ABOUT US

SusieBrubaker341601SBEDIT_edited_edited.

Susie Brubaker

Susie is a native of Los Angeles and hails from a filmmaking family. During high school, Susie would visit her father on the set of Rocky IV and taught herself photography which remains a creative practice today.  She was lucky enough to travel with her family to many film sets around the United States to visit her father on films such as RAGING BULL and THE RIGHT STUFF.  When a chance to work on the COBRA film arose, Susie left Santa Monica College to begin her film career.  With experience in the costume department, production office, and as a teamster, Susie found her home in Visual Effects. Some of the features Susie has worked on are THE NUTTY PROFESSOR I & II, DRAGONFLY, MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE, and SERENITY.

 

Susie co-produced Shonda Rhimes' directorial debut, Blossoms & Veils alongside Wendy Richardson and Patti Pagliei.

In 2019 Susie formed Mighty Force productions with Wendy. Telling meaningful thought-driven true stories has always been a passion.

Wendy Richardson

Wendy Richardson began her career in New York working on independent films. She spent the next fifteen years coordinating the art departments on feature films such as The Hudsucker Proxy, Forrest Gump, The Jungle Book, Indian in the Cupboard, For Love of The Game, Nutty Professor II, The Fast and The Furious and We Were Soldiers. 

Prior to joining the staff at Warner Brothers as a feature film estimator,  Wendy line-produced Shonda Rhimes’ directorial debut, Blossoms & Veils, engaged a literary agent for her middle-grade novel and became a summer foster mom to a nine-year-old from Siberia, Russia. 

In 2007 she completely changed gears and moved to Austin, Texas, and worked on the front lines of autism care for a non-profit for 10 years. She embarked on the adventure of IVF to become a single mom by choice to twins, Violet and Breiten.  Wendy lives with her long time love, Eduardo, stepdaughter Madelyn, twins, and a dog called Pants.
