The Sports Illustrated Group has added Josh Oshinsky to its team as supervising producer for Sports Illustrated (SI), Golf and SI Kids Video.
The winner of a Sports Emmy and more than a dozen New York Emmy Awards, Oshinsky will oversee video production and operations for the brands. He will report to Collin Orcutt, editor of Sports Illustrated Group Video and digital/executive producer for SI Films.
Over the last 16 years, Oshinsky has worked as a producer and editor on film and TV projects for virtually every major sports league. His credits include Showtime’s “The Franchise, which earned him a Sports Emmy for Outstanding Edited Series, ESPN’s “30 for 30” documentary “Four Days in October,” which won a Peabody Award for Distinguished Continuing Series in 2010, and SI’s annual “The Making of Swimsuit” docu-series.
“Josh has finely-tuned instincts for storytelling and a keen understanding of the digital video space,” said Chris Stone, Sports Illustrated Group editorial director, in a statement. “Adding him to the team builds on our momentum in the video space, and we are thrilled to have him join us.”
The Sports Illustrated Group also announced that Lee Feiner and Nolan Thomas have been promoted to producers, reporting to Oshinsky.
The Sports Illustrated Group’s online programming slate includes “Jenner: 40 Years After the Gold,” which will premiere on SI.com in the coming weeks, and the animated short film “Dear Basketball,” debuting later this year on SI.com.. The latter project, announced last month at Time Inc.’s NewFront presentation, is the first product of a multi-platform partnership between SI, NBA legend Kobe Bryant’s Kobe Studios and Believe Entertainment Group (“The LeBrons,” “Money Where Your Mouth Is”).
