Jack McRee began his Tech story in 2012 hoping to launch a career in film and television production. During his time at Tech, McRee held seven internships with the Disney College Program, International Human Trafficking Institute, Melt Sports & Entertainment Marketing, LifeSprings Media, production companies in Atlanta and Orlando and Atlanta Falcons. He also completed research with LMC’s Digital Integrative Liberal Arts Center(DILAC) and Creative Career Origination Lab(CoLab).
After all his experiences, he set out to find his dream job — one that combined his passions for on-set production and marketing and advertising. In March of 2017, he received a phone call regarding a Content and Production Internship with Disney’s Yellow Shoes Creative Group in their in-house, full-service advertising agency. “From an early age, I fell in love with Disney’s world-class brand of storytelling through their films and immersive theme park experiences…I accepted on the spot.”
Since June 2017, McRee has become an integral member of the Content and Production team at Yellow Shoes, producing all advertising content for any of the Disney Destinations around the world including television commercials, web promos, special episodes of television shows and more.
