Distributive Properties: Tom Quinn

Tom Quinn originally planned on making his career in front of the camera, but after moving to Los Angeles, he quickly shifted to the other side. Landing an entry-level publicity job with the distributor Samuel Goldwyn Films, Quinn got a taste for the field by working on ‘90s movies like I Shot Andy Warhol.

Anschutz Entertainment Group (AEG)

AEG is a wholly owned subsidiary of Anschutz Company and operates numerous divisions dedicated to sports and entertainment presentations. Among other ventures and properties, AEG owns or controls facilities such as the STAPLES Center, Home Depot Center, American Airlines Arena, and NOKIA Theater Times Square. The company also owns several professional sports franchises, including the Los Angeles Kings, Houston Dynamo, and Los Angeles Galaxy.

Warner Bros. Records

Jack Warner founded Warner Bros. Records in 1958, setting up a modest office above the film studio’s machine shop on the lot of Warner Bros. Pictures. In 1963, the record label acquired Frank Sinatra’s Reprise Records, securing the talents of the Chairman of the Board, along with the rest of the Rat Pack.

Record Label Salesperson

Representing the record label, the salesperson is responsible for establishing relationships with retail stores, rack jobbers, and online outlets to set up channels of distribution for album sales. He or she secures contracts for distribution, oversees the delivery order to provide the merchant with product, and continues to service the account as necessary.

Digital Licensing Administrator

The digital music revolution hit the marketplace and confounded some record labels and music publishers who were unprepared to deal with the resulting legal questions of copyright and ownership. Since then, music makers have pushed hard (often in court) to receive proper payment for their work that’s distributed through digital media, and music companies rely on a staff of licensing professionals to accurately determine rights, royalties, and usage.

Film Sales Agent

Independent filmmakers can spend years coming up with the perfect idea, scraping together the funding to shoot, and finally completing that masterpiece—but the film may be relegated to the shelf if it cannot be sold to exhibitors. Film sales agents represent filmmakers in need of a distribution agreement.
