Lindsay Schwartz

Director of Development @ FullyFormed Entertainment
Saturday 7/25
High-concept features that fit into the horror/thriller genres, w/strong, emotional character components. Movies need to feel like they're a theatrical "event" and have to be seen in theaters with an audience vs. waiting to see it on Netflix.
Pitch Tips

Right off the bat, hook me with a clear and unique concept, and then guide me through the character's journey.

About Your Host

Lindsay Schwartz is the Director of Development at FullyFormed Entertainment. FullyFormed is the new venture from Brad Fuller and Andrew Form, who co-founded Platinum Dunes with Michael Bay in 2001. While at Platinum Dunes, they produced both film and television. Notable series include "Black Sails" on Starz, "The Last Ship" on TNT, and currently, "Jack Ryan," Amazon’s most-watched show. On the feature side, they are responsible for some of the biggest genre films of the last decade, including THE PURGE franchise, the OUIJA movies, and the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES movies. Lindsay began working for Fuller and Form in November of 2016 under the Platinum Dunes banner. During that time, they produced and released A QUIET PLACE, one of the most commercially successful original-concept genre movies in years. In August of 2019, Lindsay joined Form and Fuller when they left Platinum Dunes to create FullyFormed Entertainment and signed a three-year deal with Paramount Pictures. They are eagerly anticipating the release of A QUIET PLACE 2, and are developing numerous features and series with studios such as Paramount, Sony, MGM, Universal, Miramax, and Amazon, amongst others. Before FullyFormed and Platinum Dunes, Lindsay worked at Paramount Pictures and Happy Madison Productions
