Rosanne Korenberg, the well-known acquisitions executive from 20th Century Fox, has left the studio to form repping, production and consulting company Traction Media with LA-based entertainment boutique law firm Stone, Meyer & Genow.
The venture will represent finished films seeking North American distribution as well as packaging and producing projects. "We're in a unique position to respond to the needs of independent filmmakers, most obviously the need for money, autonomy and distribution," said Korenberg.
Doug Stone, a partner in the firm, added that the new venture and the law firm are separate entities and will share clients on a case-by-case basis. While she was at Fox, Korenberg was involved in the acquisition of Swimfan 85 for Fox and The Deep End, Kissing Jessica Stein and Waking Ned Devine for Fox Searchlight as well as select international rights to Y Tu Mama Tambien, Talk To Her and Crossroads.
Stone, Meyer & Genow represents clients including actor/producer Kevin Spacey and his company Trigger Street Productions, Halle Berry, writer/producer Dean Devlin, producer Andras Hamori, Constantin Films and Alliance Atlantis Communications.
