Larry Shapiro / Founder:
Larry Shapiro has a successful 20+ year track record of managing and producing creative in all forms of media and pioneering the convergence between Data and Pixie Dust.
While managing online creators, Larry got the inspiration to create A Separate Entity as he noticed the commercial landscape changing and a new generation of directors emerging who know how to produce great cinematics but also understood the value of online analytics and producing for a generation of consumer who watches entertainment online..
No stranger to cutting edge directors, Larry started his career producing at Propaganda Films for some of the biggest directors in Music Videos. Always working with creatives who reached the youth, Larry moved on to create the industry’s first and leading Games Division for Creative Artists Agency (CAA). During his tenure at CAA, Larry conceived of and brokered innovative and successful entertainment deals for, among others, Jerry Bruckheimer, Will Wright, Halo, Gears of War, Valve and Guitar Hero.
Larry has received an Emmy Nomination as a Television producer for "Brian Wilson: I Just Wasn't Made For These Times," an Emmy win for his participation in the Interactive Series “Dirty Work” as well as a Grammy Nomination producing the music film "Forever Is a Long Time" for Don Was.
