4 join, 2 upped at Odd Lot


Odd Lot Entertainment's lot is getting a lot more crowded.

The Los Angeles-based production outfit has hired Keith Kauffman as senior vp business and legal affairs, Andrew Boyd as marketing and publicity director, Yvette Pereira as accounting manager and Shirley Kim as international business affairs manager.

The company is promoting several from within as well. Natalya Petrosova has been bumped from vp to senior vp finance, and Chris Ranta has moved from an assistant position to manager of physical production. Odd Lot vp development and acquisitions Eryl Woodlief will add similar duties at the company's foreign sales division, Odd Lot International. Boyd also will handle marketing and publicity for the foreign arm.

Kauffman was vp business and legal affairs at First Look Studios. Pereira was a revenue accountant at Fidelity Investments. Boyd was director of international marketing at Mandate Pictures. Kim was a legal assistant at Mark Litwak & Associates.

"Their combined talents will support the vision of Odd Lot Entertainment," company co-founder Deborah Del Prete said. "This is a significant time for our continued growth."

Odd Lot's upcoming slate includes Frank Miller's "The Spirit," Dean Parisot's "The Lavender Hill Mob" and Fina Torres' "Sense and Sensibilidad."
