“I wanted to work with kind, brilliant people on a project from start to finish.”

Unleashed in Denver, Colorado, Amanda Upson began her film and media career in 2013 after fleeing big firm law practice and setting out for the wilder west of film production. Her outstanding reputation in the legal field and her unparalleled ability to get stuff done led to a serendipitous partnering with Little Turtle Pictures. Over the past 5,280 unbillable hours, she and her partners at Little Turtle Pictures have been responsible for developing the future of film and television’s most acclaimed features and series. Amanda excels at developing a strategy and revels in executing its details. After graduating from UVA, she earned her JD (cum laude). She co-founded the Denver chapter of Mother Attorney Mentoring Association, which has grown to a mentoring and networking group of more than 300 attorneys. The best evidence of her persuasive abilities can be found on the days Amanda serves as Lunch Lady, when she convinces each kid passing through the line to eat two servings of vegetables.
