In everything we do, schools receive all of the resources they need for a streamlined and easy to program experience. This includes rights to use the films involved, professionally developed educational study guides, photos, videos, marketing collateral, and more.

 SCHOOLS NEED 
 PROGRAMMING 

Now, more than ever before, schools are looking for access to resources that inspire, educate, and are timely - while being cost-effective.

 HELPING CREATORS

For many creators, their project is a labor of love and often not-profitable. When we work with creators, we provide access to new revenue and audiences.

MAKING PROJECTS NOT JUST WORK, BUT MEMORABLE

We take care of all planning aspects with an "experience-in-a-box" as a one-stop resource having everything you need to be successful while being there every step of the way to help.

STREAMLINED,EASY, AND CUSTOMIZED FOR YOU

IT ALL STARTED WITH A RIVALY...
MEET THE FOUNDERS

One of the greatest rivalries in college sports is between the Miami Hurricanes and Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Both founders are an alum of each school - Jonathan from Miami and Patrick from Notre Dame. Their rivalry turned into a friendship that led to the merging of the film, sports, and education industries resulting in the creation of Crossroads Entertainment. 

 JONATHAN SCHRADER 

As an innovator in the sports industry, Jonathan is relationships-driven and always finding new ways to connect people with ideas and making those ideas come to life. Jonathan believes in leading through innovation and challenging the status quo. Having been a part of one of the largest sports agencies (Wasserman) and college rights holders (Learfield) in the world, Jonathan's past work includes numerous accolades and projects.

 PATRICK CREADON 

Creadon is an award-winning filmmaker primarily known for his work in documentaries. He is one of only a handful of filmmakers to have multiple films ranked among the Top 100 highest-grossing documentaries of all time simultaneously. His first film, Wordplay, premiered at the 2006 Sundance Film Festival and became the second-highest grossing documentary of that year.
