Group organizer Jennifer Hutchins has produced over 200 episodes of hit shows for CBS, CNN, A&E, Spike, TLC, Syfy, Discovery, Fox Sports and National Geographic. She has produced many feature films with major production companies, popular directors and celebrities while working to connect investors with high profile slates of films. She also produces branded content for digital and network series with access to network distribution.

Austin Entertainment Business meetup is designed to cut through the bull and save time and money. Hutchins started as a journalist in Michigan and then became an actress in Hollywood. When she wanted to become a producer, she had no idea where to start. She met a very successful producer and volunteered to help him with some projects. In exchange he would mentor her on everything he knew. She realized quickly that she was getting her masters degree in the entertainment business... for free! It was a win win situation. The producer liked her work and she was hired for her first television series as a production assistant. She took the job seriously and was quickly able to move up the chain and by season 2, she was a producer. The show was the #1 rated series on A&E and was called "Criss Angel Mindfreak".

Eventually Hutchins was able to leap from non-fiction producing to film when she volunteered her time and skills for a very successful indie film producer. That producer was so impressed by her work ethic that she ended up hiring Hutchins on two films that got distribution and are available on video demand channels.

By giving first, Hutchins saved time and money.

"Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do." Pele
