Film Leadership Council Co-Chair

Devante Smith is a recent graduate of Eastern Washington University’s Film program. After interning for season three of Z Nation, he has been working as the basecamp production assistant for the past two years on the show. In the off-season, he works with local musical artists to build a voice and brand through interviews, podcasts, and music videos to bridge the gap between the music community and the visual art community. Currently, he is working with a colleague on starting a production company that can tailor to new upcoming film enthusiasts in the Pacific Northwest area. Having worked on a handful of productions from student shorts to professional TV shows, Devante values the opportunities the film industry has given him and hopes to pass the opportunity on to generations to come.
