ABOUT ME

Hi! My name is Abby Tattle. I am a filmmaker and writer with a Bachelor's degree in Television & Film from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. Screenwriting is my primary passion, but I also enjoy learning and developing my skills in front end web design and social media.

 

With the rising popularity of mobile technology and social media, I believe obtaining digital literacy is incredibly valuable. My passions lie within creative expressional medias including dance and writing. It is the emotional connection between artist and audience which enthralls me and is what I desire to incorporate within my professional future as a storyteller.

 

My most recent film, EMANCIPATED, incorporates dance as re-enactment of truthful and brave, yet heartbreaking stories, told by those affected by eating disorders.

 I am currently writing a feature length horror film with my filmmaking partner, Brady Palubiski.
