MEET THE INSTRUCTOR: Sienna Beckman

Sienna grew up in northern California and loves writing poetry, playing her ukulele and playing with her kittens (shut up, they'll always be kittens...). For work she's a producer who wants to emphasize storytelling and the grimy, flawed beauty that is real life. She strives to meld the Creative with the Industry and collaborate with passionate, high-caliber individuals who are dedicated to their craft. She's currently one of the co-founders of Emergence Films (www.emergencefilms.us), the head of production at the YouTube channel Anna Akana (www.youtube.com/annaakana), and an active member of iWe, a group that promotes gender balance in the industry and focuses on creating an Industry that Works for Everyone (www.iwesummit.com).
