Joyce exits Revolution

Exec handled publicity work on 'Sweethearts,' 'Animal'

Revolution Studios publicity exec Mae Joyce is ankling her post today, to get ready for a fall wedding and change in her professional focus.

Joyce, who recently became engaged, said she wants to return to handling just film publicity, rather than the many corporate duties she also oversaw for Revolution.

Since joining the company in November 2000, she has handled most publicity work, both corporate and for its first year’s slate of films, which included “America’s Sweethearts,” “Black Hawk Down” and “The Animal.” Her previous publicity experience includes a four-year stint at Disney and 3½ years at Warner Bros.

“I can’t imagine a more satisfying professional experience or a more talented group of people to work with,” said Joyce. “I will miss everyone at Revolution Studios and Sony’s marketing group. I look forward to pursuing my passion in film marketing and consulting with Revolution Studios in the future.”

Revolution partner Joe Roth said: “Mae has been with us from the beginning and has been an integral part of our family. We will miss her very much but support her personal choice to return solely to film marketing. Her relationships with filmmakers are unparalleled in this business, and we look forward to working with her as a consultant in the very near future.”

Terry Curtin, who recently joined Revolution from Universal to handle film marketing and publicity, will temporarily take over Joyce’s duties while considering how to structure that work for the company, which does not have exec titles. Revolution pic “The New Guy” premieres next week.
