Former CBS exec reports to Robertson

Former CBS exec Randy Haberkamp has been tapped program coordinator of educational and special projects for the Academy Foundation of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences.

Haberkamp, who will report to Acad exec administrator Rick Robertson, will be responsible for Academy Foundation lectures and seminars, the visiting artists program and various Academy Awards-related projects. First up for Haberkamp is the Academy’s soldout screenwriting seminar series, which commenced this week.

Depth of knowledge

“Randy’s knowledge of film history and his practical experience with programming and Hollywood production give him a terrific background for this job,” said Academy exec director Bruce Davis, who made the announcement. “We look forward to an exciting slate of interesting new events.”

As CBS director of specials and feature films from 1992-97, Haberkamp developed and coordinated primetime, live-action and animated specials and acquired theatrical pics for primetime telecast. Haberkamp most recently worked as a talent agent for JS Represents.

Producer of “The Charlie Chaplin Centennial Celebration” in 1989 and three Cinecon film fests, Haberkamp also is the founder of the Silent Society, a group devoted to screening silents in the Hollywood Heritage Museum and preserving rare films through the UCLA Film Archive. He holds a master’s degree in motion picture and TV production from UCLA.

Haberkamp also produced and helmed the feature documentary “Small Town, American.”
