“Washington Square Films has a very familial boutique vibe and their slate of docu-style storytelling is really impressive,” notes Stett. “They have such a great reputation as a company and their feature division really adds an interesting element. I’m thrilled to join the roster!”
“I was blown away by the emotion and storytelling in Carrie's work. Her work is incredibly moving. On top of that she has infused hidden camera and surprise elements in her work and always captured the big moment perfectly,” said Jonathan Schwartz, WSF Head of Marketing and Sales.
After studying Communications at Emerson College, Louisiana-native Stett made her way out to Los Angeles and eventually landed at the Tennis Channel, where she wrote and produced the travel and interview series “Open Access.” She continued to write and produce a wide range of unscripted series work, organically shifting into directing while working at ABC Studios. She directed and produced the digital comedy series “General Hospital Now!,” the comedic companion series hosted by Nancy Lee Grahn, which generated renewed interest in the soap. Stett also brought her storytelling skills to Univision’s “Drop the Mic with Becky G,” which documented the Latina pop sensation’s early days as her career was taking off. The series was nominated for a 2014 Cablefax Award.
As a writer, Stett was a semifinalist in the 2015 and 2012 Austin Film Festival screenplay competitions and was a Finalist in the 2013 Screencraft Comedy TV Pilot Launch content.view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessPress Kitchen, Mon, 10 Jul 2017 16:35:10 GMT
