DIRECTOR | PRODUCER | SCREENWRITER
Jenny Kleiman is a director, producer, and screenwriter.
Born in Manhattan and raised in Charleston, SC, Jennifer “Jenny” Kleiman received her BFA in Film Production with a minor in Women and Gender Studies from University of Colorado at Boulder.
Her industry experience began with an apprenticeship under Roman Coppola at The Directors Bureau in 2011 until various commercial work took her on the road in 2013.
In 2014, Jenny co-founded her production company, The Royal Wild, with childhood friend and collaborator, Kayla Morrisey. Focused on both feature and commercial work, their growing commercial roster includes international brands such as Adidas, BMW, and SEE Eyewear. Further, the company’s first feature project, KILL THE FLEURS, is currently in pre-production for Spring 2020; a co-production with Adrenaline Entertainment.
As a screenwriter, Jenny's first feature script, AMERICAN PRINCESS, was featured on The Black List as the #1 Trending Script for two weeks in March 2019 and finished #16 overall for the first quarter. She is currently in development on her first pilot- the dystopian YA drama, BOUND.
Jenny is also the co-founder of the startup, Women's Independent Film Channel, or WIFC TV, a streaming service cultivating exposure for women in film. WIFC TV was selected for the competitive 2017 class of Project Entrepreneur by the Rent the Runway Foundation.
Jenny loves living in New York, throwing pottery on a wheel, and her very good boy, Vali, a Border Collie mix.
