Giant Interactive on Sept. 22 announced the promotion of Nick Savva to VP of content distribution and GM at Giant Pictures.
Savva most recently served as director of content distribution, overseeing Giant Pictures’ global digital distribution efforts. In his new role, Savva will further expand content opportunities for the boutique digital distribution label.
Over the last three years, Savva has guided the Giant Pictures label to become one of the leading independent content distributors on a wide range of digital platforms. He has negotiated more than 45 direct accounts with such major streaming platforms as Apple TV, Peacock, Prime Video and Roku, among others. Savva, according to a press release, has also been essential in steering Giant into the world of direct-to-consumer OTT, most recently with the deployment of the Baby Einstein app on Roku.
Savva has acquired and distributed hundreds of movies, documentaries and TV titles in multiple territories since founding Giant Pictures in 2017.
Giant Pictures’ releases include the horror film Ghost Light, a Jury Award winner at the 2018 Austin Film Festival; Matanga/Maya/M.I.A., an Official Selection at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival; and Love, Antosha, a portrait of the late actor Anton Yelchin that was an Official Selection at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival.
