Tara Hurley has done everything including selling vitamins at a gym to checking IDs at a bar to support her passion for film. After winning $5,000 on a radio contest in 1999, Hurley joined the digital revolution, purchasing a computer, a DV cameraa and began to teach herself the tools of the trade. After a few years of producing short films for musicians and tattoo artists, in 2005 Hurley began It's Not Easy Productions, and took on the most controversial subject in her home state of Rhode Island. In her first feature length documentary "Happy Endings?", Hurley is finally able to marry her passion for film and women's studies.
