MEET THE TEAM

John C. Hall

Producer - Partner

John C. Hall is a film, television, and theatrical producer as well as a published author. Most recently, he served as Executive Vice President of Distribution & Marketing at Universal Pictures. His tenure in entertainment has seen him working on the marketing and distribution campaigns for over 375 theatrical releases, including major franchise titles, Oscar® winners, and dozens of mega blockbusters.

Hall’s passion for the big screen carries over onto the stage. He was a producer of “Macbeth,” the award winning critically acclaimed Broadway production starring Alan Cumming. He also was a producer of the Deaf West production of “Spring Awakening.” The production started with a Los Angeles run which earned over a dozen Ovation Award nominations including Best Musical.  The production then transferred to New York and received multiple Tony nominations including Best Musical Revival.

Hall’s altruistic side motivates him to serve on charity boards and as a jury member at various international film festivals. This spirit of altruism is what drove him to both write the book Your Hollywood Pro: How To Make It In The Movie Business Without Selling Out and co-found Your Hollywood Pro, a unique non-profit mentorship organization that brought aspiring filmmakers together with seasoned entertainment industry veterans. Additionally, Hall is an advisor to the executive team at Slated.com – the premiere film finance and distribution platform for independent filmmakers.

Nick Scherma

Producer - Partner

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Nick Scherma got his start in production at an early age. Under the guidance of his father Frank Scherma, Nick started on set taking coffee orders and quickly worked his way up the ladder. By the time he graduated college with an International Business degree, he had built a large network of connections and decided to move to New York to pursue freelance production.

 

Nick cut his teeth on commercials and short form content, but quickly realized his true passions lie with creating more meaningful, long-form content. In late 2017, he founded Lokal Media, which specializes in the physical production of movies and television. Both Lokal and Cardinal will enter into a strategic partnership where Lokal will handle physical production of the projects developed and distributed by Cardinal Trio.

Independently, Nick has helped produce international projects including: XQ, the cross-country education initiative, Facebook Live events and shows for National Geographic. He also produced commercials for major brands like Jack in the Box, Pfizer, AMEX, Mercedes, and Glade to name a few.
