Troy S. Krueger has over 20 years experience in the entertainment business industry. With his industry experience focused on branding, operations, leadership, project management, strategy, investing, and marketing, Troy loves to collaborate with other professionals and businesses on creative projects.
Troy earned a Master of Science in Entertainment Business and a Master of Fine Arts in Film Production from Full Sail University, Winter Park, FL, in 2013 and 2018, respectively. His Bachelor of Science was in Business Administration from Herzing University, Madison, WI, in 2011.
In 2012, he founded Gumption Entertainment, which is a full-service production company that provides business development services, such as producing brand videos, marketing and project management, web design, business planning, and consulting. Currently, Troy has been freelancing with short term clients to produce videos or consult on their marketing or business strategies. He has built a vast network of resources when it comes to colleagues, crew, studios, contractors, investors, distributors, and vendors.
His strengths include networking, cultivating relationships, providing business intelligence, and communicating with clients, executives, and stakeholders. Problem solving, negotiating, and handling contracts are other complementary strengths that he has sharpened throughout his career. He knows the importance of time management, being a team player, and providing up-to-date reports on performance and industry trends, and has written several business plans and proposals for music tours, entertainment companies, investors, feature films, and venture capital firms. Besides writing business plans, he has developed the knowledge of how to implement digital marketing strategies and gather analytics and metrics.
Furthermore, in 2017, Troy produced a short romance-drama film called Mann & Quinn. Supervising a successful crowdfunding campaign and a crew of 70 people, he brought the film in on time and under budget. The film started its festival run in January 2018, and him and his team are excited to see how it does. For more info, go to the website at www.mannquinnfilm.com.
Another project Troy has been developing with his producing team is a medium 8-figure budget feature film. It is a biopic based upon the lives of the Rat Pack crew (Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Joey Bishop, and Peter Lawford), how they came together, the struggles and successes they went through in tinsel town, and ultimately still stayed friends.
