Literary managers Britton Rizzio, Noah Rosen and Greg Shephard have split from Circle of Confusion to form their own management and production firm, Writ Large. They still are locking in clients who will follow them to the new firm.
“We are extremely grateful for our time at Circle of Confusion,” the three said in a statement. “Forming Writ Large came from the desire to create a community of artists and to unite our skills as managers and producers.”
Rizzio began her career as an assistant and development executive for Gigi Pritzker. She went on to work as a producer in music videos and commercials before going back to film and television as a literary manager in 2007. Rizzio recently produced the Jesse Eisenberg-Kristen Stewart film American Ultra, written by Max Landis.
Rosen started as a development executive at DIC Films. He became a manager soon thereafter, starting up the management division of Ignite Entertainment. Rosen went on to launch his own management production company, where he was a producer of Dan In Real Life. He joined Circle of Confusion in 2005 and reps writers and directors in both film and television.
Shephard began his career as a TV executive at ABC before becoming a TV agent at Broder Webb Chervin Silbermann, later moving to ICM. Shephard became a manager in 2009 and has focused on representing writers and directors primarily in television.
“We will miss them and wish them the best of luck in their new venture,” Circle of Confusion said in a statement.
