About Us

Intelligent Life Media (ILM) is an independent digital media and content production services company that finances, develops, packages and produces entertainment content for various channels. Co-founded in 2008 by film producer Sheri Bryant and corporate executive John Byrnes, ILM combines talent, content creation, distribution and marketing relationships with in-house production expertise to develop premier content for a broad range of audiences.
