Gayle Gladinius.
Hubbard replaces Schultz
- Mark R. Hubbard, the chief financial officer and head of business affairs for Harmony Pictures Inc. and Harmony Holdings Inc. He replaces Jackson Schultz.
- Leonard F. Hill, a partner in Fields Entertainment, a leading independent film and TV production company. The only Democratic appointee, he is a member of the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences, the Writers Guild and the Caucus for Writers, Producers and Directors. He replaces Stephen McCoy.
- Joseph A. Destein, president of Pacific Star Prods. A member of the Films Arts Foundation, the AFI and the Marin Arts Council, he replaces Sunny Mojonnier.
The governor’s re-appointments are Leo Chaloukian, Howard G. Kazanian, Jo Anne Darcy, Lindsley Parsons and Bill Welsh.
