Serena Torres Webbe
Serena is proud to say that she has cinematic storytelling in her blood. She is the great-granddaughter of female filmmaking pioneer, Alice Guy Blaché, who is credited as being the first woman filmmaker in both France and the USA. Serena’s great-grandmother began her directing/producing career in 1896 and has often been recognized for having created the first ever fiction film, by being the first to use the medium to tell a visual story.
Serena has perpetuated her family’s love of storytelling through her own writing for screen and stage. She has written several short screenplays: First Date, Metronome, Tom’s Day, Vantage Point, Forever, Love Letters, Zoom Out, The Secret Agent, Twins, and Jelly as well as a feature length script, Lost and Found, for the completion of her Masters degree in Mass Communication.
Serena also holds a B.F.A. in graphic design and illustration from Tyler School of Art at Temple University. She lives in Goodyear with her husband and eighteen month old daughter, and they are expecting their second child this spring.
