Fullscreen, the over-the-top multichannel service tailored for young consumers, last week hired Michael Goldfine to the post of chief content officer.
Goldfine, who joins Fullscreen from RockStream Studios, a company he founded in 2012 and is credited with creating the feature film Camp Takota, will focus on overseeing the development and production of premium scripted and unscripted content for Fullscreen. Prior to founding RSS, Goldfine launched AEG Digital Media, and also produced and directed shows for Warner Bros. Television, Fox and Fremantle.
"Michael brings years of production experience, a contagious entrepreneurial spirit and a unique understanding of digital talent to Fullscreen," said George Strompolos, Fullscreen's founder and CEO. "We are thrilled to join forces with someone as passionate about the future of entertainment as we are."
“There's a huge opportunity ahead,” Goldfine added. “And with Fullscreen’s resources, talented team and vast network, it's a perfect place to continue to change the way content is made and distributed.”
In September, Otter Media, the online joint venture of The Chernin Group and AT&T, agreed to acquire a majority stake in Fullscreen.
