A story teller at heart, Korinne Meier is passionate and unremitting about the art of filmmaking. She started as a classically trained theatre actress, performing in such venues as the Kennedy Center (Washington D.C.), Abrons Arts Center (New York), and The RedCat Theatre (Los Angeles). By the time she graduated with a Masters of Fine Arts from California Institute of the Arts, Korinne had also written several scripts. She obtained a literary agent and had a Jazz period piece script shopped around Hollywood. Her keen writing landed her on the set of ABC Family’s drama Lincoln Heights, shadowing the executive producer and showrunner. She continued to sharpen her directing and cinematography skills with the post-Civil War short drama Hidden in My Heart. Most recently her short film Nostalgia won Best Cinematography at the Made in Charlotte film contest. A number of her films have screened in film festivals all around the nation. As a professor, she has helped to grow the production arm of the UNCC film program allowing students to learn ‘real world’ on set film techniques. Korinne is also a recipient of the Chancellor’s Diversity grant. Outside of the classroom, Korinne runs her own production company. She is now busy in preproduction for an upcoming web series and currently has a feature film in development.
