Scrappy, DIY New Yorker Jenna Payne has a penchant for film noir, buckets of blood, and fast talking. She is currently creating lo fi animations for YouTube and working freelance commercial and film production. She won an award on her first ever short film, Feline Frenzy, and challenges herself to move forward with every project.
After Hurricane Sandy left lower Manhattan powerless, Jenna pulled together a cast and crew of intrepid filmmakers to direct the only narrative made in blacked out New York City - Darktown. The project was conceived of and shot in the final 24 hours of power outage and released online.
Most recently, Jenna swapped coasts to make a home in Hollywood, U.S.A.. She is developing two narrative features, a slasher and a period mob movie, as well as Zompire Vixens from Pluto!, which is a web series designed for branded content. She is looking forward to whatever is just around the corner.
