Ten years managing film and television productions at NBC/Universal preceded by a freelance television production career and the last five years as Vice President of Marketing and Sales at Sunset Gower and Sunset Bronson Studios, Terri Melkonian felt it was time to pursue her filmmaking dreams and follow her passion of producing quality, uplifting entertainment. She joined the Producers Guild of America, and with offices at Paramount Pictures she formed TERRIMEL Productions, focusing on developing as well as funding marketable films with a positive message. As a producer, she understood how absolutely vital a strong marketing campaign was to the success of her projects. After seeing highly regarded projects fitted for success fail because they lacked an effective marketing campaign, she wanted to ensure her films would not succumb to that demise. Relying on her extensive marketing experience and an innovative team of tech gurus, Terri and fellow filmmaker Lou Simon created Moving Forward Media Group. By offering the engagement of their New Media expertise, they provide every content creator/producer an optimum opportunity for success by designing and overseeing a cost effective transmedia campaign encompassing multiple platforms and formats while using the latest digital technologies.
Terri Melkonian is a member of the New Media Council of the PGA, serves on the board of NewFilmmakers Los Angeles and serves on the advisory board of Kat Kramer’s Films That Changed the World.
