David Fenkel, who co-founded the New York-based indie film distributor Oscilloscope Laboratories, is stepping down as president and moving into consulting role with the company. Current Oscilloscope execs Dan Berger and David Laub are being promoted to cooperatively oversee marketing, distribution and acquisitions.
Berger has worked with Fenkel for more than four years at Oscilloscope, where he has assisted in distribution and marketing. Both he and Laub previously worked with Fenkel at New York-based ThinkFilm, where they first collaborated with Oscilloscope founder Adam Yauch on the release of his 2006 film Awesome I F—– Shot That!. Laub has been handling acquistions and distribution for Oscilloscope for the past three years.
“This promotion makes a lot of sense,” Yauch said. “Dan Berger and David Laub have expanded their roles throughout the company over the years and have proven to be integral to our continued growth and success. The guys know their shit, and they have the utmost respect for filmmakers, which is at the core of O-Scope’s values. Fenkel has been a great collaborator and friend. We will all miss him in his previous role, but I’m glad he will remain a part of O-Scope and I know we’re both looking forward to seeing Dan and Laub kick some ass, nice-young-jewish-boy style.”
Oscilloscope’s upcoming films include Shut Up and Play the Hits, Samsara and Hello I Must Be Going.
