Shareese is a freelance producer (Brooklyn, NY). Her introduction to film & television actually began while she worked in public relations world at Ogilvy Public Relations Worldwide and Porter Novelli – two of the most renowned agencies in the world – drafting scripts for video and audio news releases, managing b-roll shoots, writing and producing public service announcements, patient testimonial videos and corporate highlight. Rather than accept an offer to become an agency Vice President, Shareese, a graduate of Duke Ellington School of the Arts (Washington, DC) decided instead to return to her roots in the arts community and concentrate on pursuing her passion for film and television.

She began as a Production Assistant and Grip on independent feature and short film projects, including “Able Danger” and “Happy Birthday” and on the set of TV Land’s interstitial and commercial shoots where she learned the “ins and outs” of the industry hands-on.

Shareese received more formal training in studio and field production at the Brooklyn Access Cable channel where she completed certificates in both areas, and has since developed and lent her skills to several programs airing on the station.

Shareese spent three years as an Associate Producer at CatScape Productions in NYC where she produced a number of independent music videos, helped produce a documentary about a woman with a rare, life-threatening spinal condition, served as Production Manager for a television pilot, wrote scripts for numerous commercials and educational videos, interviewed spokespeople, managed a host of b-roll shoots and assisted with line production for a number of projects.

Shareese holds a B.A. in Advertising/Public Relations from Pennsylvania State University and was enrolled in the public relations graduate certificate program at George Washington University before relocating to New York in 2000. She is currently completing a television and film production certificate at New York University (NYU).
