The separation of management/ production company The Collective has been completed. Founding partners, veteran managers Jeff Golenberg and Sam Maydew, have launched a new management/production company named Silver Lining Entertainment. Joining them is the entire film and TV management arm of The Collective that includes Matt Goldman, Christina Gualazzi and Jason Shapiro. The company has opened offices on South Beverly Drive in Beverly Hills. The plan for Silver Lining is to continue to represent film and TV talent as well as continue to expand the roster of personalities, writers, directors and musicians. In management structure, Silver Lining will emulate the culture of Seattle entertainment software/technology company Valve, which has no hierarchy, with all staffers collaborating as peers. (more…)
