Glazer, former EVP at Atlas Entertainment, said today he’s launched Trimax Media to develop feature films, television, digital content and applications. The company has an overhead deal with a private equity investor and a production financing alliance with Toronto-based Dominant Entertainment, led by financier Michael Gianfriddo. This strategic initiative, per the announcement, will leverage Glazer’s ability to originate, package and market films combined with the financial strengths of Dominant Entertainment.
“The partnership provides a strong independent voice to produce programming, films and digital content with sound financing models,” Glazer said. “It is our intent to seek out rising talent both in front of and behind the camera, providing quality and fiscally sound projects with mass appeal. DE and Michael raise the bar in terms of professional relationships and integrity. I look forward to building this business with him and his team,” concluded Glazer.
The joint venture will focus on financing and producing up to three films annually, with budgets ranging from $5 million to $40 million. Instrumental to DE is strategic financial partner, Jesus Lorenzo Nevarez, whose background and capabilities include 27 years of international private equity in various verticals. Nevarez is integral to DE’s slate of properties and long-term growth. He currently oversees all financing directly with Gianfriddo. Multiple award-winning writer Diana Kemp, current head of development for DE, will consult on all Trimax and DE joint projects.
