THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW
I’ve run into my old friend, colleague and Filmmaker co-founder Karol Martesko-Fenster at my favorite Tribeca coffee spot several times recently, and each time he’s been holding meetings at a large table filled with stacks of spreadsheets. Today, Indiewire confirms what he’s been up to: the launch of Tomorrow Unlimited.
Touting a plan to create “a network of global multi-platform properties,” Robert DeNiro, Jane Rosenthal, and Craig Hatkoff’s Tribeca Enterprises (parent of the Tribeca Film Festival and Tribeca Cinemas) has announced the formation of Tomorrow Unlimited LLC with former principals of RES Media Group. The new division is headed by CE0 Karol Martesko and COO John Turk, along with former RES team Jesse Ashlock, Jeremy Boxer, Khris Kline, and Sam Margolius. Specific plans have yet to be officially announced, but the new company will be a programming and curatorial entity with an online web journal, a multi-city event and a touring festival. The outfit will explore film, music, design, art, gaming, technology, architecture, fashion, and other areas.
And here’s Karol’s statement:
Tomorrow Unlimited will give voice to the grassroots of emerging creative culture worldwide. The extraordinary efforts of young talents working with new tools and techniques, new communication technologies, new concepts in multimedia creation, and perhaps most importantly, a renewed sense of hope for the promise of creative culture, offers an open door to our collective future.”
I’ll look forward to learning more about Karol’s new venture and sharing it with you in the weeks to come.
