Badass Jamaican Female Director

Hey storytellers.

After over a decade crafting content in Jamaica, I moved to NY a few years back to pursue a career directing episodic content. Alas, without an agent, I've yet to achieve the goal. I've been entering competitions and wrote, directed and self funded my own short last year. The piece...

Congrats on controlling your own content, Alana. Very inspiring and, I'm sure, extremely rewarding as well!

Best wishes! I write comedy features.

Hi Alana. Very grateful for your post. Sometimes, these articles are little more than 'follow your dreams/be true to yourself' pieces but yours was genuinely practical and helpful. I'm a British actor/writer hoping to come and work in LA soon, so your story is an inspiring one. Thank you!

Thom Reese

That's fantastic, Alana. Congrats!

Here's hoping you get more active, Danny. If there's one common denominator to all tens of thousands who have had success here over the last 9 years, it's that they treat their relationship building as a job. Put in the work, embrace the long game, reap the rewards.
