CLARISSA JACOBSON is a screenwriter, voice over artist, actress and producer of her own content who is originally from Minnesota - land of sky-blue waters, tater-tots, and the best State Fair in the world!
A graduate of Indiana University and the American Musical and Dramatic Academy in New York City, Clarissa started as a performer and later discovered her true passion - screenwriting. From there, she joined Twin Bridges Writing Salon - the longest-running workshop in Los Angeles.
She is best known for being the writer, producer, and creator of the multi-award-winning comedy/horror short - Lunch Ladies - based on her feature. The short went to over 100 film festivals, won thirty-nine awards, and secured distribution all over the world on Amazon's Prime Video, DarkMatterTV, Kanopy, Troma Now, and more.
Her journey with the film became the catalyst for her first book: I Made A Short Film Now WTF Do I Do With It (a guide to film festivals, promotion, and surviving the ride).
In addition, Clarissa is a voiceover artist and recently created another short - A Very Important Film - which is a five-minute mockumentary about a woman named Clarissa who made a short named Lunch Ladies and realized it wasn't important and has now made something important. It's her commentary on the prevalent snobbery that exists in the film world, which often ignores genre and comedy films thinking they aren't important.
Ms. Jacobson currently resides in Los Angeles with all the other beautiful weirdos.
