Jeff Willis @jwillis81 has worked on the production company side of the industry for more than eight years. After graduating from CSU Long Beach with a degree in Film & Electronic Media, he got his first industry job at Beacon Pictures as an assistant in the business and legal affairs department. He left Beacon to pursue an opportunity at Our Stories Films (WHO’S YOUR CADDY?), a start-up production company from BET-founder Robert L. Johnson.

While at Our Stories Films, Jeff was promoted to an executive position and transitioned from business affairs to creative development, operations, and production management. After three years with Our Stories, he moved on to work with another start-up, Troika Pictures (THE CALL), as a consulting production and operations executive. A year later, Jeff accepted a position at The Weinstein Company, coming full circle and returning to his roots in business affairs. He's been with TWC for almost 5 years, currently serving as VP, Business Affairs & Production Administration.

In his spare time, Jeff pursues a writing and producing career. To date, he has completed two commissioned rewrite assignments and sold a feature screenplay that he co-wrote with a partner, which is currently scheduled to begin production early next year.

Note: Jeff did a Q&A with The Black Board you might enjoy.
