At 22, Taylor Owenby moved to Atlanta and founded Matchbook Media + PR, Georgia’s first public relations and media production firm. He worked with several film festivals in the state and had the opportunity to work with entertainment leaders from Nashville, New York, Hollywood and Atlanta. After doing a lot of traveling, he foresaw the necessity for the talent in Georgia to match the standards of those in more developed markets. That launched his producing career in television and film as a professional. In 2013, Taylor became the youngest Executive Producer in Georgia with one of the first SAG-AFTRA New Media pilots. Subsequently, he became the youngest Feature Film producer in Georgia to produce a project with ‘A’ list Talent, securing global distribution. He filmed an action-thriller called Operator in his hometown of Covington, Georgia, where he worked with Ving Rhames, Mischa Barton, Luke Goss and Michael Pare. It was an incredible experience. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and screened in theaters around the world. He also began representing projects for marketing and secured many distribution deals, while showcasing a Hollywood premiere at the TCL Chinese Theatre. In 2017, he partnered with industry veterans to launch Cinema Park Studios by Matchbook Media Group, a 20,000 sq. ft. complex in the heart of Downtown Atlanta.
