Jason Blum is an Academy Award-nominated and two-time Emmy and Peabody Award-winning producer. His multi-media company, Blumhouse Productions, pioneered a new model of studio filmmaking: producing high-quality micro-budget films. Blumhouse has produced films like the highly profitable The Purge, Insidious, Ouija, Paranormal Activity, and Happy Death Day franchises, which have grossed more than $2 billion at the worldwide box office. Their model of low-budget thrillers made Blumhouse’s 2017 film Get Out the highest-grossing film of 2017.
Blum, who was nominated for an Academy Award for producing ”Whiplash,” was named to Vanity Fair’s 2015 and 2016 New Establishment lists and received the Producer of the Year Award at CinemaCon in 2016.
In television, Blum won Emmys for producing HBO’s ”The Normal Heart” and ”The Jinx” and two Peabodys for ”The Jinx” and the documentary ”How To Dance in Ohio.” Blumhouse produced ”Sharp Objects” for HBO starring Amy Adams based on Gillian Flynn’s bestselling novel.
Blumhouse has recently expanded its multi-platform offerings which include BH Tilt, a releasing label that takes advantage of new marketing strategies, Blumhouse Books, a publishing imprint with Doubleday, the digital genre network CryptTV, Blumhouse, a consumer-facing site for all things scary and Blumhouse Live, which produces live scary events for companies like AB InBev.
