Adding to our growing team members for Headhunt Revisited is script writer for the documentary film, Elle Russ. I met Elle many years ago at a conference and was impressed by her energy – physical and mental. When we sat down, I told her the story of Caroline and Margaret. Her reaction was nothing short of astonishment that these two young women of the 1920s would take on such a dangerous journey to paint portraits. Over the years, Elle has demonstrated her belief in the Headhunt Revisited goals.
A native of downtown Chicago, Elle launched her passion for writing at the world famous The Second City, Chicago where she wrote and performed sketch comedy. After moving to Los Angeles, Elle continued sketch comedy writing as a main company member at the renowned Acme Comedy Theater in Hollywood. Elle eventually broadened her writing horizons to include TV & Film and currently writes within a variety of genres: Drama, comedy, natural history, and documentary.
