Networking in the film industry is not only essential, it’s a way of life. If you shudder when you hear the word “networking”, don’t worry, you’re not alone. The term has garnered negative responses from all of us in the entertainment industry. You may be glad to know that it might not be as daunting as you originally thought. In this episode we talk about many different ways you can meet people in the industry, not only in LA, but also in cities across the country.

Jenna Edwards

In the year 2000, Jenna, made the journey to L.A. to pursue acting. She appeared in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Malcolm in the Middle as well as several independent films. Her natural charisma, inherent organizational skills and art for problem solving led her to producing student films and as of late, her feature film debut, April Showers. Producing has given her a rare gift, one that allows her to truly love her job and to be excited every day about what she can achieve and enable others to achieve. Edwards and her directing partner Andrew Robinson have recently formed their own distribution company called Pure+Motive. Jenna and Andrew have recently begun work on their second feature film collaboration, an adaptation of Dancing Carl based on the novel by three-time Newbery Honor author Gary Paulsen.

    Great advice ladies. I believe you all summarized the key ingredients needed to succeed in just about every aspect of life. Your attention to working with people, not just for personal gain, to generate a creative experience which everyone can enjoy is generous and quite insightful. With those kind of ideas you can never go wrong.

    Much success to you in your futures,
