Cintamani is a Freelance Producer & Filmmaker based in Portland, OR. Storytelling is at the heart of her work. Understanding visual language and curating the elements in the frame are her strengths. Finding the best director, photographer, talent, street artist or illustrator for the project either through her global network of agencies or street casting is her goal as a Producer. When writing & directing, she is drawn to personal stories of powerful women and world building. 

Following a degree in Film & Broadcast Production at London Guildhall University, Cintamani worked at Killer Films in New York, interning on critically acclaimed, award-winning productions such as Far From Heaven and Hedwig & The Angry Inch.

Recent commercial clients include adidas, Nike, Converse, Google, Amazon and Marvel.

Cintamani won a "Best Producer" award at DOC LA Film Festival for her work on the feature film "Thank You For Supporting the Arts". Her short films have won several awards and she most recently produced a music video for Emma Ruth Rundle, which was critically acclaimed.
