Hi, I'm Jen Wynkoop.

If you've read the homepage, you already know I'm a production professional with more than a decade of professional experience coordinating teams big and small to achieve great things on the screen.

What you may not know, is that I enjoy working on projects at all stages of production, from initial ideation & bidding through distribution and asset archive. I'm equally comfortable producing multimillion dollar media packages for brands as I am consulting with studios on best practices to make new or existing video pipelines more efficient with modern technology & process improvements.

In my free-time, I'm a serial hobbyist. From scuba diving to crochet, gardening to snowboarding, camping to researching; I frequently seek new experiences and enjoy the challenges that come with learning new skills. This site showcases aspects of both my personal & professional identity as a native New Yorker living in California. 

I graduated from Syracuse University with honors and a Bachelor of Science in Television, Radio, & Film. I'm working through the Executive Master's in Business Administration at Quantic School of Business & Technology.

 

I am a member of the Producer's Guild of America (PGA) and Hollywood Professionals Association (HPA).

Take a look around, and contact me to learn more about how I can support you and your team. Or check out my photos and other posts to get to know me a little better. I hope to get to know you, too.

 

Let's talk soon.
