Hello, I'm Jennifer. I've been working on a documentary about my sister for the last 10 years. She is developmentally disabled and a fascinating subject. Right now we're collaborating on a video blog to foster discussion and interest in the project. I've worked in Film, Comedy and Video Games since graduating from UCLA. Some of the films that inspire me: Genghis Blues, The Sound and the Fury, Fast, Cheap and Out of Control, The Cruise.
