CLARISSA JACOBSON is a screenwriter and filmmaker who creates original content under her Rebel Minx Banner. She’s originally from Minnesota - land of sky-blue waters, tater-tots, and the best State Fair in the world!
Clarissa 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 forty-three 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.
