ANDY BURTON COON is an award winning documentary filmmaker that currently resides in Greensboro, North Carolina.
I grew up in Montclair, New Jersey for my first 18 years of life. I left for Greensboro, North Carolina for college and have been residing here since. Wow, that’s a long time.
I’m currently freelancing as an Independent contractor in multiple areas of filmmaking. My work ranges from documentaries, corporate commercials, feature films, music videos and on-line marketing. I have worked with Time Warner Cable, G-Graphics, A&E Television, WE Television, Heaven on Earth Creations, Case & Cushion Furniture, Series DVD, Tribunal Records and as a consultant with All Aces Media. I’m also working with my brother on his brain child The dotmatrix project. I’m acting as one of the film community leaders which reach out to filmmakers and bring them in to the project. I also act as a filmmaker and editor when needed.
I Directed and organized 2007 ConvergeSouth Film Festival. I took on the challenge of building a film festival from the ground up with no budget. I used my on-line marketing experience to market the message and generate hype for the film festival. It was the first year for the film festival and I used my filmmaking experience to build an exciting film festival that was showcase on October 20th, 2007 in Greensboro, NC.
I love how the web is allowing individuals and businesses the opportunity to bring creativity to the world. I’m a huge supporter of progressive ideas and understand how the web brings us closer together and helps to inform and educate people. It is up to the individual user of the web to declare how it effects society. If we all make the right choices we have nothing to worry about.
Ideas are what keep me going. I have so many ideas that branch across the hemisphere of business and entertainment. If anyone is ever interested in expanding these ideas into actuality please feel free to contact me.
