Oscilloscope Laboratories announced today that they are bringing on Charlie Olsky, previously of Susan Norget Film Promotion, as their new Head of Publicity. Olsky, who was also a past Indiewire contributor, will oversee all current and future O-Scope releases.
During his four and a half years with Norget, Olsky played a critical part in the campaigns for "Melancholia," "Cave of Forgotten Dreams," "Pina," "The Future," and Oscar nominee "How to Survive a Plague" among others. Previous to his work at Norget, Olsky worked with the Tribeca Film Festival and Sundance Festival and also was a freelance journalist. At O-Scope Olsky will work under heads Dan Berger and David Laub.
On the announcement Laub and Berger commented, “We are absolutely thrilled to welcome Charlie to the O-Scope family. He brings an amazing wealth of knowledge, experience, and creativity to the job. He’s the perfect person to bring some next-level shit to the Publicity Department."
Olsky said, "I couldn’t be more excited to bring my next-level shit to the O-Scope team, with its continuing commitment to championing the freshest, most stimulating films in independent cinema.”
Among O-Scope's upcoming releases are "Reality," Matteo Garrone's Cannes winner, Slamdance winner "Welcome to Pine Hill," and comedy "It's a Disaster," starring David Cross, Julia Stiles, and America Ferrera. Recent O-Scope acquisitions include Sundance films "A Teacher," "Mother of George," and "After Tiller."
