The Power of Storytelling w/ DeVon Franklin

Listen to our podcast conversation with DeVon Franklin, President and CEO of Franklin Entertainment, from the 2024 AVP Summit.

In this episode of the Showcast, recorded live from the 2024 AVP Summit in Reggio Calabria, Italy, TFV’s Matt Micucci converses with DeVon Franklin, acclaimed producer, as well as founder and CEO of Franklin Entertainment. In this episode, Franklin talks about the origin of his passion for storytelling, the motivation behind becoming a film producer and how he eventually came to establish Franklin Entertainment, as well as the vision behind the company and the stories that he wanted to produce.

We also reflect on the current state of the audiovisual industry, amidst intense cultural and technological changes. In our conversation, Franklin particularly addresses a tendency within the industry to focus on things that are beyond one’s control, rather than focusing on things that are within one’s control, and refers to his belief, supported by facts that people are hungrier for stories than ever.
