Miramax taps homevid veep

Wells responsible for theatrical, direct-to-DVD product

NEW YORK — Miramax Home Entertainment has appointed Randy Wells VP of home entertainment, overseeing day-to-day marketing of DVD and video titles for both Miramax and Dimension.

Coming after persistent rumors began circulating last week of imminent layoffs — with no end yet in sight to the contract renegotiation faceoff between the brothers Weinstein and Disney — the announcement offers a small sign that business continues at Miramax.

Based out of Miramax’s Los Angeles office, Wells will report to senior exec VP of home entertainment Jeffrey Fink and will be responsible for both theatrical and direct-to-DVD product.

A 15-year veteran of the sector, Wells most recently was exec director of marketing at Artisan/Lions Gate Entertainment.
