Jeff Chamberlain along with his veteran Hollywood partner Mark Victor (Spielberg’s POLTERGEIST I, POLTERGEIST II, MARKED FOR DEATH – 20th Century Fox), financed and produced three motion pictures together – STATES OF GRACE and FALLING released in 2005 and 2008, and THE MINE, written and directed by Chamberlain to be released in theaters this summer 2013. He is active in the development and production of both narrative and documentary film projects which have socially responsible themes and messages. As a media strategy consultant, Jeff assists clients in their short-form messaging with a focus on three areas – message definition (with strategic intent), content creation (production), and delivery (cross-platform integration strategy). Being a writer, producer, director in film and commercials, as well as having direct entertainment corporate experience in Hollywood, gives him a valuable skill set as a media strategist for firms keen on elevating their brand through a consistent messaging strategy.

Mr. Chamberlain received his MBA from UCLA’s The Anderson School of Management, and a BS in Economics from California State University Northridge with an emphasis in Asian Languages. He has been quoted by The Wall Street Journal and other trade papers as an expert in international entertainment finance. He has been called on to be an expert witness for the District Court in North Carolina for issues relating to entertainment finance, production studio economics and marketing. Additionally, Mr. Chamberlain worked with the state of Utah’s senate subcommittee on legislation promoting economic development of the state’s entertainment industry.
