Learn New Trends in Media and Personal Branding

Special guest speakers:

Porter Versfelt III and GT Owenby will talk about some of the latest trends in digital media and how to create and grow your personal brand.


​PORTER VERSFELT III I Photographer l Photojournalist l Director of Photography l Cinematographer l Producer l Director l Writer

Porter has worked on hundreds of motion pictures, television and video productions during his career; nearly twenty Hollywood movies for studios such as Dreamworks, Warner Brothers, Tyler Perry Studios, Universal and Paramount; TV shows and networks such as Drop Dead Diva (Lifetime Network), Vampire Diaries (CW Network), E! International (Naked Cannes), Food Network (Dinner Impossible), PBS, Georgia Public TV, Pennsylvania Public TV, Oxygen (Too Young to Marry), Celebrity Fit Club and Tru TV/Court TV; many documentaries, corporate marketing and training videos.

He is a Southerner, raised in Texas, Europe and the Middle East, and has traveled extensively throughout the U.S. and the world since childhood. Since 1994, Porter has lived and worked in the Atlanta metropolitan area and Georgia.

“I started my career in radio and TV journalism, migrated to corporate TV and advertising and just accidentally fell into movies and TV dramas.” says Versfelt. “I have been bitten by the entertainment industry bug and don’t need a cure, “ he adds, “That is why I enjoy helping to grow the industry in Atlanta and the southern USA.”

GT OWENBYlCreative Director l Photographer l Casting Director l Copywriter l Publicist l Associate Producer​ l Advertising Designer l Actor

Known as an up-and-coming creative in the Atlanta entertainment scene, GT got his start as a child actor in the mid 90's ( Lifetime Network ). Not to be pigeonholed, he went on to receive multiple awards for acting, writing, and public speaking. Born and raised in Georgia, GT has been working in the Atlanta film and television industry since 2010. He has since worked as a celebrity publicist and producer in music, film, and television in the Southeast.

Focusing on brand development and positioning for various artists and businesses, GT realized a need to help aspiring creatives in the industry. "To get a quality press kit, branding package or headshot, emerging talent not only have to know someone in the industry, but they are usually required to pay hundreds and even thousands of dollars to get decent work done. Even then, there is no guarantee they will book jobs. We need something better for them at a price even the struggling artist can afford. Let's level the playing field here in Atlanta and in the Southeast so that we can compete in the global marketplace. Sometimes the most talented people do not have thousands of dollars to invest in their future. They need something too."
