Trisha Gum


Trisha Gum is a filmmaker and fine arts artist living in Los Angeles, C.A., she started her film career working as an Art Director and Production designer on various TV shows, commercials and music videos. 

Trish transitioned into writing and directing in 2010. With her background in art direction, and her natural storytelling abilities, Trish’s films have been regarded for having a unique style and tone. 

When Trish is not making films, she spends her time working on her fine art. As a cut-paper artist, she has a unique way of changing paper into three-dimensional pop-up book-type scenes. Her artwork has a strong aesthetic that she often uses in her films.

She has worked on shows such as, Robot Chicken, Warner Bros MAD, and Adult Swim’s Frankenhole. In 2015 she won an Emmy for my work on Amazon’s Tumble Leaf, and was Head of Story on Warner Bros Lego Batman movie.

Though animation remains the majority of her professional experience, in 2010 she shifted into live-action writing and directing personal projects. In 2011 she was selected for AFI’s Directing Workshop for Women. The experience inspired her to keep creating, and since then she’s directed many shorts. Her film, HOW TO BE A FEMALE DIRECTOR, gained her recognition from Independence’s Magazine as, “ 2012’s Top Ten Filmmakers to Watch For”.
