Joshua Jackson is taking on a new role behind the camera.

Joshua co-founded the company and currently acts as chairman of the board.

“Liquid Media Group grew from my vision of what this company could do to help grow the independent film and television industry. Liquid’s successful acquisitions and ability to have a banner year for revenue growth, despite the current economic conditions, got me very excited to commit more time to management,” he said in a statement. “While we are actively looking for a permanent CEO with the public market skills required to steer Liquid to higher growth, I’m more than happy to take on this role as long as necessary.”

Liquid Media works to support independent creators and IP owners in the entertainment industry by finding solutions to common creative and distribution obstacles that can occur outside of the studio system. They plan on launching a filmmaker-first, B2B distribution platform called Projektor in the next few months, which will hopefully offer more autonomy and data transparency than current distribution models.

The company added that the search for a new CEO is currently underway.

In a recent interview, Joshua revealed which of his previous roles he probably wouldn’t take on today. Find out which role he picked.
