30-second Sample:

Hi, my name is Jennifer. I’m a right & left brained TV & Film producer, specializing in creative story & characters for docu-series.
Over 200 episodes of hit shows airing on major networks. My latest series “Planet Slow Mo” has over 80 million views on YouTube Originals.
On the other end of the spectrum I connect investors to film projects projected to excel in sales with a proven algorithm that's successfully predicted over 50% of Oscar winners.
I’m hoping to bring more productions to Texas and keep the locals employed!
