Trimark’s sure with Schorr

Indie names exec senior prod'n veep

Former Kennedy/Marshall Co. senior VP Robin Schorr has joined Trimark Pictures as senior VP of production, overseeing the company’s specialized film-making efforts.

The move is a further indication of the Santa Monica-based indie’s push into the arthouse arena, following a spate of high-profile specialized acquisitions.

Schorr will report to company chairman and CEO Mark Amin.

“Robin’s taste, expertise and background will be essential in implementing Trimark’s business plan for the production and distribution of talent-driven specialized films that are truly unique and have a definite point of view,” said Amin.

During her two years with Kennedy/Marshall, Schorr oversaw creative development for projects including “Map of the World,” starring Sigourney Weaver and Julianne Moore, and “Sixth Sense,” starring Bruce Willis. Both films begin production later this month.

Simultaneously, Schorr produced Banner Entertainment’s “Under Heaven,” directed by Meg Richman and starring Joely Richardson, Aden Young and Molly Parker. The film premiered in competition at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

Earlier, Schorr served as VP of production at Lawrence Mark Prods., working on such features as “Jerry Maguire,” “Object of My Affection” and “Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion.”

Before getting into the film business, she produced the alternative music program “The Cutting Edge” for MTV.

“It seems to me that almost all the worthwhile movies being made right now are indie films,” Schorr told Daily Variety. “I’ve been extremely impressed with Trimark’s recent performance with productions like ‘Eve’s Bayou’ and acquisitions such as ‘Chinese Box’ and ‘Billy’s Hollywood Screen Kiss.’ ”
