Creative Executive talks to JDM 331 students

It is not often when a film company moves to a small Midwestern town. In the case of Good Deed Entertainment and Cracked Films that relocation occurred, as GDE recently settled in downtown Ashland. That move has many benefits for Ashland University students. Already, two Journalism and Digital Media students benefited from onsite internships. For the students in JDM 331 Digital Media Management, it was enlightening when GDE Creative Executive Andy Myers provided his insight to managing a film organization.

Myers, who has a film degree from UCLA and it close to completing his dissertation in the renowned USC film school, is a manager who is the link between the company and the film director during the creation of a movie. He supervises multiple people, including interns. He discussed personnel recruiting, budgeting and organizational communication in his fifty minute lecture.
