PostWorks New York has formed a new digital film distribution service, PostWorks Digital Cinema.PostWorks New York has formed a new digital film distribution service, PostWorks Digital Cinema, and hired industry veteran Greg Fornero to lead it. The new unit will work with indie film producers and distributors, international film festivals and independent digital intermediate facilities.  It will provide digital cinema package duplication, drive set rentals and sales, KDM management and broadband content delivery services.

“As the DCP has become the de facto standard for feature screening, fast, flexible and affordable digital cinema services become increasingly critical to the independent market,” said PostWorks senior vice president for theatrical services Clark Henderson.  “Our clients require more and more time-critical assistance with DCP logistics and key management, particularly with previews, festival screenings and even for limited theatrical release.”

Greg ForneroA native of Southern California, Fornero has been intensively involved with digital cinema distribution, digital cinema mastering and live event management since joining Cinedigm Digital Cinema in 2005. He transitioned to Technicolor Digital Cinema in 2011 and then to Deluxe Technicolor Digital Cinema in 2015. At TDC and DTDC, he managed digital cinema requirements for independent studios including The Weinstein Company.

“PostWorks has long relied upon Greg as a key resource for digital cinema support to our independent clients.  He is the go-to guy in this market and we are lucky to have him join us to build this service,” says Henderson, “Greg combines the perfect blend of technical savvy and high-touch client support for our filmmakers.”

At PostWorks, Fornero assumes the post of vice president for distribution services and will work bi-coastally for the PostWorks digital cinema initiative. “DCP distribution is not an initiative we take lightly,” he declares. “Around-the-clock service coverage, strictest standards for content security and state-of-the-art processes for ensuring technical integrity all require a full commitment.  We have made that commitment.”
