Scrappy, DIY New Yorker Jenna Payne has a penchant for film noir, buckets of blood, and fast talking. She is currently creating lo fi animations for YouTube and working freelance commercial and film production. She won an award on her first ever short film, Feline Frenzy, and challenges herself to move forward with every project.

After Hurricane Sandy left lower Manhattan powerless, Jenna pulled together a cast and crew of intrepid filmmakers to direct the only narrative made in blacked out New York City - Darktown. The project was conceived of and shot in the final 24 hours of power outage and released online. The L.A. Neo Noir Film Festival honored the film with a 2016 Grand Jury Award.

Most recently, Jenna swapped coasts to make a home in Hollywood, U.S.A.. She is developing a slasher set against the backdrop of the collapse of the American auto industry in Flint, Mich. called The Big Three Are after Me and an Appalachian Godfather series for television called 'Shiner. The madcap series Zompire Vixens from Pluto! is being converted into a graphic novel. Whatever happens next, Jenna is looking forward to whatever is just around the corner.
