We Georgians go gaga over our burgeoning film industry. Peering out at my condo parking lot, I see a full movie set. My friend chatted with Cameron Diaz getting a manicure in East Atlanta; witnessed Jennifer Garner walking on the Atlanta BeltLine; and was that Jennifer Anniston shopping at Whole Foods?
Peel back the shiny surface and who congeals all this revolutionary activity is native son Jeffrey Stepakoff, the steam engine behind our state’s business of film entertainment.
With a sweeping 30-year career in the development and production of film, television, publishing, animation, and digital media, Stepakoff is an accomplished producer, screenwriter, novelist and entertainment industry expert who also happened to become a bar mitzvah at Ahavath Achim Synagogue.
