About the Speaker
Angela Marie Hutchinson has worked for MGM, Warner Bros. Television and the GRAMMYs. Earlier this summer in 2018, Angela applied for a $20,000 grant and after the submission period was closed, the grant-giving organization emailed out the statistics about the submissions: there were ONLY 40 submissions for the grant within the entire County of Los Angeles. While Angela sees the value in less competition, she finds that statistic alarming for the number of talented filmmakers, entrepreneurs and nonprofits that are missing out on financial opportunities in California and throughout the U.S. Join Angela on 9/13/18 as she shares her personal strategy on finding funding, investors, as well as innovative ways to secure money for media projects from successful crowdfunding strategy and beyond.

Angela's first narrative feature film that she wrote, cast and produced, "Hollywood Chaos," she independently raised all of the funds needed to produce the movie under the SAG-indie Ultra Low Budget agreement (under $200K). The film landed distribution with Breaking Glass Pictures, and then aired on Hulu and other networks. Angela's second feature project, H.U.S.H., a documentary film about Hollywood's Uncovered Sexual Harrasment, aired on PBS. She received paid advances for both of her film deals. Angela has independently raised the funds to produce films, numerous media projects and organizational programs.

Angela has also appeared on BBC World News, CBS News, NPR and FOX13. In May 2018, Angela landed a mainstream book deal from Sourcebooks, the largest woman-owned trade book publisher in the U.S. Angela's book will release in 2019 and is based on her TEDx Talk, "Create Your Own Yes, When You Keep Hearing No." A University of Michigan graduate, Angela is married to a rocket scientist and has three young children.
