Aimee Rivera, Creative Executive at Skydance Media

Aimee Rivera began her flourishing industry career as a Creative Executive working as Assistant to acclaimed director, Charles Shyer (FATHER OF THE BRIDE, PRIVATE BENJAMIN, PARENT TRAP), and after two years used her networking relationships to get her foot in the door at Village Roadshow Pictures (THE MATRIX, LEGO MOVIE franchises), where she simultaneously was the Assistant for the Head of Film and the Head of Marketing. Realizing her career goals would be better served working in development, she left Village to pursue opportunities at a variety of film production companies until it landed her at Amazon Studios, where she became their first Feature Coordinator. Aimee worked at the company during the earliest days of the streaming wars and witnessed the beginnings of the theatrical landscape transition firsthand. While at Amazon, she continued to build relationships and network, which eventually led to a job opportunity as a Studio Executive at Sony Pictures. In a very competitive situation, she successfully landed the job and spent a year a Sony before going after her dream job as a Creative Executive at Skydance Media (THE OLD GUARD, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE, JACK REACHER, TERMINATOR franchises). During her three and a half years at Skydance, she is currently working on the upcoming features: TOP GUN: MAVERICK, THE GREATEST BEER RUN EVER (written and to be directed by Academy Award Winner Peter Farrelly), HEART OF STONE (starring Gal Gadot), and BERMUDA (starring Chris Evans and to be directed by Scott Derrickson). A graduate of Emerson College, Aimee has generously supported and acted as an Instructor for the “Networking & The Trades” module for ASU Film Spark’s successful “Film & TV Career Boot Camp.”
