Jeff Robinov’s Studio 8 Expands Executive Team

Jeff Robinov has hired a quartet of executives for his newly minted Studio 8 production company.

Studio 8 closed its distribution deal with Sony on Sept. 8 with plans to release six films a year. Robinov, the former Warner Bros. studio chief, said at that point that he expected to raise $1 billion from financiers and a partnership with China’s Fosun Group.

Shaun Williams has been hired as chief financial officer after serving as the senior VP of finance for GK Films. Lindsey Bayman, Paramount’s former exec VP of motion picture business affairs, will run business affairs.

Mark Bakshi, Paramount’s former worldwide president of feature production, will oversee physical production. He served as executive producer on “Foxcatcher,” “World War Z” and “Moneyball” and supervised over 150 feature film productions at Paramount, including “Transformers,” the “Mission: Impossible” franchise, “Saving Private Ryan” and “Titanic.”

Kimberly LoCascio will oversee all aspects of visual effects, post production and 3D. She previously held senior VFX posts at Legendary and Paramount.

Robert Brassel, Jon Silk and Chris Goldberg had been previously announced as Studio 8 hires.
