Blumhouse Productions, founded by Jason Blum, is a multi-media production company that has pioneered a new model of studio filmmaking- producing high-quality micro-budget films for wide release. Since its launch, Blumhouse has produced more than 30 feature films including the highly profitable Paranormal ActivityInsidiousThe Purge and Sinister franchises. For television, Blumhouse is working on both scripted and non-scripted shows including projects for Syfy, HBO (The Normal Heart) and MTV (Eye Candy). Blumhouse previously executive produced Stranded for Syfy and The River for ABC.

The Blumhouse model began with the original Paranormal Activity, which was made for $15,000, released by Paramount Pictures, and grossed close to $200 million worldwide, making it the most profitable film in the history of Hollywood. Following the same low budget model, Sinister with Lionsgate/Summit opened to over 6 times it's budget on opening weekend. The Purge, Blumhouse's first production under its first-look deal with Universal Pictures, opened to more than $34 million on its opening weekend with a budget of just $3 million. Insidious: Chapter Two grossed over $41 million on its opening weekend with just a $5 million budget. Blumhouse's upcoming micro-budget wide releases include The Purge: Anarchy and Ouija for Universal and Paranormal Activity 5 for Paramount. Whiplash with Sony Pictures Classics, which won both the Grand Jury and Audience prizes at Sundance, will be out this fall.
