Apr 18, 2012
Veteran of Home Entertainment Video Sector Brings Licensing Expertise to Launch of Digital Distributor
LOS ANGELES, CA--Regency Resources, Inc. (
Mr. Venezia's career spans 30 years in the sourcing, negotiating and licensing of independent programming for the home entertainment market. His responsibilities will include working with content owners to solidify relationships, identify synergies and opportunities in order to ultimately unlock significant value from key video and media libraries.
Martin W. Greenwald, CEO of Regency Resources, stated, "Bruce worked with me at Image Entertainment, which is being acquired by Robert Johnson, the founder of BET Network. While at Image, Bruce oversaw the licensing of well over 10,000 titles during our years in the laserdisc and DVD environments." Mr. Greenwald continues, "Bruce is extraordinarily talented and a well-respected member of the entertainment community. He will be responsible for identifying the best-of-breed in content and to deliver that product to the world of internet TV on behalf of our clients. I am delighted to welcome Bruce to our growing family of superstars!"
Regarding his appointment, Mr. Venezia commented, "The internet TV space is even more exciting than my years in the packaged media world. Through Internet TV, we have the capability to reach a worldwide audience faster and more efficiently than ever before. My challenge will be to work closely with content providers to identify meaningful and significant programming. I plan to help build a world-class management team able to help identify and secure the hidden treasures I know are out there just waiting to be discovered. Success in that area will drive the Company's rapid expansion and shareholder value.
"During my tenure at Image Entertainment," said Mr. Venezia, "I had the opportunity to work with many entertainment industry luminaries and we licensed literally thousands of titles. Some that stand out on the music front were, 'Cher: The Farewell Tour,' 'The Who' Live, Mariah Carey, The Rolling Stones, and Kiss. Comedic projects included the licenses for several Jamie Foxx programs, The Blue Collar Comedians, and Pee Wee Herman. We also released feature films starring Tommy Lee Jones, Jennifer Aniston, Helen Hunt, Kevin Costner, Alec Baldwin and others. Image had a great repertoire of documentaries including programming from the Discovery Channel, IMAX and Werner Herzog. We plan to propel those kinds of results into this new and exciting digital medium."
