A legacy since 1978
SuperCine's roots date back to June 1978, when best friends Bob Seidler and Larry Michalski founded the little post-production company in Burbank, CA. The dynamic duo and former Vietnam War photographers made a name for themselves in the film lab sector, working exclusively with Super-8 film. Bob and Larry built strong relationships with their clients by putting an emphasis on care.
After a great run the two moved on to bigger things and SuperCine’s doors closed forever in 1992. Larry moved to Fotokem and Bob went to Universal Studios. The two ultimately retired as executives after a long, successful entertainment career.
In 2017, Jordan Schulz, Cal State Northridge CTVA graduate, and grandson to Bob revived the SuperCine name. While in college, Jordan built a strong network with fellow students Christopher Walsh and Aria Jackson. The three felt that in order to succeed in a rapidly growing industry, they would need a solid team. The SuperCine Network For Emerging Filmmakers laid the foundation for that team. The network served as an outlet for aspiring, ambitious filmmakers to collaborate, learn and share best practices, and push the envelope of creativity. Its members would champion a culture of care.
On May 6th, 2018, SuperCine Entertainment, a company built on care, would emerge with a mission to deliver ambitious, thought-provoking work to a worldwide audience.
