ABOUT SHARI

Award-winning filmmaker and born storyteller Shari jokingly says she came out of the womb with a pencil in her hand. Deceptive in its simplicity, her work is both subtle and surprising, embodying vulnerability, authenticity, and humanity across genres. 

 

Projects include films Three's Complicated, Kali's Vibe, Since Lisa, Proctor and Gamble PSA for the My Black is Beautiful campaign and the music video We’re The Ones, featuring Emmy Award nominee, Tituss Burgess. Shari was a script consultant on the second season of the Emmy Award-winning web series, We Speak New York. Throughout her career, Shari has worked with A list directors, producers, and actors including Spike Lee, Malcolm Lee, Denzel Washington, Robert DeNiro, Forest Whitaker, and Kerry Washington among others.

 

With more than two decades of industry experience, Shari is a consummate professional who creates an invigorating work environment and experience that brings out the best in both cast and crew, while skillfully navigating that delicate balance of staying on schedule and within budget.
