Sentient Pictures International, LLC (“SPI”) is a global media company based in Dallas and Los Angeles with a focus in development, sales, finance and production.
For over a decade, Sentient Entertainment has been one of the leading boutique management and production companies whose past and present clients include David Cronenberg, Pierre Morel, Terrence Howard, Shekhar Kapur, William Friedkin, Atom Egoyan and many more. Its credits include STX’s “Peppermint”, Paramount’s “Overdrive”, Focus’ “Maps to the Stars” and FX’s “Feud: Bette and Joan” (which garnered 18 Emmy and 4 Golden Globe nominations) for Ryan Murphy.
SPI’s central focus is the development, acquisition, production, sales and finance of content for the international marketplace, as well as domestic studios and streamers.
With offices in London and Los Angeles, SPI’s international operations are spearheaded by former Relativity COO (and television president) Andrew Marcus. Physical production is overseen by SPI’s EVP of Production Andrew Schefter.
With the alignment of their creative, physical and financial assets, SPI aims to become a driving force in the future of content creation, both in terms of digital artistry and conventional filmmaking. Its ability to develop, produce, sell and finance its own content sets it apart from most other mini-major studios and sales companies.
