>> Dominion3 Formed by Departing Clein + White PR Execs


(indieWIRE/ 8.30.00) -- PR firm Clein + White senior executives Kim Dixon, Judy Dixon and Heather Burgett recently left the agency to form Dominion3, a new firm specializing in indie and studio features, filmmakers, production studios, events and talent. The LA based publicity agency will also focus on
new media as a priority. Also joining the Dominion3 team from Clein + White
are Ali Forman and Jose Martinez.


"Since Harry Clein stepped down from publicity last November, we have been
leading the PR efforts for Clein + White," commented Kim Dixon in a prepared
statement, "The decision to create our own banner is a natural progression
and Mr. Clein has been extremely supportive of our move." Dominion3 will be
travelling to the upcoming Toronto Film Festival representing award winning
documentaries "Fighter" (Amir Bar-Lev) and "Keep The River On Your Right: A Modern Cannibal Tale" (Laurie Gwen Shapiro and David Shapiro).


Some of the groups the Dominion3 founders worked with while at Clein + White
include the Independent Film Channel, director Wolfgang Petersen ("The Perfect Storm") and Klasky Csupo ("The Rugrats") as well as Eveo.com, Neurotrash.com and OnLine Production Services.
