Saturday was a success! It was hella good to meet some new folks and get the word out about BOFG. We can’t thank CBIFF and Cristyn enough for making this partnership possible. I hope you all had a great time! 

We rocked to some music, ate some burgers, had some transcending drinks (IFYKYK), but best of all we talked about making our mark on the film industry. Education and connection are BOFG’s top priorities and the connection on Saturday was perfect!

Didn’t get to come out? No worries, we plan to partner and host more events soon! 

We want to get to know you, so it’s only right that you get to know us. We’ve written about why BOFG was started, but we haven’t told much about the details of how and who helped. 

So let’s start with this bomb logo, it was created by Columbus native James Prysock.

James Prysock III is the Director of Social Justice & Activism at Otterbein University. He received a B.A. degree in Sport Management from Otterbein University in 2009 and an MBA in 2019. He has been active in the areas of leadership development, life skills and personal/professional branding. Immediately after college, he began working in an after-school ELL program for Somali refugee elementary and middle school students in Columbus, Ohio. In that program, James developed a curriculum that included goal setting, conflict resolution skills, networking skills, building healthy relationships and identity development. He has mirrored that curriculum with students, community members and companies of varying industries. His higher education experiences include being an event planner, graduate school professor, addressing campus climate needs, alumni engagement, community service initiatives, advising five student organizations as well as graphic design work for various organizations.
