Charlie Olsky Is Oscilloscope's New Head of Publicity

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."
