It is with sadness that the executive officers and board of GPP must inform the membership of the loss of one our founders, Vivian Jones.
Vivian was part of our organization starting in its earliest days of 1995, even before we were called the Atlanta Production Partnership. She was instrumental in our development into the Georgia Production Partnership, including our incorporation in 1998, and later became Co-President from 2002-2004.
Vivian's connections within local government helped lead to the eventual acquisition of political lobbyists and focused our mission. She was a local industry leader in the 80’s and 90’s, and in the early millennium, was a producer for Jayan Films and First Light Productions. While we take a moment to remember her, also know that it is shoulders like hers that we all stand upon.
Thank you, Vivian.
