EVP at Blumhouse – A Story About Introspection
I’m an EVP at Blumhouse and when I think of my role, I think of a bit of fun as we look to the future and how we’re going to evolve the company and the industry overall. We are going to be getting into a much cleaner and more open ecosystem moving forward, and I think a lot of that is going to have to do with this transition.
When I first got to Blumhouse as a senior VP, I remember talking to the team. I remember talking to many and discussing the challenges for many of you, and I think it was during that conversation that I decided to step back and spend much more of my time with myself. After all, I’m a big believer in introspection.
As much as I like working for Blumhouse, and as long as I stay in the company, I’m more and more likely to be alone. I’m not a person who likes to be alone. I like to work well with others, and I’m not someone who likes people to get together and talk about everything.
So, as I was talking about the future, I said that I was going to find my own place in the company, I was going to figure out how to make my own life, and it’s going to require a whole lot of introspection.
To be clear, I’m not saying I am going to leave Blumhouse. We have a great team and a very bright future ahead of us, so I’m going to make the best of it.
But I do need to be more introspective, and I’m going to do that with a focus not just on the future, but on the past. So, to that end, this is a story about how I made myself a better person and how I got to my point of being a top EVP at Blumhouse and to a point where I know who I am and how I want to be.
I’m about to show you how I went from being an employee of Blumhouse, to a senior VP at Blumhouse, to being a part of the Blumhouse executive team.
EVP – scripted and non-scripted programming at Blumhouse Television
A new way to tell stories in a way that is compelling to viewers with all of the best elements of today’s television production—storytelling, visuals, production values, emotion, humor, and dialogue. And it’s all on the web.
The next generation of television will have to find a way to tell stories in a way that is compelling to viewers with “all” of these elements if they want to stay competitive in today’s world.
The good thing is that technology is making it easier to do exactly that. The bad thing is that the way we tell these stories is changing, at least in the U.
This is not a knock on today’s writers and editors—it’s simply a matter of time before they are replaced by machines. This is why it is essential for writers to know how to tell stories in a compelling way that will be the same for the television audience on the web as it is for the TV audiences in homes around the world.
Blumhouse, the entertainment company that produces TV shows such as “Shameless” and “Gilligan’s Island,” is a pioneer in the new kind of storytelling that will be the next generation of the storytelling experience. It came up with this strategy by realizing that the way we tell stories in our own homes is changing and that it’s up to us to adapt.
By working with a global team of writers and editors for its TV, film and animation shows, Blumhouse is also tapping into the power of the web for its web series. The company, which is based in Los Angeles, has more than 160 original web series, which run on its website and are available around the world for viewing.
“We realized that there was great potential, both in storytelling and in the web,” said Brad Anderson, chief creative officer at Blumhouse. “In this world where the pace of innovation is so fast, it is so important to know about everything coming out of the creative process. In the past, I had worked on an agency’s creative process, which was all about the client and the agency.
A conversation with Ben and Mary Blumhouse.
I’d been trying to write about Ben Blumhouse for the past five years, but had always fallen into the habit of not giving his name. Maybe that’s a virtue, perhaps not. If you’d like to read the transcript of the conversation that I had with him, or the story of how I decided to go digging through the personal information he’s kept in the bank account he created to hide his identity, you can read those here.
I’m now writing about him because I was approached by his daughter, Mary, who asked me to contribute to this article “on my behalf”. She’s in the process of changing that. It’s not easy to get your name out, but she’s doing it.
By the way, he actually named his daughter, Mary Blumhouse, the year his daughter was born, so she’s not that young.
When I talked to Ben, he told me he was born in 1956 but grew up in York, Ontario, Canada, which isn’t so far from Toronto, Canada, which is where I grew up.
We chatted for over an hour about the history of Montreal’s streets when he was growing up. I asked him if it was easier or harder to get a job in the city than he expected.
“You are in Montreal,” he said. “It’s pretty easy to get a job. You just need to have some talent and some education. You could take out a loan to live in the city. You could get a job but you’re not making a salary.
“Do you know why it’s a problem?” I asked him. “Because it doesn’t pay in Canada.
We spent a while talking about other things.

The show is currently airing its seventh season of the acclaimed series “The Vampire Diaries” (ABC, Mondays at 8/7c).
After spending the summer getting a little older, and in order to look better, Elena Castillo had what she considers “a pretty good tan”. Her beauty was brought to the forefront of the show when she was out in the sun for a short part during the seventh season premiere. Many viewers commented on the fact that Elena was all, well, pale — but she’s not. As Season 7 comes to a close we bring you some of our favorite scenes from the season.
“I saw her with a tan. And it was so pale… it was not even tan.
“Elena was pale…but she’s not that pale. I’m going to go and check her out, just… I don’t want to… you don’t want it to be too much of a shocker.
“Wow, just wow.
“She was just pale.
“I am so not getting used to this. Just wow, she’s so pale… I’m sorry Elena.
“She didn’t look any different… she looked like she had just gotten out of the shower.
“That’s like how I looked… that’s how I looked.
“That is so different — at least, that’s how it looked to me.
“I was like a total wreck.
