The DeKalb Entertainment Commission (DEC) will host its 2020 Entertainment Expo virtually beginning on May 19, 2020, and May 21, 2020, at 1 p.m. via Zoom and Facebook Live. Since our launch in 2017, we have committed to advancing and strengthening the creative industry. 2020 has been challenging because of COVID-19; however, we will not waiver in our commitment to providing chances for the creative community to connect, collaborate, and create projects in film, music, and digital entertainment. We have converted our wildly popular annual Entertainment Expo into numerous creative and fun virtual events for the creative to enjoy live. The line-up will include monthly virtual talks, panels, and master classes from some of our industry-best experts as well as several events that were developed with their partner, Film Impact Georgia.
This master class will be a one-hour master class entitled “Concept to Creative” held on May 21, 2020, at 1 p.m. via Zoom and Facebook Live. It will be presented by Samad Davis, President/CEO of Visionary Media & Motion Picture Equity, LLC., and focuses on film production as related to developing a concept, creating finance packaging, acquiring financing, and securing distribution.
