Indiewire Influencers Video: RADiUS-TWC Co-President Tom Quinn on Why VOD is a Dirty Word in the Industry

By Indiewire | Indiewire June 23, 2013 at 11:34AM

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 included 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."
