State of Affairs 2017

Around 11 years ago, as a student at Columbia College Chicago, I founded Beyond the Nametag Productions. It is meant to be an independent label to launch content from across the entertainment spectrum. While starting as a stamp for my student films, it was meant to grow into more. We’ve been quiet for too long, which is why I’m here to re-state our mission, build lasting relationships and keep you abreast of what’s in store for 2017.

Beyond the Nametag Productions exists to create thought-provoking content. Specifically, art pieces that peel back the labels and look beyond our first perception. We’re here to burst your bubbles, not conserve them (which is something we need now more than ever).

Collaboration is key; we hope to spread our knowledge through education, consultation and partnerships. That is why our blog will be much more active in 2017, featuring articles surrounding my individual experience and those of my colleagues. The door is open for consulting, whether you need advice for an independent feature, or full-service supervision of post production. With a career in the making that is 9-years and running, I’m blessed to have a network with depth and diversity to help bring these projects to reality. So be ready to take advantage of my experience this year.

While film and video remains our focus, future projects include a graphic novel in the fantasy genre and a sports podcast. I’m looking for us to stay busy and explore all of our creative outlets. This year, you can hold me to it.

Sincerely,

Shawn Montgomery
