After many years of wrestling with the artist trapped within his suits, he took the plunge and married the love of his life, Michelle, who is also a hometown Baltimore girl. First they tested the waters of the entertainment world in Florida. Steve quickly became the Vice President of a company that syndicated international TV series. He was credited as an Executive Producer on several quality educational and informative ongoing series. It didn’t fulfill his burning desire to tell his own stories so…they moved West to find not gold, but silver, on the screen that is. They launched Bee Holder a few years later.
Bee Holder’s logo imparts the ideals which illustrate the great passion the Joneses and their team have for film and television, for story telling at its finest… and they celebrate the impact these important mediums have on many millions the world over.
Wanting to return to her original plan, and determined to pursue something more creative and meaningful, Camila’s love of storytelling and film resulted in a move to Los Angeles. She soon found herself working as part of the team heading up environmental youth initiatives for Disney. Her passion for storytelling grew, although the corporate world did not appeal to her. She began a series of courses in screenwriting and producing at UCLA. This ultimately led to her involvement with Bee Holder Productions where, due to their mutual love for stories that entertain while imparting meaning, she immediately discovered a synergy with Steve.
As Creative Executive, she heralded several projects and earned her first attachments. When she brought a few projects into the company, that synergy grew and her championing of such material resulted in a step up to VP of Development. She was recently named Executive Vice President of the company.
Michelle shares the company passion for powerful entertaining films and TV that are compelling and that inspire dialogue. Her job entails coordinating trips for the company and overseeing the office. She is the liaison for press and all entertainment activities that the company partakes in.
