Barlow plans own shingle

Exec ankling Roadshow post

SYDNEY — Roadshow Entertainment exec Milt Barlow plans to ankle at the end of this year and hang out his own shingle, working on projects for Internet-based entertainment, TV and interactive video.

Barlow, president/CEO of Roadshow’s homevideo, interactive and music division, describes his departure as “perfectly amicable,” driven by his desire for a “change of lifestyle” after 10 years with the Village Roadshow conglomerate in Australia. (Daily Variety, Aug. 17).

Barlow says he is talking to Village Roadshow chairman Robert Kirby about continuing to work for Roadshow as a consultant on various projects.

Barlow is in the midst of putting together a structure for his business, which will launch in early 1999, and says he is in discussions with potential partners in Australia and overseas.

With Barlow at the helm, Roadshow Entertainment’s annual revenues in the past 10 years have shot up from $A35 million ($21.7 million) to about $A150 million ($93 million), fueled largely by its booming sell-through operation, interactive video game hit “Nightmare,” and its star music act Savage Garden (whose albums have sold 8 million copies worldwide).
