LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Entertainment media company Maitland Primrose Group, who operates and owns Moving Pictures magazine, has named Jay Milla the Senior Vice President and Publisher of Moving Pictures magazine. The 17-year-old international magazine is dedicated to the ”Stories Behind the Movies” and is published quarterly.
Milla will be based out of the Maitland Primrose Group’s Los Angeles office, working closely with Elliot Kotek, the Editor in Chief of Moving Pictures magazine.
This announcement comes on the heels of Moving Pictures magazine’s recent partnerships with Corbis and AOL. Moving Pictures magazine and Corbis partnered at the Toronto Film Festival earlier this month capturing filmed interviews and content to be used on Movingpicturesmagazine.com and across AOL’s online network.
The hiring of Milla marks a new direction for the magazine as they transition into a quarterly publication, hire a new sales team and increase the overall visibility of Moving Pictures magazine. Maitland Primrose Group also recently announced a new theatrical and DVD label in conjunction with Kids First! that will be part of the Maitland Primrose Film Distribution (MPFD) arm.
