About
Team

THE FILM-WORKERS

We’re one big, happy family.

Morris-HS

MORRIS RUSKIN

Founder & Chairman

As accomplished as he is tall in stature, Morris has produced more than 50 films, including titles that have resulted in Oscar nominations, top-tier festival openings, and some classic one-liners (“Coffee is for closers”). Read the full rundown here…

Sam-HS

SAM EIGEN

CEO

If you’re lucky enough to catch him on the rare day he isn’t travelling the corners of the earth to find and build relationships with distributors, broadcasters, and festival programmers, he’d be delighted to give you a ride on his Harley.

Mace

STEVE MACY

President

With the unchecked power that comes with 20 years of employment at a single company, “Mace” can’t resist meddling in every aspect of the business’s operation, to his colleagues’ frequent consternation and occasional relief.

Melody-HS

MELODY DJAVADI

Vice President, Acquisitions

Melody not only determines what content we acquire, but serves as head of contract negotiations, and to top things off, she attends multiple markets a year in a sales capacity. If things ever go south, we know where to first point the finger …

Michelle-HS3

MICHELLE WELCH

Vice President, Sales

With a knack for whatever you throw at her, it took Michelle no time at all to become our go-to gal for getting deals done. The cherry on top? Her very presence profoundly elevates our industry-wide karaoke reputation.

Carissa

CARISSA GAITHER

Manager of Festivals

The devastatingly-charming Carissa is our self-declared Queen of Festivals, and we don’t hold it against her, because she’s all that and more! She relishes the opportunity to work with filmmakers and programmers as she pairs our films with thousands of festivals around the world.

jaden

JADEN BAILEY

Delivery Manager

Jaden is the guy that brings his VR headset to a house party. That techno-mindset serves him well as he optimizes how we interface with each distributor and platform’s unique ingestion system.

Ky

KY GUERRERO

Manager of Digital Assets

Ky tends to view all things through the prism of the Star Wars Universe. On that note, think of her as the the Temple Guard to the Jedi Archives that are Shoreline’s servers.

Nolan

NOLAN SEARS

Staff Accountant

The universe is divided into two sets of people: those who enjoy working in Excel and those who enjoy riding motorcycles. Nolan, then, is the unicornesque liaison between those two worlds.

Andrei-HS__

ANDREI DIMA

Chief Information Officer

Like a contemporary Tarzan of the Apes, Andrei has been raised by a gaggle of computers, and he speaks only their language. We are at this young man’s complete and utter mercy, a fact he obnoxiously refuses to allow us to forget.

Aaron

AARON BERNALES

Asset Administrator

Also known around the office as the silent protagonist, we’re grateful that Aaron even allowed us to put his picture and bio up here. Before we push our luck, let’s just say that he’s an instrumental part of ensuring that our content reaches the broadest exposure possible.

Liz

LIZ AXLEY

Content Operations

Her work is so vital and across-the-board that if you were to ask Liz’s co-workers to describe her job, they’d be silently dumbstruck.

Kaitlyn

KAITLYN HINOJOSA

Graphics Coordinator

While Kaitlyn certainly has her faults–namely, the horrible syrupy things she does to what begins as a perfectly-good cup of black coffee–her ability to create movie artwork that reconciles the commercial and artistic makes her quite the find indeed.

RicardoSudenly

RICARDO VERGARA & SUDENLY BELLO

Lingual Editors

Once famously dubbed a “1-inch-tall barrier,” Ricardo and Sudenly prefer to see the role of subtitles and captions in an increasingly-interconnected world as a bridge between films and their widest audience possible.
