Published on June 20, 2017

Producer Kristen Murtha is who you get when you want it done and with excellence. Raised outside Boston in a pragmatic, Irish American family, Kristen's producer star was born while watching a behind the scenes special on Finding Nemo while still in elementary school. Post college, she landed in sunny LA and soon started working for DreamWorks on giant studio animation projects like Rise of the Guardians and How to Train Your Dragon II. A consummate go-getter, she continuously took on smaller indie projects in her limited off hours from Studio Production Coordinating, steadily building up an impressive body of work that includes Associate Producing on The LEGO Ninjago Movie & Co-Producing Sundance indie favorite Band Aid, recently released through IFP & Sony Worldwide. Michal recently brought her on as Producer on her narrative feature, Born That Way. Join us for this must-listen talk that covers everything from all female crews to strolling the streets of Sydney with Jackie Chan.
