Glynn Beard,

We learned recently that Glynn Beard, the head of Clayton State’s Digital Media Center passed away. We met him on a couple of occasions and found him to be truly passionate about entertainment in Georgia. Originally from Vancouver, Glynn worked in the industry for over 20 years. He will be missed by many. (See more about his background here.)

The SEC finally caught up with Jake Shapiro and the gang that pumped the micro cap studio development dream known as Medient Studios. The most entertaining thing about this company was watching their dog and pony show start and stop and start and stop again. Sadly, many good people were swayed by false and misleading statements of the executives. Let’s hope criminal charges proceed on top of the $1.8 million judgment that has been granted. (See this story.) 

Get ready for a memorable event in Historic Savannah. The Savannah Entertainment 100’s agenda has been announced. (SEE THE AGENDA) We’ll have a display from SCAD, an excellent showcase of Georgia work from Crafty Apes, a legislative update from Rep. Marc Morris, and trends in entertainment/economic development from SEDA’s Brynn Grant. Contact us if you would like an invitation or if you would like to partner with us on this event. Out of town? You should be there. We have a special block of rooms at the venue. 

Presented by Crafty Apes, Sapelo Insurance, Creative Financial Group, Embassy Suites Savannah, Advanced A/V Rentals, Security Associates of Georgia, The Bowen Law Group, and others in partnership with the Savannah Film Office. (See more
