Independent Film Writer/Director
I had the pleasure of working with Jennie Bushnell on seven films, two as a director. There are a couple of key characteristics that define a Jennie Bushnell performance.
One is her versatility. I’ve seen her perform a homeless Iraq war veteran, a mob hitwoman, a kidnapped pharmaceutical technician, and in the films I directed; a former helicopter pilot turned nun and a cured Zombie. All of these parts she slipped into with a high degree of believability.
The other quality is the amount depth, intelligence, heart, and compassion she brings to each performance. Even the most evil of characters gain layers of humanity that make the characterization far more interesting.
Jennie is also very much an filmmakers’ actress. Once she commits to a project, she backs it 100%. There were a couple of occasions where I was stressed as a director where she told a joke or just assured me everything would be OK.
Jennie Bushnell will make your project so much better with her participation. She certainly did with mine.

Writer and Producer at Nickel 17 Productions
Having worked with Jennie on countless film projects where I served as an actor, producer, and director, I can’t recommend her more. She brings ambition, creativity, and willingness. She takes character actor parts and makes them lead actor roles.

Talent Director at POSSIBLE
Jennifer and I have worked on several shoots together, both in large ensembles (Cincinnati Bell) and intimate, one-on-one scenes (Humana Inc.). As an actor, it’s essential to work with people who engage with the material and inhabit the role, no matter how large or small. Jennifer is a consummate professional, and a joy to work with. Her preparation is exemplary, and her joy and excitement in the process are inspiring. I’m always excited when I find we’ve been booked together, and look forward to working together in the future

The ATTAIN Acting Workshop Founder/Coach/Managing Director
Jen Bushnell has been a student of mine, but even more, a great friend. This quiet, massively talented young woman is a top notch actress. She takes her craft seriously and always presents herself as the real professional she truly is. In class, she jumped at unknown exercises and demonstrated her flexibility as an actress. She was not hesitant in leaving the safety of her box when called upon. When you need someone who can pull off any job with detailed skill, Mrs. Bushnell is your woman. Take this from someone who rarely gives a recommendation.

Jennie is a joy to work with. Highly dedicated and very professional Jennie always gave superb results while on set. When it comes to Jennie it’s difficult to pick only three top attributes when there are so many excellent qualities about her.

I saw some of Jennie’s work about a year and a half ago, and then I got a chance to work with her about a year ago and more recently as well. She is immensely talented, very professional, and definitely has the passion for her craft. It’s a producer’s dream to work with someone whose so laid back, and so easy to get along with. She was always great to have on set because she brings a smile to everyones face and I always look forward to working with her.

Jennie is an amazing actress. I’ve worked with her on a couple projects, and she is always prepared, professional, and easy to get along with. She always brings her “A” game to the set. I highly recommend working with her, and I hope to work with her again soon.
