WE ARE FREEDOM FIGHTERS
Taura Musgrove is a filmmaker from Baltimore, MD and a graduate student in Film and Media at Johns Hopkins University with extensive experience as an administrator, producer and educator. She formally started her career as a school administrator, and was instrumental in founding the Oakland School for the Arts in Oakland, California with then Oakland Mayor, Jerry Brown. The filmmaker disguised as administrator ardently understood her desire to prosper as an artist herself, as she embraced the journey to transition her work into the film industry. She took it by storm as award-winning actor Delroy Lindo’s executive assistant, a short independent film producer/director/writer whose first short film won an honorable mention award at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival, and Production Manager and Associate Producer for the Documentary Department of Pixar Animation Studios. An actor by training, she continues to study and perform for the love of the craft and to develop her writing/directing skills. She is committed to utilizing her unique perspective, lens and experience to create authentic stories about the experiences of women of color too often omitted from media.
