It’s an honor achieved by a select few in Garden City; to be named one of Augusta’s “Top 10 Young Professionals to Watch.”
Karlton Clay is one of those top ten. The Augusta native is a rising star in filmmaking who has been honored internationally for his film producing ventures through Victory Productions.
The big moment came with a phone call. That’s how Karlton Clay got the news that he had been tapped as one of the Top 10 Young Professionals to Watch in Augusta.
“It was definitely a blessing,” said Karlton Clay, Founder and Creator of Victory Productions, LLC. “It’s a blessing to be recognized for all the hard work I’ve been putting in these last, almost 15 years.”
Hard work. Sleepless nights. Financial sacrifices. Clay’s production company is so much more than just a business. It’s personal. It’s the reality of a dream he envisioned while fighting cancer as a teen.
“Well for people who don’t know, the Victory Productions really started because I’m a cancer survivor. I had leukemia at 16, so it kind of, the vision came from just knowing that I had the victory over cancer,” Clay recalled.
