Ceda Xiong, AB'05 PRoject Administrator at Warner Bros.Digital

I am a project manager for Warner Bros' new digital arm. I handle all different types of communication between the different departments at WB. Since we are a brand new studio, we are also partnering with production companies to produce high-quality entertainment for the millennial audiences. Our focus is on scripted as well as unscripted content across all genres, tailored to a mobile platform. It's pretty exciting stuff. I'm facilitating in all areas, from development, to pre-production, production, and even post because we are such a small shop. My hands are kind of in everything.
