Proximity is a multi-media company founded by Ryan Coogler, Zinzi Coogler and Sev Ohanian, and co-founded by Ludwig Göransson, Archie Davis and Peter Nicks with a mission to create event-driven feature films, television, soundtracks, and podcasts that bring audiences closer together through stories involving often-overlooked subject matters.
Proximity is committed to developing a wide variety of projects from limited budget projects to blockbuster productions. Proximity’s first film, Shaka King’s JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH, was nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Daniel Kaluuya won the Oscar for “Best Supporting Actor” for his role as Chairman Fred Hampton and H.E.R won for “Best Original Song” for “Fight for You.” Proximity’s SPACE JAM: A NEW LEGACY, the 2021 sequel to the hit 1996 film, was released by Warner Bros. in theaters and on HBO Max. The film came in #1 at the U.S. box office, earning an estimated $32 million domestically during its opening weekend.
The company also produced the documentary HOMEROOM with Hulu, directed by Proximity partner Peter Nicks, as the final chapter of Nicks’ OAKLAND trilogy (following THE WAITING ROOM and THE FORCE). Proximity’s highly anticipated CREED 3, co-produced with MGM Studios, will premiere March 3, 2023. The company is co-producing UNDERRATED, a documentary on NBA superstar Steph Curry, with Apple Original Films, A24 and Unanimous Media. Their audio division produces WAKANDA FOREVER: THE OFFICIAL BLACK PANTHER PODCAST.
Proximity Music produced the soundtracks for JUDAS AND THE BLACK MESSIAH and SPACE JAM: A NEW LEGACY. They are producing the official soundtrack and score for BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER with score composer Ludwig Göransson. Proximity Music has produced the WAKANDA FOREVER PROLOGUE EP, featuring Tems’ “No Woman No Cry” from the film’s instantly viral trailer.→ See Latest News
