EP. 31 Toni Thai : Director & Screenwriter

A published author at 8 years old, writing is where I started. A Writer is what I am. A Director is who I am. Luckily, they both work well together. Photography is a passion that feels more like giving because I love making people feel beautiful. In my latest project (Potty Break) I step in front of the camera as well as behind it; a journey that was challenging, but fun.

As a director and photographer, Toni has worked with talents such as Taraji P. Henson, Rob Lowe, Fab 5 Freddy and Ava Duvernay. It was Ava who named Toni Vibe’s Next Female Filmmaker. As a commercial and content director, her clients have included AOL, Barnes & Noble, Kmart, AT&T, The Nicki Minaj Collection, Clinique, A&E television, Tyra Banks’ Type F, and Wacoal.

Recently, she was selected by the NYC Mayor’s office for their MOME film finance lab. Through the lab, she’s developing a narrative feature film project. Currently, Toni is in Post Production on a fun and raw webseries she wrote and directed called “Potty Break”.

Toni co-produced and co-starred in the Gotham Award nominated film, “August The First”.
