Steve Golin, the founder and CEO of Anonymous Content and co-founder and former CEO of Propaganda Films, passed away peacefully late Sunday night in Los Angeles after a long battle with cancer. The revered film and TV producer, who won the 2016 Best Picture Oscar for Spotlight, was 64. His loss will be felt far and wide within the business.

Quite simply Golin, who also produced The Revenant and Eternal Sunshine Of the Spotless Mind and executive produced HBO’s True Detective, was a towering figure in the independent film and TV space. The multi-disciplinary and innovative companies he created became models for aspiring film and TV producers and managers who wanted to go beyond the status quo. It’s rare to find producers who excel both in film and TV but Golin was one of them. And he was even more than that. Both firms he launched became an attractive proposition for investors, and a few years ago Anonymous got substantial backing from the Emerson Collective, the organization led by Laurene Powell Jobs.

Golin graduated from the Tisch School of the Arts at New York University in 1976 and attended the AFI Conservatory. With partner Joni Sighvatsson, he launched Propaganda Films, a talent management, advertising, and video production company, in 1986. The duo built Propaganda into the largest music video and commercial production company in the world. They are credited with discovering such young video directors who would successfully transition to features as David Fincher, Michael Bay, Spike Jonze Antoine Fuqua, and Gore Verbinski. Golin and Sighvatsson sold Propaganda Films to PolyGram, which was subsequently bought by Seagram in 1998.

Golin exited Propaganda in 1999 and in early 2000, he launched his next management/production company, Anonymous Content, guiding it into becoming a management, production and commercial powerhouse.
