I started with the Milledgeville + Eatonton Film Festival back in 2014 as a volunteer when I was a junior at Georgia College. I edited the first promotional video for the film festival, which was filmed by the ever talented BJ Golnick. From there, my responsibilities grew to include jobs such as downloading and archiving film submissions, maintaining the annual sponsorship deck, live streaming industry panels, creating a new promo video from scratch in 2017, and maintaining an archive of all MEFF media assets. My wife, Leah, has also been instrumental in the past years by working on t-shirt designs, posters, ticket design, and helping me stay sane during the past five festivals. My favorite part is getting a sneak peak of what is coming each year. From what I have seen thus far, I know that each year's submissions are only getting better and better. I'm excited to see all the talent and creativity that this year's festival brings to our community.
