Escutia to Spearhead D3D Museum Theater Sales & GSF Film Distribution Efforts in Europe.
EVANSTON, IL (May 20, 2011) – D3D Cinema (D3D) and Giant Screen Films (GSF) are pleased to announce the addition of industry veteran Domingo Escutia Muñoz as Director of Sales and Distribution for Europe, effective May 25, 2011. Based in Valencia, Spain, Escutia will lead the European distribution office for both companies, promoting a growing library of large-format and digital 3D productions. He will also oversee D3D’s theater sales into museums, aquariums and attractions, digital 3D system integrations, touring exhibition venues, and 70mm theater conversions.
Escutia is well known in the museum theater industry, having worked in business administration for over 13 years at Valencia’s distinguished Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, a museum and aquarium complex catering to over 3 million annual public and schools visitors. Escutia led a staff of over 120 museum professionals and oversaw programming, exhibitions, and operations in the museums and theaters, including the L’Hemisfèric IMAX Dome, 3D digital venue, and planetarium. This year, he will receive an Executive MBA from ESIC Business & Marketing School.
“We are thrilled that Domingo is joining the GSF/D3D team,” said Don Kempf, President. “Domingo has been at the helm of one of the most successful museum theaters in the world. Coupled with his experience in emerging digital theater technology, exhibition management and business operation, he is uniquely positioned to the brand presence and market penetration of Giant Screen Films and D3D Cinema in Europe. With some big developments on the horizon for both companies, it is critical that our efforts in Europe will be under the direction of one of the most respected professionals in the industry.”
“I’m very excited by this new challenge and proud to be a part of Giant Screen Films and D3D Cinema,” said Escutia. “GSF’s films have always been a breath of fresh air for the industry, distinctive films that truly resonate with European audiences. D3D’s pioneering museum theater initiatives are a real breakthrough, just what the doctor ordered at a time when museums are exploring new revenue streams. I’m eager to work with my longtime European colleagues in this new capacity.”
