A Jersey girl through and through, Chelsea Courtney was raised on a robust diet of outdoor adventure and James Taylor. (You thought I was going to say Springsteen...that's also true).
When not making an absolutely delicious mess in the kitchen, as any daughter of a chemist and home cook would, she’s finding new running routes through Central Park and destroying another game of Jeopardy.
She’s equal parts brains, brawn, intense stubbornness, and deep sensitivity, all shoved in a five-foot-two package. She’s a fierce leader with the passion and charm to back it up (just look at those pearly whites!).
Chelsea now resides in Manhattan where she’s working on her next self-produced project and still trying to prove she’s the best at everything.
2022 UPDATE: LOCKED DOWN has officially received online distribution! You can rent the film HERE
LOCKED DOWN is a pandemic-era dramady following two roommates, Alyssa and Bailey, who have been stuck together in their tiny New York City apartment. They didn't get along to begin with, and the shutdown has only made it worse. When a winter storm knocks out the power, they’ll be forced to actually interact, maybe even reconcile.
Chelsea's film was screened all over the US: in Los Angeles at Lady Filmmakers and Venice Shorts, Dallas at Topaz Film Festival, and New York at YoFiFest.
LOCKED DOWN is also Chelsea's debut as a writer and producer- all created in the throes of the shutdown.
