brazen
/ˈbreiz(ə)n/
verb: endure an embarrassing or difficult situation by behaving with apparent confidence and lack of shame.

Brazen Productions was formed in 2017 by producer Jules Hussey in order to develop projects with and about adults with learning disabilities and to collaborate with neurodivergent creatives.

It is grounded in Jules’ own lived experience and her ongoing support of an older sibling with learning disabilities.

Brazen seeks to work with a diverse talent base in development and in production – in front of and behind the camera.

Brazen projects are bold, challenging, often funny and always inclusive.

In the first 18 months of operation Brazen Productions hosted a very successful table read for Sky drama, featuring extracts from three projects and also continued her collaboration with The Orpheus Centre by producing The Making of Orpheus the Mythical.

In 2018 Brazen also produced the Film London Calling Plus short film ‘Sasha and Jo are getting married’ written and directed by Pier Wilkie.

2019 saw the company option three publications and also complete the short comedy ‘Prodigirl’ with writer and comedian Ria Lina.

2020 has started with the company sponsoring an Adult Sibling day with the organisation Sibs who have supported Jules over many years in life and project research.

understanding and empathetic I have ever worked on.

So many producers and production companies could take note from you on: 'how to get the best out of a production company' and 'a team'. I truly believe it all filters down from the top and when 'YOU' are in charge, everyone feels happy, appreciated, confident and able to give their best

Sarah Counsell
Casting Director

A superb email was sent to all prior to filming. there was no way of improving the attitude of the work place on this job, in fact it was the most open and supportive work team I have experienced.
