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

Director of Operations

Whether it’s while mastering our bespoke rights management software, overseeing festival run coordination, or making sure occasional office lunches don’t become too infrequent, the devastatingly-charming Carissa makes kicking ass look like par for the course.

jaden-2020-resize

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-2020-resize

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 Temple Guard to the Jedi Archives that are Shoreline’s servers.

DemilleByMacy-2022-resize

STEVEN DEMILLE

Head of Marketing

With a breathless résumé that includes successful executive experience at A&E Home Entertainment, Fox Lorber, A-Pix Entertainment, First Look Media, and Image Entertainment, Steven brings a wealth of proven marketing savvy to the table, and if he’s got an ego about it, he does a splendid job of hiding it.

Andrei-2022-resize

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

Although nicknamed “The Quietest” by his colleagues, don’t let that fool you. Aaron’s kicks and graphic tees may be louder than he is, but he lets his relentless work seeing films distributed around the world speak for itself.

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.

Hannah-HS-3

HANNAH BEUTEL

Administrative Specialist

This native Minnesotan has absolutely no interest in the lovable, perennially-shortcoming Vikings football team; perhaps that’s because she‘s preoccupied with making short work of whatever task, no matter how complex, is thrown her way.

Nate-HS-6

NATE O'GANE

Editor

Novels could be written about Mr. O’Gane. They wouldn’t be very good or riveting books, but technically, with a lot of agony and word-padding, they could be written. Kidding aside, Nate is a hugely-talented guy who takes our content to the next level.

EDEN-HS-2

EDEN WOOLWORTH

Asset Integration Specialist

Her name might sound plucked from a Great American Novel, and if it were, it’d be appropriate, as Eden has dramatically upgraded our systems to accommodate an ever-expanding landscape of content.

Kevin-2021-b

KEVIN NELLIS

IT

One of the nicest tech guys you’ll ever meet. Kevin uses his experience in education (i.e., a concrete jungle teeming with untamed youths) to remain cool and collected amidst even the most vexing troubleshooting.

eric-2021-b

ERIC ONTIVEROS

Staff Accountant

If most accountants play numeric lullabies on acoustic guitar, Eric plays mindblowing jazz-inspired guitar riffs on a Strat hooked up to a chain of a hundred effect boxes.

Lisa-Macy-2

LISA BAILEY

Ari-Macy

ARI ROJAS

Parker-Web02

PARKER COLIMA

Graphic Designer

Parker is one of the few human beings on Earth that actually enjoys going to school, so instead of giving her projects, we give her “assignments” and “homework.” So far, she’s getting nothing but A-plusses.

Yosmel-02

YOSMEL ARAUJO
