Armed with a BA in Journalism from the University of Georgia and skills acquired working with internet company iXL, cable news network GNET, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and the CWK (Connect with Kids) multimedia company, Jon Milavec’s vision of Mixed Bag Media became a reality in 2001. Working primarily as Director of Photography and Camera Operator, Jon has contributed to television shows on HGTV, the DIY Network, Speed Channel, History Channel, Bravo and Animal Planet.
In 2006 Jon began creating video projects on his own for such clients as GE, Coke, Georgia Tech, Dell Computers, Mother Nature Network, InterContinental Hotels Group, Southwest Windpower and the Foundation of Wesley Woods among others. As a producer/director, Jon’s strength, and Mixed Bag Media’s forte, is making short marketing and promotional videos that tell big stories within a short timeframe. Specifically he is exceptional at being able to effectively explain a client’s business in three to five minutes. Jon’s enthusiasm is contagious.
In his words, “I love my job! I get to work with brain surgeons, race car drivers, inventors, CEO’s, homeless people, researchers, fundraisers and others who possess a wide range of talent that’s put to use across many different careers. I’m a curious person and enjoy the opportunity to meet interesting individuals and learn about different businesses and organizations.”
