Oklahoma Film + Music Office names new director ( News Oklahoma )

Jeanette Stanton has been named the new director of the Oklahoma Film + Music Office, a division of the Oklahoma Department of Commerce.

Stanton joined OF+MO in 2014 as a substitute director. A graduate of the University of Oklahoma, she brings a strong background in management, marketing, business development and public administration to the team, according to a news release.

“We are thrilled to announce that Jeanette has taken on this important role,” Brent Kisling, executive director of the Department of Commerce, said in a release.

In this week’s episode, Grace Wood, James Watts and Jimmie Tramel discuss Thanksgiving traditions and sides. So what about green bean casserole anyway? Also, a national touring production of the musical “Six” is coming to town, plus Daddy B’s BBQ is open for business in south Tulsa.

“In our state, the film industry is being born, and there is great potential for future growth, both through the productions we can recruit for the state, but also when it comes to the growth of employment and the permanent infrastructure of the industry.”

During his eight years with OF+MO, Stanton was able to oversee the operations of the office and assist in the management of development incentives and recruitment in attracting projects from companies such as Paramount+, Apple, FX Networks, GAC, Amblin and A24.
