Andy Vick, Co-Founder
Andy Vick is Co-Founder of Surreal and Co-President of Virtual Reality & Immersive Entertainment at STX, a global media company that specializes in the development, production, marketing and distribution of talent-driven films, television, and digital media content.
Vick focuses on Surreal’s content development, talent partnerships and programming strategy across multiple content categories and distribution platforms. His extensive background in development and broad executive and talent relationships is key to the company’s content initiative, which is built on empowering a diverse pool of storytellers and the world’s most popular online personalities to create immersive entertainment experiences for consumers worldwide that are engaging, commercially viable and audience-driven.
Prior to launching Surreal, Vick was head of development at Maker Studios, the largest distributor of short form content in the world. He packaged and developed original series with Maker’s most popular influencers alongside traditional Hollywood partners, transforming the company’s content strategy. After The Walt Disney Company acquired Maker in early 2014, Vick continued to build the bridge between digital and linear by selling over a dozen long-form television programs developed with the company’s high profile digital talent.
Previous to Maker, Vick wrote and produced television and film for companies such as DreamWorks-20th Century Fox with credits including NEIGHBORS FROM HELL on TBS, as well as rewrites for DreamWorks’ animated feature franchises, MADAGASCAR and SHREK. Vick sold a number of original pilots, including a half-hour comedy to FOX in 2010. His first industry job was a production assistant at J.J. Abram’s company, Bad Robot.
