Bi-coastal production company Honor Society has added Cary Murnion as Executive Creative Producer. In this new role, he will oversee all in-house creative direction, partner with roster directors on concepts for branded and entertainment projects, as well as serve as Executive Producer at Honor Society’s Los Angeles office. The multifaceted position is fitting for Murnion, who has spent his career between production and creative roles. He will also continue to be represented as a director on Honor Society’s roster as part of the directing duo Cary & Jon, having created branded content for the likes of Nike, Target, Visa, Cheetos, Hertz, Tylenol, Mountain Dew and Ford, among numerous others.
Honor Society Founder/Executive Producer Megan Kelly has been collaborating with Murnion for over 15 years, having represented him as a director at Honor Society and previous production shops. The pair have developed a creative synergy and workflow that will energize their shared vision for blurring the lines between Hollywood and Madison Avenue.
Notes Honor Society Executive Producer Megan Kelly, “Having run a small creative shop before, Cary fully understands the blood, sweat and tears that goes into keeping that kind of an operation running. Having a full time creative resource will be a huge asset to our team and roster of talent, and will help us to continue to put the creative first in everything we do.”
“Stepping into this role with Honor Society is really a culmination of everything that I have done in my career so far, merging together. I strongly believe that production and creative should be done in tandem and I’m thrilled to be working with such a talented team that will make straddling production, creative and ideation a fun challenge,” adds Murnion.
Cary has directed, written and produced content for a wide range of entertainment studios and networks, including Lionsgate, Warner Brothers, XYZ Films, CBS, MTV, Nickelodeon, Logo, Bravo, and Comedy Central. He has managed both large and small teams of creatives and production crews ranging from teams of 150 down to strategic teams of five.
