Jobs with Threshold LLC

Threshold

Venice, CA

Threshold is a cinematic educational platform producing content relating to athletes’ existential dilemmas. Its material is provocative and seeks to be disruptive (read: intellectually-stimulating), inspiring reflection in athletes and fans alike. The company is backed by corporations who understand and are sympathetic to the demands and injustices that professional athletes experience before, during, and after their careers. Threshold’s media presence primarily takes the docu format, but also includes an interview-based podcast, philosophical articles, short videos, and visual art.

The Threshold production team is nationally-based, but headquartered in LA. CEO, Jared Odrick, travels for speaking engagements on behalf of the company, interacting with his viewers and consumers directly.
