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 15 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

VP 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 …

Vanessa-HS

VANESSA FUSS

VP Communications

Despite being fluent in only one language, Vanessa is the key liaison between our filmmakers, buyers, and the Shoreline team itself. She has countless further responsibilities, but listing all of them here would be disrespectful toward your bandwidth.

Michelle-HS3

MICHELLE WELCH

Director of Sales

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

Bobby

ROBERT TEH

Senior Manager of Distribution

With a background in film, art, and breathessly correcting people’s grammar, Bobby’s passion and attention to detail make him our go-to guy when it comes to priming our films for countless platforms in the ever-evolving digital distribution landscape.

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.

Carissa

CARISSA GAITHER

Manager of Festivals

The devastatingly-charming Carissa is our self-declared Queen of Festivals, and we don’t hold her hubris 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.

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.
