About MelissaM

To Whom It May Concern,

I'm thrilled to be applying for your position. As the owner of Outtake Productions- a production company in NJ, I feel I’m an ideal candidate for this position. As a showrunner with Outtake Productions, I have produced, edited and written many award-winning short films and digital series, including Or So the Story Goes which is a young adult series that even YA author RL Stine commented on, saying, "Chilling fun. I love this twisted web series. It gives me the deep shudders, and I know young people will find it horrifyingly entertaining!"

As an indie filmmaker and producer, I’ve held many roles throughout production and am highly skilled in development, production, and post-production processes; including creating my own social media spots. In 2019 I was honored with an Excellence in Digital Series Promotion award for my work.

As a writer, I am always coming up with new ideas and concepts. I have a passion for scripted series and promo work, am exceptionally detail-oriented, and am a prolific multi-tasker. Bringing videos to life is my heart song and I feel most in my element when making it happen! I’m also fully vaccinated and boosted.

Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns. I hope to speak with you soon.

Sincerely,

Melissa Malone
