Biography Get ready for an explosion of color and morally questionable characters! Kathryne hails from Syracuse, NY, and was educated in NYC at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy. The characters she writes/directs are generally those on the fringes of modern society. Losers, delinquents, loners. Those are her heroes! The little guy/gal!
In 2010, she optioned her first feature length screenplay, "Sunny Days Weight Loss," a dark comedic thriller about mysterious murders happening in a Lumpkin, Georgia weight loss clinic where double crossing, adulterous employees are beginning to drop like flies.
After penning a series of short films including "Sketch" and "Happy Birthday, Ray!" that were accepted into dozens of festivals and taking home some awards, Kathryne wanted to focus her attention on feature filmmaking. She took a year off, and wrote a feature length version of her award winning short, "Happy Birthday, Ray!" and it became an Academy Nicholl Quarterfianlist in 2014. It went on to take home honorable mention at the Westfield Screenwriting awards, and was a finalist in Bluecat, Screencraft, and Final Draft Big Break contests.
Additionally, for "Happy Birthday, Ray!" Kathryne was selected for the Toronto Story Lab at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) through her high scores on the Blcklst.
She won the short film production grant in 2014 at the Richmond International Film Festival for her spec script, "Sleep to Dream" which they produced and shot in house, produced by Heather Waters.
Currently, Kathryne is in pre-production on a feature film she wrote called "Hemorrhage" that she will be directing and starring in. Shooting begins October 2017 and will be an Abhorrent Behavior Production.
Kathryne writes copy and VO for unscripted material like documentaries and television docu-series presentations in addition to her narrative work.
