Ralph Wilcox, Film Commissioner Mr. Ralph Wilcox
Southwest Georgia Film Commission Director

Thirty-years to his credit as a veteran actor in Hollywood and on the New York Broadway stage and now as an executive producer/director/and CEO of the 22,000 square-foot Jokara-Micheaux Film/Television/Music Production Studio, Ralph Wilcox has taken Southwest Georgia by storm. A Milwaukee native, his lifelong passion has been in the film and television industry as an actor and making a difference in the lives of others through the Arts. His enthusiasm led him to Africa for 6 ½ years where he produced documentaries on the lives of missionaries and owned a production company. His credits include a plethora of film and television credits including Sheena, Sea Quest, Silent Victim, In the Heat of the Night, and Good Times.

He is a visionary and has been successful in bringing much attention to an area that is considered the ninth poorest Congressional district in the United States. He is using the film and television industry as a vehicle for economic development while representing 14 counties in the Southwest Georgia area.

Mr. Wilcox has completed filming on The Lena Baker Story. He was the writer, producer and director. It is scheduled to be released Winter 2008.
