Jason Blum started in the 1990s when he worked for Miramax as an executive. He had some success in his early days, but things really kicked off for him when he started his own production company called Blumhouse Productions.

The movie cost only $15,000 to make and grossed over $200 million.

Things only got better from there for Blum. He produced InsidiousSinisterThe Purge, Happy Death Day, and the movies following them as sequels and spinoffs. This helped turn Jason Blum into a very wealthy man. He serves on the board of the Sundance Institute and the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. He also donated $10 million to Vassar College, the largest total ever for that university.
