Documentary shares entrepreneurs across NC, Jerry Neal recognized

It’s seven in the evening, and despite heavy rain on Tuesday night, people are still entering the Sunset Theater to join the premiere of the documentary series.

The “Making North Carolina” series, created by VentureAsheboro and RhinoLeap Production, showed three of the seven documentaries that would tell the stories of North Carolina entrepreneurs from Piedmont and Triangle.

Jonathan Till, co-founder of VentureAsheboro, said the company received a $ 103,000 grant from NC IDEA, a private foundation that supports entrepreneurship. The distribution for the series was $ 20,000, which was used to hire RhinoLeap Productions for videography, editing and the premiere night.

“We hope PBS-NC will consider taking the series, which will fund us to continue telling amazing stories about enterprising North Carolinians,” Till said. “Our goal is to tell inspiring stories of entrepreneurial failure and success in our great country.”

Jeremy Skidmore, artistic director of the production, greeted the audience, explaining that the documentaries will be divided into three parts with questions and answers at the end. The entrepreneurs represented were Jerry Neal, Lee-Catherine Bonner and Algen Cash.

Here’s a closer look at Randolph County Entrepreneur Jerry Neal. Neil’s achievements can be further found in the documentary; some of the answers are taken from the series.
