" I've been loving this meetup! The best part of hanging out with people who come to this meetup is talking about their creative projects ... The thing that I believe some lose sight of is the idea that connecting with other human beings is actually incredibly satisfying. Go figure!!"- Dave Wirth- Composer

"This is one of the best film mixers you'll find in Austin. Jennifer's comprehensive knowledge of the media business greatly compliments her genuine desire to help Austin locals further their professional entertainment careers; she personally gave me some advice at one of these mixers, after which I was able to immediately apply that advice (at the same mixer!) when I met a film crew that was looking for a script supervisor. I'm now working with said film crew in an accredited role for an upcoming short film. Looking forward to making many more great connections!"- Christian LaFargue- Script Supervisor
