“Vanessa was my absolute first choice for the role. She delivers an engaging and memorable performance alongside an incredibly talented ensemble cast,” Hutchinson says. “In other films that I have cast, convincing the producers that a certain actor or actress is right for a role can be a challenge, but not this time around,” since Hutchinson not only wrote the screenplay, but also produced the film.
The film’s behind-the-scenes featurette gives insight into the production process and advises filmmakers. Hutchinson encourages filmmakers to never give up on pursuing their dreams. Ten years ago, she first came up with the concept for “Hollywood Chaos” while browsing inside a Blockbuster with her mother during college spring break.
Weeks later after graduating from the University of Michigan with an Industrial & Operations engineering degree, Hutchinson drove alone cross country from Chicago to relocate to LA. She worked in the entertainment industry for several years before deciding to produce the script that she once had in the back seat of her former ’94 Geo Tracker during her cross-country road trip.

When she realizes the consequences of airing her TV special, she is torn between moving up in her career and damaging her friendships.
