Episode 304: Marti King Young – Filmmaker

Marti King Young is an award winning filmmaker and author of the book “Help! I Have An Audition! Now What?” Known for her writing, directing, and producing skills, Marti’s work has been seen on HBO, Showtime, television, film festivals, and on the internet. She has been featured in the German publication Cinewomen for her contributions to women in film, and was the 2015 recipient of the Women in Film and Television Finishing Grant. She currently works on the ABC show Kevin (Probably) Saves The World and is in pre-production on several different projects, both for film and television. 



Her short film, STOLEN, won her the Best Director award at the Miami Beach Film Festival 2018. She’s a proud member of the Alliance of Women Directors.

As a director, it’s her goal to create quality content that’s genuine and authentic. It’s her honor to be a woman in this industry, and she hopes to, along with so many other talented women, pave the way for future female filmmakers so we can have an equal voice and equal pay.
