R.I.P. WIP and Picturehouse

I just wanna say that on a personal level this is sad, especially since I have many friends at both companies… but I also know that this opens up a wealth of talented indie film distribution minds as potential candidates for bigger and better things to come. Nevertheless, the communal touch fostered by folks like Bob Berney, Mary Ann Hult, Liz Brambilla, Lindsay Crain, Carl Hampe, Laura Kim, and many others, will be missed. That is, until they emerge triumphant at others companies. Stay tuned, no doubt.
