Jenifer Shahin grew up in Canyon Country, California. After studying theatre for nine years, she decided to venture into film and television, first, as the co-producer and co-director of two network pilots followed by three music videos for MTV, MTV2, and FUSE. Her most recent venture was producing the feature film Analog Days, which world-premiered in the narrative competition in 2006 at the Los Angeles Film Festival. Shahin holds a BA in Cinema from San Francisco State University, where she has received numerous awards and scholarships including the Women in Film Grant. Trying to make it in Hollywood and no stranger to rejection, Shahin found solace in recording her failed attempts at success. A Letter to Elise is her first feature length script, highly personal in its content and based on her own experiences growing up as an artist in Los Angeles.
