Candice Wilson

VP of Acquisitions and Development
Candice Wilson is a multifaceted Creative Executive with a diverse background in both film and songwriting, and has consulted and worked alongside some of the industry’s top executives and talent to provide top tier support and execution. Always on the hunt for original and provocative material to produce and distribute, Candice finds new and inventive ways of bringing products to market. Candice wears many hats at Codeblack working on different projects in various stages of pre-production, filming and delivery, proving it is possible to find a happy medium between commercialism and creativity.

Born in New York and raised by techie and clothing designer parents, Wilson has always held an interest in both the practical and creative side of arts and entertainment. With a background in script development, film production, physical production, post-production, art direction and delivery, Candice oversees development through from inception to completion.

In an industry that is often more interested in the bottom line than artistic merit, Wilson has managed to remain strong in her desire to carve out her unique niche. As a producer and production coordinator, Candice has worked with some of the most formidable directors and actors in the business, as well as discovering unique, often unheard voices and stories, bringing them into the mainstream. Wilson naturally transferred her past experiences as a songwriter and astute business acumen into establishing her as a natural power player in the industry.
