Hollywood’s New Leaders of 2023
Variety includes Amy Bickersteth and Ben Moskowitz on their list of Hollywood’s new leaders. The list highlights the creatives and executives in film, TV, music, agencies, management, law, and talent newly emergent at the forefront of the entertainment industry.
Amy Bickersteth has gathered a global client list of young scripted-entertainment talent. A Virginia native who was raised in Lagos, Nigeria, and London, she has a roster of clients that are at least bi-national, including Natalie Portman’s and Sophie Mas’ MountainA, a production company behind the Cannes competition title “May December”; Paris-based producer/financier Anton; British-Pakistani playwright Maatin; British-Ghanaian hyphenates Caleb Azumah Nelson, an author, photographer and filmmaker, and Taiye Selasi, author of “Ghana Must Go.”
West Africa rising: “West African culture is so well represented and respected in music now, but we still have a way to go in film and television,” she says. “I want to be a part of bringing the Nigerian ‘Squid Game’ or ‘Call My Agent’ to global audiences. In fact, I’m actively working on that.”
Ben Moskowitz started out aiming to be a producer, but he now enjoys his place in the inner circle of his producer clients, crafting deals that ensure their vision can be realized. In the last year, he’s supported documentary “Pamela,” from clients Tripod Media and Dorothy Street Pictures, and JTS Prods.’ recently canceled Apple TV+ series “The Problem With Jon Stewart.” “We had the opportunity to see a completely different side of Pamela Anderson and ‘TPWJS,’” he says, “because it pushes us to think more critically about big topics.” Newly promoted to counsel, his other clients include Jason Hehir and Little Monster Films (“Wild Life”).
Hard truths: “Even with the best preparation and planning, people and real-life circumstances are unpredictable, so the key is staying open to understanding the situation and focusing on solutions,” he says.”
