Jennifer Raite (@)
Writing and directing team Chris Cullari and Jennifer Raite launched their career in 2012 with their horror-comedy short film THE SLEEPOVER, a festival darling and Vimeo Staff Pick. Their ear for dialogue and eye for world building caught the attention of Blumhouse Productions in 2014, leading to the sale of several television projects and a first look deal. The duo recently created and executive produced 12 DEADLY DAYS with Blumhouse for YouTube Red and are currently in development on their first feature film. Cullari and Raite are repped by Gersh, Stagecoach Entertainment, and Hansen Jacobsen Teller.
