stories are the thing we need most in the world.”

Although White is a prolific writer, she’s an extrovert by nature, and fueled by creative collaboration. She enjoys the dynamic speed at which production moves, and the challenges of keeping that engine on track so it meets its destination on time.
As an executive producer on the thriller feature film Body, a Slamdance 2015 official selection, she knows what makes a great story, and understands interest groups and target audiences intimately. Body, repped by Preferred Content, was sold to Archstone Distribution internationally, and Oscilloscope for domestic distribution. From screenwriting to development, pre-production and the challenges that most movies face with tight budgets and production schedules, White knows how to navigate the choppy waters of filmmaking.
She’s a highly skilled director, and can work with a skeleton crew on a music video—such as the band “Weathers” signed to RCA Records—to a large crew on a feature film.
She also knows what it takes to talk with editors and a post-production team, how to market a film, bring it to festivals, and its final destination—sales and distribution. At her core, White is a skilled storyteller. She knows how to craft a memorable tale that will live on in the memories of audiences.
