    I am currently enrolled in Masters of Entertainment Business program at Full Sail University. I am currently in my Entertainment Business Finance class and for this week, we have an assignment where we are to interview a high level position at a company and gather information to write a four (4) page paper on it.

    I have contacted several companies over the past couple weeks and due to their extremely heavy workload, these companies have been unable to participate in the process and has severely placed me under the deadline gun.

    If someone who owns their company would be so kind to answer roughly 15-20 questions as a business owner (preferably a video production business) and would like to assist me in completing this assignment, I would be very appreciative and grateful.

    I can either post the questions here or send them in email.

    I sincerely appreciate any assistance anyone is willing to lend.

    Thank you in advance.
