Rebecca Leigh has lived in both Los Angeles and New York City with years of experience in the film industry. Her writing has been described as “entirely fresh”, “compelling and real”, and “it’s not Sorkin, but it’ll do I guess.” Her specialities are character and dialogue, with her banter called “incredible” by the Austin Film Festival. Her scripts, both produced and unproduced, have done well in multiple competitions. Some of her recent awards include Semifinalist in the Screencraft Comedy Festival, Outstanding Achievement Romantic Comedy Award at Indie Short Fest LA, and Best Short at the Phoenix Film Festival. She’s written numerous features, shorts, and episodics in many different genres. She really really wishes she’d written What We Do in the Shadows, but didn’t.
She currently lives with her bearded husband, two ancient cats, and a dog who rather alarmingly resembles a werewolf. When she’s not writing she enjoys reading, eating Taco Bell, and being like, really into Shakespeare. “Never Give Up, Never Surrender!” rleighwrites.com

Carole Kaboya is a University of Georgia Theatre Alum who has worked professionally in the thriving film and TV industry in Atlanta for the past 12 years. It was at UGA that she began her acting and writing career with original scenes and monologues. After countless struggles to find unique audition materials and characters she could connect with, Carole began writing original content for herself and others. That soon led to various writing jobs for clients both in and out of the entertainment industry as well as her web series "Bethany". As a Casting Director and Associate (MTV's Scream, CW's Legacies) she recognized the need for actors to have unique content. Carole's goal as a writer is twofold: 1) showcase an actor's individual strength as a storyteller and 2) tell stories that celebrate the beauty of diversity.
