Adam Stone has left Roy Lee’s Vertigo Entertainment to become president of entertainment at Phenomenon, a strategic marketing and branding agency that is branching out to develop television shows and films.
Stone is leaving the production company responsible for “The Lego Movie” and its impending sequels to a startup connected to Phenomenon, the marketing agency led by Krishnan Menon that has collaborated with companies like Starwood, Crate & Barrel, Vitaminwater, Coca Cola and the Los Angeles Times.
Phenomenon plans to use its marketing expertise and consumer research prowess to find appealing stories for theatrical and television release. The Los Angeles-based firm said it relies on a proprietary “digital research platform” that gives it access to millions of consumers to measure their “attitudes, wants and needs.”
The company plans to turn those into stories ready for production. Warner Bros. will get a first look at Phenomenon’s television and film offerings. »
