The ATL is about to turn up for this year’s Ford exclusive blue carpet affair, First Take with FORD on Friday, July 17. In honor of the festive occasion, RC is putting a spotlight on a few of this year’s #FORDATL Ambassadors who go the distance in both their personal and professional lives. First up is rising entertainment mogul, AUTUMN BAILEY.
If you are looking to produce an independent film anywhere in Georgia, then Autumn Bailey is a name you need to know. The native Georgian by way of Pennsylvania is one of the state’s leading entertainment executives, who’s proven record of production and distribution of independent films, is second to none.
Bailey is the founder and CEO of Autumn Bailey Entertainment and has worked with over three dozen indie projects as a producer. She has also helped to secure film distribution for a number of these projects as well. A graduate of Shaw University, Bailey has played a pivotal role in expanding awareness of the indie film community in Georgia and founded the Georgia Entertainment Gala (GEG), one of Atlanta’s only events celebrating rising talent in television and film. In addition to the GEG, Bailey also established Get Connected Atlanta, a monthly industry mixer established in 2011 that is “for the people…by the people.” Each month includes networking opportunities with industry professionals, screenings, seminars and more.
Bailey credits faith, hard work, and dedication as her recipe for success: “Work hard, do business that uplifts others and show people that if they believe they can achieve anything they set their minds to.”
