Hello,
My name is Amy Sharman and I represent Deschutes Brewery, whose flagship beer, Mirror Pond Pale Ale, is featured in Rise of Planet of the Apes about 3/4 of the way through the film. I realize this is a long shot, but I am trying to figure out who decided to put our beer in the film as we did NOT pay for a product placement....and I would like to contact them regarding a possible sponsorship deal. Given I am not part of the entertainment industry I am finding it a bit difficult to find emails/phone numbers of people who worked on the film. Seeing as you seem to be an industry insider, if you could give me a hint as who to contact it would be much appreciated.
