Executive of the Week!
It's Friday, so it's once again time to honor a film industry executive with the title of 'Executive of the Week', in an effort to celebrate the good in the industry. Every Friday, Assistant/Atlas honors an Executive of the Week, who earns bragging rights until the announcement of the next Exec of the Week. Last week's exec was Flower Films' Development VP, Gwenn Stroman. Several people took the time to let me know that they agreed with my choice and I heard not one bad word spoken about the woman. That tells me two things:
1) Gwenn is in fact awesome.
2) People like celebrating the fact that other people aren't complete douchebags.
So, without further ado, allow me to present the second installment of Executive of the Week! This week's honoree is the sort of upstanding, steadfast young gentleman all too rare in the world of heady ambition that is HollyHell. Congrats to...
Shane Riches, Director of Development for David Foster Productions!
I haven't actually had the chance to talk to Shane in awhile, but I'm sure he's still got the same humility and clarity of thought that made me such a fan of him. So thanks, Shane, for being a decent person in a business full of douchebags. We've noticed, and we appreciate it.
