About Tiffany Littlejohn

Bio_Photo.jpg

Tiffany Littlejohn is an independent screenwriter and film director. Born in San Francisco, California and raised in Oakland, Tiffany has always had an affinity with the arts. Coming from a very creative family, she was challenged to seek out her form of artistic expression and ultimately found herself in dance composition, writing, and directing. 

 

She attended Oakland’s Skyline High School where she cultivated her talent by writing short stories and choreographing the school musicals. To gain a formal understanding of writing she continued her studies by earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature at California State University, Hayward. Desiring to perfect her craft, she attended the New York Film Academy in Los Angeles, CA where she earned a Master of Fine Arts in Filmmaking and Cinematography. 

 

Tiffany’s style is highlighted in her thesis film, The Perfect Sacrifice, as she brings strong visual components and intense emotional depth to all her characters in telling the tragic story of Emmett Till from the perspective of his mother, Mamie Till-Mobley. The Perfect Sacrifice first premiered in New York City in June 2014 as part of the American Black Film Festival HBO Short Film Competition. It went on to screen at numerous festivals across the country, with major recognition from the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s Los Angeles Short Film Showcase in August 2017, where it was one of only five films selected to screen. 

 

Her most recent project, a short film titled (N)CONVENIENCE, explores the dynamics of policing communities of color through the lens of a tough-minded veteran police officer, his partner—a rookie cop, a young-professional couple, and a group of neighborhood locals. The project seeks to add to the ongoing discussion of community policing by delving into the strained and often conflicted relationship between officers, race, and culture. 

 

Tiffany has various projects in development and is working with DME Production on her first Feature length film, as well as developing a short scripted episodic series on the book, "Financial Freedom – My Only Hope" with the author Jeremiah J. Brown.
