Specificity is the new black
CHERYL ISAACSON is a Director / Writer who is drawn to unlikely female-driven stories with nuanced characters. Her award-winning micro-thriller, THE FETCH, explored the intersection between sexual assault and water scarcity, and her magical realism short, BLiP, centers around a homeless woman who finds a path through her grief with the help of a cardboard robot. She recently directed SAFETY WORK, a noirish short dedicated to the women of the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements.
A commercial director by day, Cheryl helms Lincoln Street Studios, a creative production agency. Lincoln Street’s work for global clients has been featured on BuzzFeed, Ellen, Conan, Wired and more.
Cheryl was also Creative Producer on CLEANER DAZE, a tragicomic web series centered in a teen rehab facility. The show was selected for IFP's 2017 Screen Forward Program and has won Best Writing at ITVfest, Best Series at Austin FF (both Jury and Audience awards), was nominated for a Gotham Award and was named Indiewire's #1 Web Series of 2018.
