About Sobul, Primes & Schenkel
Schenkel launched the firm’s business management practice back in the ’80s, when the new tech disrupting the entertainment industry was VHS and Betamax. Today, his personal clients include an Emmy-winning director-writer-actor, showrunners, execs, entertainment companies and some of the most high-profile talent agents in the biz.
Levitt, who joined the firm in 1996, has a client roster highlighted by a pair of Oscar-winners (an actor and a writer), a bestselling author, numerous business execs and accounting outsourcing services for a film production and financing group.
A 30-year industry vet, Botten came aboard in 2019. She specializes in music tour budgeting and accounting and royalty accounting. Additionally, she manages the firm’s day-to-day business management practice.
AI is our friend: As the overseer of the firm’s operations, Botten has a vested interest in the potential of AI and other cutting-edge tech. “All of that reduces time that staff spends on tasks,” she says. “Our relationship with our clients is based on personal trust and our ability to understand their needs, and I’m eagerly waiting for AI to be able to detect fraud, which is one of our biggest industry nightmares.”
