Meet The Team.
Jonny has become one of the fastest growing directors, content creators and storytellers in Dallas, because ‘good enough’ is not an option. Exceeding client expectations is his goal and he strives to make every project greater and better than the last. Jonny earned a bachelors of fine arts in photography and minors in film production and art history at Missouri State University. He started Jonny BadGood Productions in 2016 after freelancing and working full-time for some of the best photographers and directors in the industry as a DP and camera operator. His client list now includes Toyota, American Airlines, Nike, PepsiCo, to name a few. Jonny’s success in storytelling comes from extensive knowledge of the craft and ability to tap into the depth of a client’s wants, needs and goals. When not directing, photographing or filming, you can find him going to the park with his dog Walter.

After 15 years working in film production I can confidently describe the role of a producer. You make it happen regardless what gets thrown your way. The word no doesn't exist and each shoot is a set of challenges and limitations just waiting to be met and conquered. Keeping the director and clients vision on track requires clear, honest communication and a level of empathetic understanding on par with a buddhist monk. In my younger days I spent 3 years abroad serving in the Peace Corps. The resilience and dedication it takes to land in a country where you don’t speak the language and are unfamiliar with the culture all the while having to assemble differing groups to accomplish a unified goal has allowed me to navigate film productions with a calm demeanor and a wicked sense of humor. Producing isn’t a job, it’s a calling for those who have to give it their all on each project then wake up yearning for the next one.
As the production manager at Jonny BadGood Productions, Annie insures that all logistical aspects of every project are handled and keeps the team on track.

Her organizational skills and project management experience at Hari Mari and TJ Maxx have helped her navigate the creative world as she continues to find new ways to support our clients and team.
