New SPA Topkick

Deadline Hollywood Daily tells us:

...Michelle Raimo Named New President of Sony Pictures Animation

Sony Pictures will make the announcement tomorrow. Former Miramax and Paramount exec Michelle Raimo (Kouyate) has been recently producing the animated feature film Puss In Boots off the DreamWorks Animation Shrek franchise,

Sony Pictures Animation Presidents have not been long term the last few years. Nobody lasts very long, and the position has been a revolving door.

And sadly, raimo knows even LESS about animation than the previous "president. ". Not a good sign. And to call raimos a producer on Puss and Boots is like saying Gary Coleman invented Brain surgery. There's a good reason this broad isn't at DW any more--she just couldn't cut it. I sure wonder how Sony decides to hire these idiots. Maybe it' s THAT group that ought to be fired.

Amen to THAT brother!

Someday the Board of Directors will FIRE the idiots that makes these decisions......unless of course the idiots ARE the Board of Directors.

YOU decide.

Since when was animation knowledge required for an animation president?

Man are you right Floyd, that's been very apparent for years at most of the large studios. That's Sony's wonderful track record and the WB uses it as a business model.

I worked with her @ DW and had a very good experience. She appreciated my input and made sure to let me know. I'd work with her again in a heartbeat.
