Adam Goodman is President of Le Vision Entertainment (LeVE). In this position, Adam is responsible for delivering and shaping cutting-edge original content for LeEco’s next-generation English-language audiences. He also oversees television, VR and digital content for LeVE.
For more than a decade, Adam ran the film divisions for both DreamWorks Studios and Paramount Pictures, leading both companies to their highest grossing years on record in 2007 and 2011. He helped launch or grow some of the biggest global film franchises including, Transformers, Mission Impossible, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, G.I. Joe, Star Trek, Jackass, SpongeBob Squarepants, World War Z, and Anchorman.
Under Adam’s leadership, each of those franchises had their most successful installments. He also helped create the incredibly profitable micro-budget business with groundbreaking successes like, The Paranormal Activity franchise, Jackass 3D, The Devil Inside, and Bad Grandpa.
“I am very grateful for the chance to collaborate with Mr. Zhang and LeEco … a next-generation company with a platform that’s not limited to traditional distribution.”
Following the enormous success of the first Paranormal Activity, Adam spearheaded Paramount’s micro-budget division, Insurge Pictures, and introduced its label with the $100 million-dollar-plus-grossing film, Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. He also created Paramount’s in-house animation division, which launched its first film, Spongebob 2: Sponge Out of Water, to a gross of over $300 million worldwide.
In fall 2015, Adam followed up his string of successes by launching Dichotomy Creative Group, now part of Le Vision Entertainment (LeVE). As president of LeVE reporting to LeEco Vice Chairman Zhang Zhao, Adam leads LeVE to employ a filmmaking strategy that mirrors Dichotomy’s approach to producing tentpole films for global audiences, while also utilizing the Dichotomy Micro Studios banner in the lucrative micro-budget film business.
Under Adam’s leadership, LeVE is also set to aggressively pursue and acquire new IP, nurture emerging voices, and develop material for a global audience. These efforts include fully financing and co-producing films, aligning with studio partners on distribution, slate financing and/or co-financing opportunities.
