FRESNO, CA: Broadway Media Distribution, Inc. (“BMD”), an industry leader in scenic projection, has been rapidly expanding since its founding by Quentin E. Sanford in 2013 with the goal of providing Broadway-quality products to theatres around the globe. BMD has recently increased recruitment efforts to bring out of the area talent to the company by providing unique, large career opportunities related to live-theatre and art; two industries not typically offered in Fresno.
“BMD is lucky to have found a mission that so many theatres connect with, and because of that, we are able to bring jobs into the Central Valley”, said Laura Facciani, Vice President of Operations at BMD.
By hiring out of the area, BMD is bringing working professionals with a wide variety of career and life experiences to Fresno. “BMD has the unique opportunity of bringing talented artists, that have been trained at the best schools nationwide, to Fresno, a city that isn't typically watched as a hotbed for arts-related industries”, said Facciani. The company is currently anticipating the move of two new creative team members, Ray Kane of Boise, Idaho, and Gregory Mitchell, of Los Angeles, California.
“We are proud to be leading our industry and will continue to push the boundaries of our craft. Who would have thought that the most technically innovative products in theatre would be developed in Fresno?”, said Quentin E. Sanford, founder and CEO of Broadway Media Distribution.
In addition to Kane and Mitchell, BMD has also hired Eric Spikes of Madera as Vice President of Creative Development. In the past quarter, the company has added two additional administrative employees, and will be welcoming three more members to the team in the upcoming month.
Kane, who was born and raised on the east coast, is a graduate of The Columbus College of Art and Design, and was involved with Walt Disney World. Kane has over 17 years of experience across the globe in industries such as film and television production, themed environments, and retail design.
“I am excited to be working with a creative driven team. BMD is giving me the opportunity to do what I love and am passionate about . I am excited to continue learning and growing as a designer and illustrator”, said Ray Kane, BMD Creative Engineer
Gregory Mitchell, who is also originally from the east coast, is a graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia, where he studied animation.
“Art is about the combination of color knowledge and craftsmanship. My mom was an abstract painter, and my dad was a computer technician and mathematician. I feel that I got the necessary skills from both of them to be a successful artist”, said Gregory Mitchell, BMD Creative Engineer.
Kane will be joining the BMD team in Fresno at the end of April, and Mitchell will be begin in late June.
