concept development, content & the
creative process. An Atlanta producer once
commented that she is ‘perhaps the
best interviewer’ they have ever
seen. In her mind that simply means she

about how the interview subject comes across
than how she does. Beth has co-produced,
developed the concepts, and scripted the
vast majority of projects in “Our

"I grew up in the “big
Hampton, Ga., where I claim most of the population
as family. I was born into a loving Christian
family from whom I inherited a profound legacy
that I hope to live and pass on to others.
God, family and friends are what I value
in life, and everything else just seems to
fall into place."
Art has been a big interest
of Stephanie since childhood, so it just
made sense for her to get a degree in Art
in college. She broke into the media world
in 1997 when she produced and edited training
videos for the corporation she then worked
for. In 2000, she went to work with the North
American Mission Board, where she learned
most of what she knows today about the film
and video industry. She traveled to South
Africa, Venezuela and several U.S. cities,
and produced videos for an international
sports mission agency and other organizations.
She has also made appearances in feature
films and national TV ads.

here at Bright Blue Sky Productions and am
thrilled to see what is yet to come on the
Jennifer Styles, Editor
It was at the age of ten that Jennifer began her film career. Using her grandmothers video camera she created such masterpieces as “Jennifer’s easy bake oven cooking show” and “Say no to drugs,” a cutting edge PSA starring Barbie and the rockers with special appearances by GI Joe. Jennifer went on to graduate from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a BFA in video film and a minor in sound. While she was there, she assisted with over 40 student film productions, including one that was selected for student competition at the Cannes film festival.
Jennifer feels that her most valuable experience came from teaching children the art of video production at the Georgia Children’s Museum. It was there where she earned her masters in the art of patience. But, in all seriousness, she found working with kids to be very rewarding and educational. Jennifer has now found her place in the Bright Blue Sky Family and is excited to let her creative energy flow!
