Hey, I'm Shallow Graves Productions!

New York, New York

Shallow Graves strives to tell small stories that embody the human experience while exploiting the universal three-dimensionality of all people — whether those people live on a small screen, big screen, or eight times a week in a tiny blackbox. In this political climate and beyond, the goal is to focus on stories — damn good stories — by women about women, while providing platforms for intersectional storytelling by amplifying the voices of women of color and other marginalized groups.
