Bio of the artist:

Kathi Carey is an award-winning writer/producer/director with several features currently in development. Kathi says, “It’s important to me that each project I undertake not only entertain the audience but give them something extra. This is why, as a filmmaker, I gravitate towards stories that explore how the characters navigate the transformational turning points in their lives.” Also, probably because that was her story: she was a child prodigy in music headed toward the concert stage when she picked up her dad’s 8mm camera and there was no turning back–the destination was no longer Carnegie Hall, but Hollywood.
