About Randi barros:

Randi is interested in storytelling as a means to enlighten, promote justice, and connect cultures and generations. A primary goal in both ISLA 340 Storytelling and ISLA 341 Cinematic Process is to help students uncover their own unique stories and translate them into screenplays and short films that question, inspire, and entertain. Past students have screened their work at the San Luis Obispo Film Festival, the Wild and Scenic Film Festival, the Santa Barbara Backyard Shorts Festival, the Cambria Film Festival, and the CSU Media Arts Festival. A storyteller over many mediums, Randi has been a film editor for over 30 years on documentary, narrative, and television productions. Recent editing projects include the short films, Pennies and Trusting Chloe as well as Lives Well Lived and Botso: The Teacher from Tblisi, both multi-award winning documentaries. She has also won awards for her screenplays, including The Chicken Festival, which is a Nicholl semi-finalist and is currently in development. In addition to Nicholl, Randi’s screenplays have been honored by the Writers Lab, CineStory, Final Draft Big Break, Athena, the Austin Film Festival, and more. Randi has also participated as a Judge and Reader for several festivals including the San Luis Obispo Film Festival, the CSU Media Arts Festival, CineStory, and the Central Coast Writers Conference.
