Apple hires Sony executive for video content; 50 doctors already working in Cupertino

Another week, another important contract for Apple. As the Hollywood Reporter, Ma attracted the executive to its land Tamara Hunter, who spent the last few years as director of casting (ie, issues related to casting and hiring actors) at Sony Pictures.

At Apple, Tamara plays a similar role, dealing with contracts and relationships with artists in front of the cameras. She responds to the heads of Ma's original content division, Jamie Erlicht and Zack van Amburg.

Some of Hunter's co-star films include "Venom", "Jumanji: Welcome Selva" and "Hotel Transilvnia". Prior to her time at Sony, she had previously worked at 20th Century Fox and other smaller Hollywood distributors, meaning no, we are not talking about any amateurs in the area.


While ?Apple Studios? is building a strong corporate structure, another growing area in Cupertino is also taking shape very quickly: health. According to information from CNBC, Apple would already have about 50 doctors hired and working directly on the development of new technologies and resources for the company's products and services.

The report notes that the work of these doctors is still largely kept secret: as much as some indicate that they have recently started working at Apple on their LinkedIn profiles, none of them reveals exactly the position they hold or the roles they play in the company. It is not known whether this is related to some new and mysterious feature that is going to leave the health area at some point or if Apple is simply trying to remain discreet in the segment.

Despite this, it is known that there is a great diversity in the specialty areas of professionals hired by Apple: we have cardiologists like Dr. Alexis Beatty, pediatricians like Dr. Rajiv Kumar and orthopedic surgeons like Dr. Sharat Kusuma, the latter, , is coordinating Apple's collaboration initiatives with medical equipment manufacturer Zimmer Biomet.

What kind of good things do I get out of this mood? For now there is no way to know, but the future should hold some very interesting surprises in the area.
