The Canadian Media Production Association (CMPA) elected four new directors and re-elected the rest of its board for a two-year term, the CMPA said. In a release Sunday, the CMPA said it elected new directors Charles Bishop from Six Eleven Media, Paul Bronfman from Comweb Group, Bob Crowe from Angel Entertainment, and Joe Novak from 1400 Months. They will replace the departing Douglas Barrett from PS Production Services Ltd., Don Carmody of Don Carmody Productions Inc., Michael Donovan from DHX Media Ltd., and Mark Musselman of Serendipity Point Films. The CMPA said David MacLeod, from Big Motion Pictures, was re-elected to chair the board. Another 19 board members were also re-elected. “The incoming Board of Directors will serve a two-year term commencing this month and ending in June 2015,” the CMPA release said. During that time, the CMPA, which represents more than 350 independent production companies across the country, will renegotiate its terms of trade agreement with private broadcasters. The current terms of trade agreement, signed in 2011, expires in 2014 and outlines how broadcasters and independent producers share revenues and distribute licence fees. MacLeod said in a statement Sunday that the CMPA board will also roll out a “strategic plan for the future.” “While there are challenges in our industry, the Board will be focusing on innovative business models to empower CMPA members to capitalize on opportunities in new and existing markets,” he said.
