Autumn Watlington grew up in the small southern town of Greensboro, NC. She was always drawn to entertainment, and her love of writing, music, and storytelling eventually led her to pursue a career in narrative film. Autumn graduated from the University of North Carolina in Greensboro with a degree in Media Studies, attended the Master in Administration program at Boston College, studied film and TV screenwriting from UCLA’s extension program, and received her MFA in Producing from the American Film Institute Conservatory, the number one film school in America.
While in Los Angeles, she interned at Atlas Entertainment, was accepted into the prestigious executive trainee program at Sony Pictures Entertainment working for the president of motion pictures, worked in business affairs at William Morris Endeavor and as a Creative Associate for comedian and actress Tiffany Haddish’s She Ready Productions.
Autumn’s producing projects have screened and won awards at festivals worldwide like Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival, Barcelona International Film Festival, and the U.S. China Film and TV Industry Expo. She hopes to continue to make films that promote diversity and tackle thought-provoking subjects that challenge viewers’ traditional ways of thinking.
