Director Biography - Tishehma Jones-Strickland

Born in Houston, TX, and raised in Los Angeles, CA, where her love and passion for performing arts is taking her to places she's always dreamed of.

Shema's had the opportunity to be a part of the film industry on and off since she was signed with, Academy Kids, at just 10 years old. In 2014, she took home the Nashville Film Festival Sci-Fi Short Screenwriting Award. Within the past few years, she's booked two international commercials (Nissan & ShoeDazzle), starred in five short films & co-starred in one feature (notably, 'A LOVE UNDEFINED' was an official selection of Atlanta's 2015 Bronze Lens Film Festival), & wrote & self-published a positive mantra book: 'Shema Jones | Life Notes'; all while representing herself. After writing, directing, starring in and producing her first dramatic short in 2015, 'A LOVE UNDEFINED', she ventured into the production side of the film industry. Her journey as a production assistant lasted for less than six months and by January 2016, she was hired by a production house in North Hollywood, HDFilms, as a production coordinator/manager and producer. There she simultaneously assisted in the coordination of three hosted/loosely scripted shows: 'Movie3Some', 'Reel Kids', and 'Weekend Ticket'. By March of 2016, she accepted a position as a visual creative in the production department of her choice of worship, Cottonwood Church of Los Alamitos, CA.

By September 2016, her short film, 'A LOVE UNDEFINED', was presented by TIFF and AXE at special, prestigious event, 'Vanguard Honours', where her film was one of three selected out of over 500 submissions. From there, in hopes to shoot her first feature, she took a detour and began building her family. It wasn't long before she wrote, directed, starred in, shot, and edited a one-min short (2018) for a "TIFF x Instagram" competition and then a one scene short (2018) for a spec to a series she created.

In August 2018, she ventured into attending drama school for the first time in her career. Studying at Identity Drama School of Acting (IDSA) for a year, allowed her to once again experience the industry from another perspective, as a student of the acting craft.

Now, she's in the middle of developing a series she's created, currently editing scripts for said series from her lead writer/producer.

With God's guidance, Shema is an award-winning actress, writer, and overall creative excited about pushing her seemingly limits & growing to become one of the greatest to ever do it.

Withholding two degrees, an Associate of Arts in Fashion Design/Marketing & a Bachelor of Science in Organizational Communication ...

Shema's showing no signs of slowing down; actively making her mark throughout film, spreading love, style, & understanding ... the world is definitely in for some awesomeness from this Pisces creative.

Director Statement

To say the least, I have a passion for empowering others, great quality, and compelling content, which has placed me in the realm of film.

Since I can remember, I've been drawn to film in such a way that's led me to not only starring in, but creating, writing, producing, and directing some really thought-provoking pieces.

The opportunity to create is nothing short of a blessing to me and I am thankful for every step of this journey!

But, you know, in short .... I'm just Shema, baby ;)
