Jill D’Agnenica is a filmmaker and visual artist. The Los Angeles Times called her directorial debut Life Inside Out (starring Maggie Baird and Finneas O’Connell) “a gentle, poignant drama whose heart and head are squarely in the right place.”

During the Covid-19 stay-at-home orders, Jill directed two full length virtual concerts for the 130 member Angel City Chorale, filming both in-person and remotely.

As an editor, Jill has crafted over 80 hours of prime-time television as well as several independent features, music videos, and shorts. Her television credits include Big Sky, Ordinary Joe, Creepshow, Party of Five, How to Get Away with Murder, Lucifer, Pretty Little Liars, Switched at Birth, Undercovers, and Hollywood Heights, and The Division.

Jill has a BA in History from UCLA and an MFA in Visual Art from Claremont Graduate University. She was a director in the Disney | ABC Directing Program and the CBS Directors Initiative.
