Emily HUNTER Salveson
Emily Hunter Salveson is the Founder and Managing Partner of Streamline Global. Responsible for client relationship management, business development, and marketing, Emily educates investors and their teams about state and federal tax incentives that lower film costs and enhance film profitability.
In late 2015, Emily set out to solve a seemingly unsolvable problem - to create a safer business model for the entertainment industry that would benefit both creatives and investors, drafting the first iteration of the financial model that Streamline uses today. Between late 2015 and 2018, Emily greenlit 14 films through Streamline Global and physically produced two of them.
Emily is passionate about creating change through legislation. In February 2018, Emily presented her 4-step tax plan to the U.S. House of Representatives and plans to return to draft a bill based on her ideas. In August 2018, Emily created a financial model for application in Data Philanthropy in partnership with United Nations Global Pulse.
Emily comes from a long line of financial industry disruptors. She is the granddaughter of Melvin Salveson, the founder of MasterCard and the great grand niece of the “Wizard of Wall Street,” Gerald Loeb, who successfully predicted and removed all of his clients from the stock market before the Crash of 1929.

Ryan is also Partner and Head of Production for Mountview Films and co-owner/operator of Thomasville Pictures, a studio and production services company in Thomasville, Georgia. Smith started his career developing and producing When the Night Comes, a feature film for The United Nations Foundation. He then produced numerous national commercials, music videos, sporting and large concert events. In 2015, Smith negotiated a partnership between AARP & Cumulus to bring Larry King back to radio. Later that year, in partnership with AEG, Smith produced Christmasland – one of the largest Christmas festivals in the history of Los Angeles, which attracted over 250,000 people, took over LA LIVE for a week, and included concerts at The Microsoft Theatre.
Through Mountview Films, Smith has produced numerous independent feature films, including Some Freaks, which was released worldwide in August of 2017 to enthusiastic media praise, and Heartbeats, an international film from the creator of Step Up.
