Kodak has appointed Steve Bellamy as its new president of motion picture and entertainment. Based in Los Angeles, Bellamy will be responsible for growing and deepening Kodak’s relationships with creative luminaries and business leaders in the entertainment industry, working on creative advocacy programmes, creating partnerships and new business models, and developing Kodak-branded solutions for the entertainment industry.

A serial entrepreneur and award-winning media creator, Bellamy founded The Tennis Channel, The Ski Channel, The Surf Channel and The Skate Channel television networks. A lover of film and music, he is a prolific creator in both mediums. As a writer/director, his movies have won over 40 global film festivals, from Amsterdam to Canada to Mexico and the United States. He has personally won six best director awards including the Las Vegas International Film Festival. In all, he has shepherded over 10,000 hours of content creation. As a songwriter and recording artist, Bellamy has toured the US, had singles on commercial radio and his work is regularly found on film and television. He has spent the last six years as CEO of Action Sport Networks and will remain the chairman of that business.

“I’m thrilled and relieved that Kodak remains committed to keeping film alive and well,” said filmmaker JJ Abrams. “It only feels right that film remain an available option in the world of filmmaking. And Steve Bellamy is an ideal talent to help realise this priority.”

Bellamy will work with Andrew Evenski, Kodak president and general manager of entertainment and commercial film, to create deeper relationships with Hollywood’s film and television studios. Both will report to Steven Overman, president of the consumer and film division.
