About Carrie

Carrie Ferrante has been working in film and theater for the better part of her life. Along with acting in over a dozen theater productions & short/independent films, she's also written and directed several films and plays. Her main passions are screenwriting, directing, and production design. She also enjoys producing and editing. Her junior year of college she wrote, assistant directed and production designed a short film, 'Super/Heroes' and assistant directed and production designed 'Raw Umber', a long-form short thesis film. Senior year at LIU Post she was production designer for the short theses 'End of the Great American Businessman' and 'Black Dawn' (as well as being 2nd assistant director on the latter), production manager/location manager for 'Tilt of a Rose', and makeup effects artist on 'La Misfit'. Along with that she wrote, directed, produced, production designed, and edited her own thesis film, 'Us & Them', which was the first feature film to ever be produced by an undergraduate at LIU Post. She graduated with a BFA in Film (concentration in Screenwriting) with Honors/Merit Fellowship, magna cum laude, in May 2012. Since then, she was an art assistant/set dresser on the professional short 'My Cross to Bear', production designer on fellow Post students' short thesis films 'The Sampler' and 'Pose', and the director's assistant on the sequel to the cult classic comedy film, 'The Hebrew Hammer'. Her most recent position was as production manager and designer on the newest The Majors Productions film, 'Return', on which she was also an associate producer. In July 2013, four films she worked on were shown at the Long Island International Film Expo, including her own film, 'Us & Them'. 'U&T' has also shown at 3 other festivals and has won 6 awards.
