JASMINE'S FILMMAKER/WRITER BIO

Filmmaking is usually the undertaking of a writer/director. Thanks to SAG-AFTRA making it easier for actors to create their own work, Jasmine became a co-producer on the short film "Stronger", alongside her co-star, Juliet O'Brien. The two actors had originally performed August Strindberg's "The Stronger" as part of a scene in their acting class.

Years later, they met up again and hired a director, a prominent screenwriter, a film crew, and enlisted the help of friends to make it happen. After a successful fundraiser, Juliet and Jasmine were able to submit their film to various film festivals and events. Jasmine had the opportunity to speak on a panel at the East Lansing Film Festival regarding the importance of actors creating their own work.

After attending a number of film festivals and speaking to very talented writers creating their own work, Jasmine was inspired to write. She currently has a number of projects in development and has been honing her skills, taking classes at Primary Stages and with award-winning playwright, David Adam Gill.

Jasmine's monologue, "The Hypothesis" was performed at the Kraine Theater in NYC and is part of a monologue anthology called "Faces of America". Her short play, "Tree Hugger", was produced by Break a Leg Productions. Jasmine's first full length play in development was part of The Playground Experiment's First Reads Festival.

Jasmine regularly develops projects as part of her trusted partnership with The Playground Experiment, New Ambassadors Theater Company, and The Wine Box Players - All talented groups of actors and playwrights creating new works.
