About Krista

Krista Gano has over 25 years in the entertainment industry. She started her career producing and acting in the feature Chicks, Man. She then immersed herself in the business aspect of Hollywood by spending the next five years as an assistant to Dustin Hoffman. Krista eventually moved back to theater, working with Tony Award-winning producers Steven Eich and Randall Arney at the Geffen Playhouse. In 2002, Krista took on the role of Executive Director for the World Famous Groundlings Theatre where she worked with actors, such as Kristen Wiig, Annie Mummolo, Jim Rash, Nat Faxon, Michaela Watkins, Will Forte, Edi Patterson, Mikey Day and more. In 2014, she founded The Working Artist Group, offering Business, Coaching and Management Services to the working artist. She directed and produced the award-winning DIME SHORT, THE FAMILY HOOD & LOSING ANTONIA. Krista recently started Firefly Rev Studios and co-wrote features INVISIBLE (Stage 32 Comedy Screenplay Semifinalist, 2022 Quarterfinalist Atlanta Film Fest Screenplay Contest, and 10% Overall Script on Coverfly) and The WIANCÉE (adapted from the book, THE WEEKEND WEDDING ASSISTANT by Rachel Gladstone). In 2020, Krista partnered with SeriesFest’s Pitch-A-Thon to mentor artists as they take their projects out for the all important pitch. She is in development with her next project DUSTY ACRES, and slated to direct her first feature, COMFORT FOOD later this year.
