This week I got to interview Kristen Carter a award winning producer and owner of www.JazziDreamer.net
Kristen V. Carter is an award-winning filmmaker, television producer, and educator from Newark, New Jersey. She has produced for a variety of television’s top programs including NBC’s The Voice, Lifetime’s Project Runway, and TV One’s #1 docu-series R&B Divas Los Angeles. In addition, Kristen has served as a speech writer for Viacom executives, including BET’s CEO Debra Lee.
Kristen has a deep-rooted passion for entrepreneurship and content creation. In 2007, she founded JazziDreamer Entertainment LLC, a multimedia company specializing in writing and production services. Since that time, Kristen has continued to write and direct projects for tv, web, and film including the award-winning short film First Date (2013), which broadcasted on Comcast Xfinity On Demand from August 2013-November 2013 and currently airs on Magic Johnson’s cable network ASPiRE TV (June 2013-Present).
Kristen’s latest independent project is a natural hair care web show Head Cases, executive produced by production phenom Issa Rae, which scored a whopping 10,000 hits online in under 72 hours of its release in December 2014. Currently, Kristen is pitching docu-series projects for television and writing her next narrative piece. Kristen is the recipient of the Goldman Sachs Institute for Entrepreneurial Thinking National First Place Prize, 2011 Hanks-Miller Screenwriting Fellowship, 2013 San Francisco Black Film Festival’s First Time Filmmaker Award, and was nominated for the 2014 FOX Global Directors Initiative.
Kristen loves to inspire students to explore their passions. She has found even greater purpose through speaking at many schools including Prairie A&M University, Stony Brook University, and her alma mater Hofstra University. Whether it’s through screen or stage, Kristen’s ultimate goal is to inspire the world through edutainment!
