President - Stanislav Shkilnyi
Stanislav’s dream of becoming an entertainment industry producer led him to earn his B.F.A. degree in Film/Television producing from Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD). He began his career as a Location Manager, achieving the first step to realizing his dream. While his resume was being firmly and steadily built he enjoyed various positions: Producer for Short-Films and a Coca-Cola advertisement. His Feature Films involvement includes: Acting, Stunts, Location Management, Production Assistant, Product Placement and Entertainment Insurance. This last, led him to the fascinating intricacies of the insurance world where he sharpened his skills.
In time he accepted a position with Barrow Group, LLC as Director of its Film & Television Insurance Department. This “knitting” of his already well developed Film and Television all-around skills was the perfect match. He went on to develop the necessary connections to launch Crogan Filmworks, LLC with Robert Barrow.
