As coordinator for Scenarios USA, she oversaw the development and implementation of a youth-based regional writing contest and the short film MANchild with premiered on Showtime. As Program Manager for a Knight Foundation Media Literacy grant for urban teens, she collaborated to create youth-driven stories which aired on radio and with the PBS affiliate, Ideastream.
After a successful run, Kailyne’s first short received distribution with Indiepix and Shorts TV Domestic/International. She is currently a Producer/Writer for Amarok Productions, whose last short film, The Painter, premiered at the Montreal World Film Festival, and screened in Ireland, New York, Chicago and LA.
