As a proud alumni of the Dodge Film School Creative Producing class of 2015, I have become a member of the Producers Guild of America and the Television Academy Foundation. I’ve sold feature films internationally and domestically, and my work online has reached over 80 million viewers.

Through my work as a Producer, I began to notice two significant problems. First, there are too many skilled filmmakers that go without work each day because their networks are limited. Second, those looking to hire a film crew have no central database of industry-reviewed filmmakers.

To address these issues, I set out to build a career management platform: Industry Jump.

Through Industry Jump, filmmakers can boost their visibility to employers with beautiful portfolios and verified reviews from colleagues. Employers can then access a database of these profiles to hire the best possible crew for their projects.

Our mission is to help filmmakers take their careers to the next level, while allowing them to spend more time working on what they love and less on the “busy work” that goes into filmmaking. Portfolios and a hiring database are just the beginning. We have a pipeline of innovation that will make managing your career and all of your projects simple and effective.

It has been one week since we launched Industry Jump’s private beta, and since then, we have already signed up filmmakers in 45 states.

Industry Jump

As a Dodge Alumni, I know first hand the caliber of students that attend Dodge College, and that’s why we want to work with you. We’d like to invite all Dodge students to join our platform now, with the Beta Code: MakeFilms

As a student of Dodge, you can go to to make a free profile, and utilize our platform to find crew members for your next project, simultaneously opening yourself up to other film making opportunities through your industry profile.

If you’d like to join the Industry Jump team, we currently have one internship position available. If interested, email for more information.
