Jenny Waldo

A native of Washington, DC, Jenny graduated from USC’s School of Cinematic Arts with a MFA in Film Production where she won a directing scholarship and focused on writing, directing, and producing scripted and documentary films. While at USC, she produced several scripted and documentary thesis projects, including her own 35mm thesis film Searching for Angels which screened at the DGA’s First Look Festival. In addition to producing and directing several shorts, past credits include producing on the feature The Preacher’s Daughter and the feature documentary The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing. The latest short film she wrote and directed, the award-winning Acid Test, screened at festivals all over the world including BendFilm Festival, Austin Film Festival, and was selected for the 2018 Women in Film and Television International (WIFTI) Short Film Showcase and the 2019 AFS Shortcase at SXSW. While not making films, she teaches filmmaking and is the Program Coordinator at Houston Community College’s Filmmaking Program. Jenny is thrilled to bring its feature adaptation to life and relive her tumble through self-discovery in the early 1990’s.
