It’s A Gamble Production (IAGP) was established in February 2014 by Jana M. Gamble. IAGP provides independent filmmakers assistance during development, pre-production and production with film and television projects. Services vary from Consulting, Administrative duties, Screenwriting, Casting, Location Scouting, Assistant Director responsibilities, Craft Services, providing Production Assistants and more. It’s A Gamble Production also assists non-profits with behind the scenes photography and video production on a limited basis.
Due to Gamble’s involvement as the VP and managing the PR for Mike Brown, Sr.’s Chosen for Change Foundation during the unrest in Ferguson, MO in 2014, Gamble and her company became targets for unwarranted death threats and negativity. Months later, as the StL/Ferguson community began to return to a new normal, Gamble decided to change the name of her company to Purposed Productions. Gamble continues to partner with Lovelace Films from StL to LA to produce original, independent film and tv such as The First Pick, Eyes Don’t Lie and Rock the movie. Jana M. Gamble is a Member & Writers Group Moderator for the Organization of Black Screenwriters. From the faith-based, book-to-film and even straight hood scripts- Gamble’s voice is being heard. Purposed Productions is bringing Hollywood to St. Louis through film, tv and providing youth opportunities to explore history & the healing art of filmmaking.
