Operations and Marketing Positions Added at D3D & GSF
EVANSTON, IL (September 1, 2011) – D3D Cinema (D3D) and Giant Screen Films (GSF) are pleased to announce the addition of two new team members: Scott Fauteux, D3D Operations Manager, and Liz Brach, Marketing and Public Relations Manager.
Based out of D3D’s Philadelphia office, Fauteux brings over 10 years of experience in the audio/visual and media production industry. After graduating from Temple University with a degree in Broadcast Communications, he spent the next 3 years at the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia working as Manager of Theater Operations and Technical Services. In addition to museum management, Fauteux brings a diverse technical background in all aspects of digital 3D cinema, from production to the projection booth.
Based out of the Evanston headquarters, Brach will focus on marketing, advertising, and PR strategy for both companies. She will interface with D3D/GSF’s global network of museum theater clients facilitating film premieres, theater launches, promotional events and partner engagements. Brach graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Public Relations and Marketing and formerly worked at PR agencies in the Chicago area.
“This is an exciting time in our industry as the digital revolution continues its inevitable course, both from a production and exhibition standpoint. GSF and D3D have an outstanding slate of films on the horizon while D3D’s museum theater integration business is really taking off. In this period of growth, we are thrilled that Scott and Liz are joining the team,” said Don Kempf, President. “Scott brings a rare combination of production, theater integration and museum operational experience that further enhances the D3D pedigree. Liz will be playing an important role in our launch initiatives for The Last Reef, The Ice Age, and beyond.”
