Killer Films Merges With Glass Elevator Media to Form Killer Content
Christine Vachon and Pamela Koffler's indie film production company Killer Films and IP incubator Glass Elevator Media are merging to form Killer Content.
Glass Elevator CEO Adrienne Becker becomes CEO of the New York-based Killer Content, while Vachon and Koffler will serve as co-presidents.
Killer Content will focus on producing content for a variety of platforms, relying on longstanding relationships with established independent talent and emerging directors and stars.
Vachon and Koffler's Killer Films is one of the most recognized players in the indie space. Over the past 15 years, Killer Films has produced over 70 films, including Daniel Radcliffe's Kill Your Darlings and the Truman Capote biopic Infamous.
Glass Elevator, opening its doors for business two years ago and focusing on multiplatform content, co-owns an intellectual property library that includes Park Slope, USA from Katie Goodman, She's So Boss with Jacqueline Emerson, Real Talk with Devin Lytle, Kidnapping for Jesus by Elizabeth Rodgers, The Supermarket by Rhonda Mitrani and the musical Friends Like These.
"Killer Content will strive to make the business of creative content less risky and more sustainable while maintaining the high creative storytelling standards that Christine and Pam have set," said Becker in a statement. "The combined portfolio will be broader and include a variety of distribution platforms, reaching larger audiences, but always with moments that matter and connect."
Added Vachon: "Pam and I have spent the last 20 years building a truly independent company that champions provocative stories, bold new ideas and auteur filmmakers. We are excited to pair those values with a forward-thinking digital company like Glass Elevator as we continue to progress in this evolving media landscape."
Additionally, Killer Content announced that Union Editorial, a leading global creative editorial firm, is an investor in the company. Advisory board members include Union Editorial president Michael Raimondi, veteran producer Lauren Zalaznick, John Sloss of Sloss Eckhouse LawCo/Cinetic Media, music producer and Lalabella Alliance CEO Gordon Williams and Inggroups Inc. chairman Samuel Ing.
