Producer Profile: Charlotte Huggins

Production Company: nWave Pictures

Charlotte Huggins experienced many facets of the entertainment industry before realizing her passion for special venue productions. As a first time writer/producer, she made Interview 15. A docudrama made with one roll of film, Interview 15, was honored by several film festivals, including the New York and Berlin Film Festivals, as the best Educational Film of the Year. Huggins sharpened her marketing skills in order to raise funds to do three more docudramas before taking a job as head of public relations with Stephen J. Cannell Productions.

At Cannell, Huggins got a job in story development with television legend Roy Huggins, who later became her father-in-law, and went on to write for the hit show Hunter. She was soon offered a position at Boss Film Studios, where she produced several Clio Award-winning Magnavox television campaigns. However, Huggins finally discovered her niche when Boss won the contract for the special venue attraction Journey to Technopia, which was created exclusively for the 1993 Korea World Expo. Journey to Technopia, for which she served as producer, received rave reviews and proved to be a breakthrough in ride film technology.

Huggins subsequently went on to work on a number of highly successful large format films, including serving as visual effects producer for Disney’s themepark attraction Honey I Shrunk the Audience and Sony Pictures Classics’ film Wings of Courage, which starred Val Kilmer. She also acted as producer for LG Group’s 35mm 3-D attraction film Ahead of Time and executive producer for the “King Kong” sequence in WGBH/Nova’s Special Effects: Anything Can Happen. Huggins currently serves as President of nWave Pictures, and has served as producer of all of nWave’s giant screen productions, including Thrill Ride, 3-D Mania: Encounter in the Third Dimension, and Haunted Castle.
