Jenny Waldo combines her experience as a documentarian and a scripted narrative filmmaker to produce content that speaks to the human experience. A producer, writer, director, film educator, and accomplished crowdfunder, credits include her recent feature film directorial debut Acid Test, which premiered at the Austin Film Festival and was a 2023 nominee for Best Texas Independent Film by the Houston Film Critics Association. The feature film was adapted from her award-winning, festival favorite short film of the same name. Past credits include associate-producing the indie feature The Preacher’s Daughter which sold to Lifetime, and the Starz feature documentary The Cutting Edge: The Magic of Movie Editing among various shorts, an educational series, and several music videos.
