80% of jobs are from relationships and referrals.
AUSTIN ENTERTAINMENT BUSINESS HELPS make those connections.
WHO WE ARE + WHAT WE'RE ABOUT
Austin Entertainment Business (AEB) is a networking group that connects entertainment professionals. AEB works to inspire our industry to form relationships. By offering and receiving help from each other, we can all move projects forward with vetted teams. You can't just jump into a marriage. You've got to date first! Employers need great people and employees need great work environments. When this happens we all make more money and enjoy success.
AEB also emphasizes the business of creative. Every production is like starting a small to large business and needs to have many of the same components considered (insurance, vendors, crew, creative, marketing, distribution.... ). When this is done successfully it creates a win win for everyone and will allow us all to stay weird while working in Austin instead of being shipped out to Atlanta, Los Angeles, NY, etc.
The Austin Film Commission has listed AEB as an official support organization for the entertainment business in Austin.
HOW WE NETWORK
We host a monthly event for Austin Entertainment professionals to get together, enjoy some beverages, and make connections.
