SC Short Films Accepted at Tribeca

South Carolina Business Review
SC Public Radio

In case you didn’t know, our state has a program providing professional development and training for South Carolina-based film crews, production professionals, independent filmmakers, and students. It’s apparently the only one of its kind in the nation. And we just found out that two graduates of that program have recently had their short films accepted at the prestigious Tribeca Film Festival in New York City.

Mike Switzer interviews Brad Jayne, a producer with Indie Grants, a collaboration of the SC Film Commission and Trident Technical College.

After almost 20 years, Mike Switzer retired from Wells Fargo Securities in 2001 as Senior Vice President/Investment Officer and Certified Portfolio Manager. In 1999, he and his wife, Maggie, purchased and operated for eight years the Baskin Robbins ice cream store on Forest Drive in Columbia. They grew the store from a bottom-tier operation in the Baskin Robbins franchise system to one in the top 5% nationwide within three years, tripling sales along the way. While operating the ice cream store, Mike and Maggie received patents for a portable ice cream sink and fold-down sneezeguard they invented and in 2002 started Magnolia Carts, an ice cream cart manufacturing company, which they sold in 2013.
