Key Accomplishments

Creative film and television professional since 1990. Love finding the real stories in every project we do and bringing that to the audience. Have been on the "bleeding edge" of technology for so long I'm pretty sure I'm ahead of the edge now. Built a full service production facility in 2011 near Atlanta that services film and television projects and is now the home of the new Contemporary Living Network. We're exploring how 4k and UHD can better help us tell stories and share inspiration about life and living.

As for accomplishments, I've been a part of multiple Emmy, Peabody, Telly, Aurora and even a CableACE award. My favorite quote is "It's kind of fun doing the impossible - Walt Disney." That's pretty much how we live life and create projects every day. Nothing is really impossible, you just need to find the way to get the story told.

How I like to work with people As a Cofounder

I believe in long-term partnerships that work in the best interest of both parties. I've been burned a few times with folks who talk a great game but then completely change when real money gets involved. So I'm a bit cautious when taking on new partners these days.

As an Advisor

I listen. Ask questions and listen some more. Then I try to advise what's best for your individual situation. No two people or two situations are ever alike and it's important to listen extensively to fully understand what the true needs are.

Founder, IMUG and Owner, Carey Dissmore Productions, Inc..
Carey is a detail oriented creative that puts the needs of the client first. Beyond his creative skills, he ensures that all projects meet ... the client needs and come in on deadline. He also gives back to the global production community through his International Media Users Group and their annual event at the National Association of Broadcasters. A veritable "who's who" of the production industry attends this event each year and I can thank that event for connecting me with industry leaders I call friends today.
