About

End Cue is a complete redesign of the modern film production firm: a hybrid technology software company and film development and production company. We apply Silicon Valley principles and groundbreaking technology to the creative storytelling process. Our work spans across multiple categories, including feature-length film, animation, documentary, and television. End Cue was founded by Andrew and Walter Kortschak.

LEADERSHIP

Andrew Kortschak / Principal

Originally from Palo Alto, Andrew Kortschak comes from a background of tech industry innovators. Upon co-founding End Cue in 2013, Andrew has worked to combine his interests in film, animation, technology and documentaries. He is a graduate of USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, where during his studies he spent time working at Pixar Animation Studios as a Production Assistant for MONSTERS UNIVERSITY, and since graduation has given several guest lectures to students on the process and strategy of independent filmmaking. As a producer he has several features in development, including Jon Watts’ untitled EXPLORERS project, Taika Waititi’s stop-motion animation film BUBBLES, and MOONFALL, a science fiction feature written by David Weil and to be produced with Ram Bergman (STAR WARS, LOOPER). When not in his office or on set, he can be found hiding in the server room playing with the End Cue modular synth.

Walter Kortschak / Principal

Walter Kortschak co-founded End Cue, to which he brings more than 30 years of early- and growth-stage technology investment experience. His knowledge has been invaluable in developing such content as SILICON IS JUST SAND, an original article produced in collaboration with Epic Magazine that follows the tech boom in Silicon Beach; Taika Waititi’s stop-motion animation film BUBBLES; and in producing the first film based on an AI-generated original screenplay. He currently serves as Executive Chairman of SignalFire, an early-stage venture capital firm in San Francisco. Walter is also a fund advisor to several micro-VC firms in Silicon Valley and an active angel investor in such notable companies as AltSchool, First Republic Bank, Lyft, Palantir, Trade Desk, Twitter, and Uber. He was a Managing Partner at Summit Partners for 21 years, responsible for investing in over 50 companies, many of which achieved successful public exits. He started his venture career at Crosspoint Venture Partners and is a six-time Forbes Midas List investor. Walter received a BS from Oregon State University, an MS from Caltech, both in engineering, and an MBA from UCLA. He serves as a member of the Board of Trustees at Caltech and is a past director of the National Venture Capital Association.
