More about Hubbard and Morning Star Studio:
From her early career beginning with her opening of her first business in the late ‘70’s to her development of Morning Star Studio, the award winning
production house, Hubbard has worked her way up the ladder of the television industry.
She became Little Rock’s first female photographer in the early 1980’s, and went on to produce projects for the major advertising agencies and photographers into the 1990’s. Hubbard has worked with every major television network in the country, and several international networks. Her work in commercial television production has included every major business corporation, financial institution, medical facility and real estate agency in Arkansas.
Mary Steenburgen hired Hubbard to be Casting Director for the feature film,”End of the Line.” Made in Arkansas in 1986, the film featured Steenburgen, Kevin Bacon and Holly Hunter. ABC Circle Films also employed Hubbard to cast and wardrobe the Arkansas mini-series AMERIKA back in the ‘80’s. Hubbard went on to produce and direct innumerable projects in the state of Arkansas and beyond.
Her work has been honored on numerous occasions, with countless local and regional Addy Awards. National honors include the “Gracie Award” given by The National Association of Women in Television and Film Foundation. This award, presented at New York’s Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, was a highlight of Hubbard’s career.
After 20 years working with advertising agencies in Arkansas, Hubbard turned her talents to documentary filmmaking in 1993, when she decided to tell the story of the Women’s Emergency Committee. That started her on her path of documentary filmmaking. She has been an active member of the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival Screening Committee since the early ‘90’s, and has served on their National Advisory Board.
Sandra Hubbard is particularly pleased to offer these documentaries and archives to schools, universities, libraries, historical societies, individuals and communications companies.
