Let me say now it is great to meet you all. My name is Christena, I am Producer/Writer/Director/Actor in Chicago.
This all started for me as a kid when I knew I wanted to act, while I’m college I found my schools film program and from there I knew I wanted to behind the camera as well.
I am still pretty new at this point, I did a few interships and PA work in college. I did help with distribution and marketing of a feature film. Recently I helped produce a short horror film. I am currently line producing a film, we are in the early stages of pre-production and I will be moving on to being a co-producer as things go along. I am also social media marketing another film.
I can wear quite a few different hats, when I am not doing film work, I work in Wedding and Event Planning, which keeps my producing skills sharp. I will also do social media marketing on the side.
I am still learning because there is much I still do not know, like obtaining financing. Like anyone in the entertainment industry I am making still making connections. I am looking forward to being on this site with all you wonderful people. I am excited to learn more and grow as a filmmaker.
