Originally from Newark, New Jersey, Dawn M. Green attended New York University where she received a BFA for Film and Television Production and minored in Africana Studies. After graduation, Dawn went immediately to camp in Upstate New York. There, she spearheaded and implemented a film program for teenagers living in underserved communities. Campers were able to write and shoot 5-minute films, which were then screened in a local movie theater. Dawn continued to work with teens as a mentor and a teacher for two years and still keeps in touch with some of her campers and mentees, some of who went on to study film at New York University.
Dawn also wrote and directed several pilots and a short film while in New York. Her original TV pilot, Noho, PA, won the 2007 Teen Nick Young Voices Fellowship. It was screened in the Mixed Roots Film and Literary Festival in 2008.
Dawn later moved to Los Angeles to actively pursue a career in writing and acting. She attended the American Musical and Dramatic Academy where she studied musical theater. Since then Dawn has written and produced several New Media projects.
Her web series, Lila, Long Distance, can be viewed on KoldcastTV. Her most recent comedy web series, Side Kick Girls, won the 2011 NYU Alumni Web Series Showcase. Dawn recently wrote and directed a short film entitled, “Did You Look For Work This Week?” The film featured Mary Jo Catlett from “Serial Mom” and “Glee” and stars Kelsey Scott.
Dawn currently lives in Los Angeles where she has formed an in-house production company, Maybe On Tuesday Productions. She continues to write, produce and act in collaboration with other artists.
