Hey! I am Kimisha Renee!
I am a Los Angeles based filmmaker and I am dedicated to telling diverse stories that leave others moved, touched, and inspired.
I am focusing on directing, producing, and writing, with an emphasis in virtual production, in the division of Film and Television Production at the University of Southern California. I was awarded the USC Grant, FAO Scholarship, and the NAACP N-SPIRE Scholarship to attend the School of Cinematic Arts.
I am an alum of the: SUNDANCE Institute Collab Directing: Visual Storytelling Workshop (Scholarship), AMERICAN FILM INSTITUTE Cinematography Intensive for Women, sponsored by: Panavision and RED Digital Cinema, and RESPECTABILITY ENTERTAINMENT LAB, sponsored by: The Walt Disney Company, Sony Pictures Entertainment, NBCUniversal, ViacomCBS, A&E, Final Draft, The Harnisch Foundation, the Murray/Reese Foundation, and the Pop Culture Collaborative.
Furthermore, I am proud to share that I am a winner of USC’S FUTURE OF THEMED EXPERIENCES, judged by senior entertainment executives from: Marvel, The Walt Disney Studios, Warner Bros Discovery, Paramount Pictures, Prime Video and Amazon Studios, Epic Games, Dolby Laboratories, and Iron Mountain Entertainment Services.
I aspire to hire at least 50% women, BIPOC, LGBTQ +, and disabled cast and crew members on every project. I champion inclusion riders to hire diverse film production employees in leadership positions above and below the line. Additionally, my sets are environmentally friendly to support efforts to end climate change. I especially enjoy action, adventure, fantasy, science fiction, and super heroine series and films.
I am pursuing the route of directing virtual productions. I am inspired by gaming technology, world building, and imagining the impossible. I am in development on a feature film and television series, as well as a graphic novel and video game. I am devoted to telling impactful stories that evolve the world. I am optimistic about my future and I am thankful for my blossoming career. I am looking forward to connecting with other like minded collaborators and making a positive contribution.
