Meet the newest member of our team: Filmmaker Engagement Manager Jaad Asante.
Before joining the Chicken & Egg Pictures program team, Jaad worked at Cinetic Media, where she identified and assessed strong fiction and nonfiction projects for financing, management, and sales opportunities. She is fascinated by the evolution of the documentary form and is excited to be at an organization that encourages and supports adventurous and impactful nonfiction filmmaking.
As Filmmaker Engagement Manager at Chicken & Egg Pictures, Jaad’s work focuses on fostering a strong AlumNest community and increasing their access to resources and opportunities by connecting them with potential funders, partners, and networks. She will produce the NEXT GEN EGG event and manage Docs by the Dozen, the organization’s shorts and series initiative.
We’re so egg-cited to have Jaad in our Nest. To learn more about her, visit our team page.
