Anne Carey Joins N.Y. Production Company Archer Gray (EXCLUSIVE)

Producer will serve as president of production at Amy Nauiokas' budding shingle

Producer Anne Carey (pictured above left) has joined Gotham-based production company Archer Gray as president of production.

Carey, a former exec at New York indie outfits This is That and Good Machine, will oversee Archer Gray’s developing projects and initiatives in film and TV, and also will have a hand in the company’s theatrical output.

She’ll work alongside Archer Gray founder and CEO Amy Nauiokas (pictured above right), who launched the shingle in 2010 as part of her transition from a career in finance to the entertainment industry. Formerly a managing partner at Smuggler Films, Nauiokas’ film credits include “Greetings from Tim Buckley,” the Penn Badgley starrer soon to screen as part of the Tribeca Film Festival, and “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister and Pete,” the Sundance alum on which she was an exec producer. On Broadway Archer Gray has been involved in a handful of projects include Tony winner “Once.”

Nauiokas, whose CV includes senior management stints at Barclays Bank and Cantor Fitzgerald, also plans to keep one foot in venture capital and tech with an eye toward pulling together a robust digital distribution model.

“I liked the idea of teaming with somebody who has the financial expertise she has,” said Carey, a New York indie veteran whose roster of movie credits includes “The American,” “The Savages,” “Adventureland” and the recent “Love, Marilyn.” “I’m going to learn a lot.”

Carey and Nauiokas said they’ve already raised a pool of development and production funds, although they wouldn’t specify how much, and added they plan to push some initial projects forward now as they continue to add to the pot.

Carey most recently was a partner at Epoch Films. Her deal with Archer Gray is exclusive, but there’s a possibility she’ll work independently on some projects initiated before she joined up with Archer Gray.

Shani Geva, who’s worked with Carey at This is That and Epoch, will follow Carey over to Archer Gray, signing on as a creative executive.
