Film Consultant Jaclynn Robinson Is Inspired By

Jaclynn-Robinson-ticketsAs Jim has written before, “A ticket to a great show or game is not just entertainment — it’s a personal upgrade.” Seeing a live show can — and often does — inspire your own personal creativity.

Here’s another interview with an inspiring, creative person from Goldstar Pulse. If you’ve ever wondered how crime dramas create such real-life characters and storylines, then it’s time you met film consultant Jaclynn Robinson. Through her company Nine Muses Productions, she brings psychology and criminology to TV and film. And it all started with a childhood trip to Snow White on Ice.

Read a few of her answers below, then head over to Goldstar Pulse for more about Jaclynn.

Tell us about what you do.
I’m a consultant, film producer and humanitarian at heart. My background is in criminology and psychology, so I consult for television shows and films. I owe Spike and G4 a special thanks for my early (and fun) start on shows like 1,000 Ways to Die and That’s Tough. I also work in film production, with a particular interest in psychological thrillers and crime/action projects. Antoine Fuqua is one of my favorite directors; I’d work with him in a heartbeat!

What’s your next big goal?
I’m a year away from finishing up a Ph.D. in psychology, so my eye is on the prize. I’d like to get into more humanitarian work overseas and maybe collaborate on a documentary or two.

Tell us about a live show that excited and inspired you.
I’m a huge fan of horror films, so when I went to London I saw the play The Woman in Black at Fortune Theatre. It was haunting, eerie … everything one would imagine. I was inspired by the intimacy of the venue, the cast and the set design, all of which helped tell the story. Subtlety can be better sometimes; no CGI or major sound effects required. Theater is great at this, and it’s a good reminder for those of us in film.

What live show had the most impact on you as a child?
I remember watching Snow White on Ice when I was maybe five or six, and I loved the liveliness of the show. The costumes, the music, and the lights reeled me in. I started putting on plays at home soon after that, and would watch the live awards shows on TV and count down the days until I could be there.
