FILM & MEDIA STUDIES

In 2011 Shannon Bailey saw the need at Athens Christian for a new creative outlet that could train students for the overwhelming flood of television and film productions coming to Georgia.

As a television & film producer/director herself, Mrs. Bailey felt called to bring her experience and talent to a new generation that can now influence the world for positive change from the inside out.

The entire program was funded generously by a grant from Zaxby's, which includes a state of the art editing facility and Mac lab, high-end video equipment, and a yearly film festival, which is open to the public.
