Sullivan adds PR role at DW


Chip Sullivan has been promoted to head of publicity for DreamWorks, the studio said Monday.

Sullivan will oversee corporate communications for the company while continuing to collaborate with DreamWorks Animation on marketing projects.

He will report to DreamWorks SKG co-chairman and CEO Stacey Snider.

"Chip has long earned the admiration of everyone who has ever worked with him as well as earning great respect from the media and those outside the company who know how smart and imaginative he is," Snider said.

Sullivan began working for the studio in 1995 when he served as head of special projects, working on such Oscar-winning films as "Saving Private Ryan," "American Beauty" and "Gladiator."

He later headed animation production marketing at DWA and the special marketing projects for Paramount during Paramount's acquisition of the studio. The dual role found him overseeing publicity campaigns for such films as "Over the Hedge" and "Shrek the Third" and the Paramount co-productions "Dreamgirls" and "Transformers."
