Brian Mitchell is the Chief Operating Officer of The WTA Group, formerly known as Working Title Agency, which helps creatives develop, finance, produce and market films, books and other products to the faith market, and beyond. Brian has been working in this marketplace for over 30 years, and he has seen it grow and change. He has a wide range of experience working for artists from Amy Grant to the Kendrick Brothers.
In this interview Brian explains what WTA Group does, how it works with creatives, what kinds of content they want to see, and how theatrical release is still key to the work they do in film. Brian also talks about how WTA recognizes that their role puts them into the position of being a gatekeeper, and their conviction to make sure their projects are biblically solid.
And just recently, WTA Group is expanding it’s operations and Brian shares with us the exciting things that are brewing behind the scenes.
