and Wendy Willis, Head of Development, Six Point Harness

We hope to answer your burning questions about how to KICK OFF your career AT INDEPENDENT STUDIOS! 
This live event is open to members only, but a recording will be available and open to the public for viewing.

Brendan Burch is the CEO of Six Point Harness and Mondo Media.  He’s a Cal Arts Character Animation alum.  Since 2003, Brendan has maintained a loyal crew of creative talent while producing projects like Sony’s Hair Love, Adult Swim’s Apollo Gauntlet, Fox’s Cosmos and Amazon’s Guava Island. He loves his job, his wife, his dog, fishing, golfing, and reading alone at restaurants.

Wendy Willis, a seasoned creative producer, serves as the Head of Development for Six Point Harness. She has worked as a creative producer in both features and television for over a decade, selling both comedies and dramas to FX, Comedy Central, CBS, Sundance, HBO, Sundance, Fox, Adult Swim, TBS, Cartoon Network and Sony. Prior to joining Six Point Harness, Wendy served as a Development Executive at Mosaic where she oversaw a slate of projects under a first-look deal at HBO while also spearheading the company’s first theater project with Crescendo Productions. Previously, Wendy worked for Lorne Michaels at Saturday Night Live and at Mopo Productions where she was a producer on the Oscar-winning, short documentary, Twin Towers. She enjoys crappy tv some times, strong coffee and obsesses over what hair products might finally tame her crazy, curly mane.
