Experienced Executive Producer, Producer, & Creative Business Manager, in the industry for 17 years.
My goal is always to work seamlessly with the internal and/or external client & team of creatives to make sure visions are brought to life, on time and within budget, as well as scheduling workflows to ensure hitting all deadlines.
Producing TV, radio, digital content, & brand strategy from start to finish --- with knowledge on everything from pre-pro with the creatives (scripting, storyboarding) through production (finding the right partner, whether internal or outsourcing) and post-production (editorial, design, animation, VFX, color grading, audio mix, sound design, finishing, deliverables/aspect ratios, etc).
Budget planning, writing proposals, production planning, tracking utilization, pulling burn & profit reports.
End-results spanning everything from broadcast & commercial production, to digital/social animation, to internal video production, to company re-branding and style-guides.
I have also worked closely with marketing directors and creative directors to produce one-sheets, e-blasts, website copy, web marketing campaigns, and direct-to-client videos and reels.
I personally have one of the most extensive networks of anyone in the Atlanta and SE community, with resources and connections everywhere, from ad agencies to production studios, from editorial & animation houses to original music & audio houses, to freelancers of every sort, and VR & Commercial Directors.

I had the privilege of working with Kitty for over 9 years at Crawford. Kitty handles all assignments with dedication and with a professional and organized manner. Besides being a joy to work with, Kitty brings great collaboration and is a take-charge person who is able to present creative ideas and communicate the benefits. She has successfully managed many commercial and corporate campaigns that have been completed with great success. She is a great communicator and collaborator with the creative team and the client. I would definitely recommend Kitty for any production or sales related position, and would really like to work again with her in the future if an opportunity arises.
Group Director Integrated Production, HUGE Inc.
I’ve known Kitty as both a producer and a head of production. She keenly understands the balance of creativity and business - something required to be great in our line of work. She is smart, collaborative and has a remarkable Rolodex of production resources in the southeast. Above everything else you can tell that she loves what she does. Highly recommended.
VP, Director of 22pictures at 22squared
Kitty is a solid producer and an amazing person. I have known and worked with Kitty for over a decade, and she has always been smart and strategic in her planning and producing.
Renee Williams Royal
Senior Producer at BBDO Atlanta
I've worked with Kitty for several years on different projects and she's always prompt and professional. She looks for solutions that work for my budgets and is simply amazing to work with!
Creative Director, Icon
Over my 20 years in the business, I have learned that when it comes to producers, there are mostly two types: They are either very detailed but hold no creative vision (thus lacking context), or they have creative understanding, but lack the skill of developing a detailed workflow. But Kitty Snyder has it down in both camps. She is one of those rare producers that brings as much excitement and energy to the creative process as she does the small working parts of the machine that keep it moving smoothly. And she is one of the nicest people you will ever meet.
Senior Manager, Digital Creative at Vivint Smart Home
Kitty is one of those producers who just make projects and teams better. She's at least a triple threat: she's smart, intuitive, and she brings amazing energy and a contagious enthusiasm to everything she touches. Kitty knows to how get down to business, whether that's stepping in to record a scratch VO, or spending hours on the phone wrangling logistics for three simultaneous vendor timelines. She just gets s#*t done. Best of all, she's one of the nicest humans I've ever met. I'm lucky to have her in my corner.
Editor / Producer at CNN
For over ten years I worked on projects with Kitty. I could always rely on her as the account point person to be organized, quick to action and she always had my back. I would highly recommend Kitty and would want her on my team anytime.
Director/DP, Owner of Blue Planet
I've been a happy client of Kitty's since 2004. She has consistently been extremely helpful in planning and scheduling my post production sessions. Kitty also did a wonderful job as VO talent in one of the commercials I shot and directed. I had the pleasure of seeing Kitty perform some of her original songs at Eddie's Attic. She was awesome! Kitty always has a great attitude that makes me feel welcome at Crawford Media Services. I highly recommend Kitty Snyder.

I worked with Crawford Media Services for almost 20 years as a client. They are an amazing company because of the amazing people who work for them. One of the best is Kitty Snyder. Not only is she incredibly knowledgable about the industry and the services, she takes the time to get to know her clients and really connect with them. That attention to detail and personal relationship are what makes working with her a constant joy.
