Jamari Perry

Jamari Perry is an Emmy Award winning filmmaker from the Bay Area, CA. Her films focus on popular culture and community empowerment. She has produced and directed several works of various genres including web interactives, documentary, media campaigns, and narrative films. Her experiences range from teaching as an Adjunct Professor at the University of Southern California's School of Cinematic Arts to producing award winning films, including an Emmy Award winning web interactive for PBS Frontline which examines a federal effort to investigate more than 150 cold cases that date back to the civil rights era. Jamari graduated with a MFA in Film and Television Production at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts in 2013 and is currently working as founder and producer of a minority owned production company Hush Harbor Media. Hush Harbor Media creates high quality digital content for non-profits and social justice organizations in order to amplify the work they are doing in their communities. This has been a through line in Jamari's career as she strongly believes in bringing humanity to the forefront of storytelling. When Jamari is not spending time with her biggest accomplishment to date (her son, Makai) she is continuously developing and pitching digital content, episodic, and feature films with her companions and business partners. Jamari lives by the quote that her father has instilled in her: “Great things can be slowed down but never stopped.”
