Native Pictures has hired Susan Rued Anderson as partner/executive producer in Los Angeles. She will work directly with the company’s founding partner, Tomer DeVito
Anderson most recently served as executive producer/managing director at B-Reel, where she secured the director (Drake Doremus) for Toshiba/Intel’s Emmy and triple Cannes Grand Prix winner The Beauty Inside. Prior to B-Reel, she was exec producer at The Sweet Shop and was integral in launching both companies’ U.S. commercial operations.
DeVito said that Anderson has “a rare combination of high-level production expertise rooted in storytelling and filmmaking craft, the ability to develop talent in an evolving media landscape and the innovative thinking that is crucial to successful digital campaigns. Susan joining us is the first in a series of exciting news about additional key hires and new directing talent we’ll be announcing soon.”
Last fall, Native announced the launch of a film division, COTA, led by veteran feature producer Michael Costigan (Brokeback Mountain, Prometheus, Out of the Furnace).
