As part of the 2013 Indiewire Influencers series, we shot behind-the-scenes footage of our subjects' photo shoots inside the Film Society of Lincoln Center. Each day we will release a new video focusing on one of the 40 people or companies we see influencing the independent film world right now.
Today, we take a look at RADiUS-TWC, The Weinstein Company's new label headed by Tom Quinn and Jason Janego. With their extensive resumes that collectively include October Films, Samuel Goldwyn, Magnolia, Landmark and NBC, the pair have established the company as a force to be reckoned with. Their first release – last summer’s "Bachelorette" – earned over $8 million on VOD to become the highest-grossing pre-or simultaneous release on-demand title to date. Last month they took Nicolas Winding Refn’s "Only God Forgives" (which they bought back in March 2012) into Cannes’ official competition. In the below video Quinn explains why VOD is a dirty word in the industry and looks to the future with "Only God Forgives."
