116: Jen Farris, Location Scout

JenFarrisSmile.jpg

The Locations Department has a two-fold duty. It’s part Creative and part Logistics. Jen Farris has been able to flourish in the Creative side of the department as a Location Scout. This native of Atlanta, GA seems to have her finger on the pulse of some of the city’s most historic neighborhoods. That makes her a valuable addition to any Production. Credits to her name include HBO's The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, BET's Being Mary Jane, and Sleepy Hollow, but her crowning acheivment has been her work on both seasons the hit series ATLANTA, currently airing on FX.

 

Jen sat with me to tell her origin story, her current work, and her aspirations outside of Location Scouting.
