COED hosted another successful Cherokee Film Summit on March 10, 2022, at the YANMAR//EVO Center.
The power-packed day consisted of two events; a summit for Cherokee County School District CTAE Audio/Video Technology & Film Pathway students and an evening event to connect the local film industry. The day kicked-off with hands-on learning, networking, and six informative breakout sessions.
The dynamic line-up of breakout sessions featured a wide variety of topics, including production, cinematic lighting, storytelling with video, creative screenwriting, picture cars, and film festivals.
Deputy Commissioner of the Georgia Film Office Lee Thomas headlined the summit’s evening event, sharing about Georgia-based productions and how direct spending by this top industry positively impacts our state and local economy.
Feature panelists for the summit included Ashley and Thomas Cantley along with Tom Cox of Stream MOKO. In 2020, Woodstock-based entrepreneur and filmmaker Thomas Cantley met local brand architect Tom Cox at the Cherokee Film Summit. Less than two years later, Stream MOKO, a new “good moods only” streaming startup was launched.
