The former director of Savannah’s film office says he’s no longer working for Medient Studios in Savannah.
Jay Self tells GPB he’s no longer employed by the film company, but is declining further comment for now. Medient’s board fired its former CEO and several other key employees following a shakeup last month.
Self was fired from the City of Savannah Film Office in 2013. He took a job as Medient's head of corporate affairs soon after.
The Securities and Exchange Commission has suspended trading of Medient’s stock and the company is facing lawsuits from the ousted CEO and at least one shareholder.
