Trai Cartwright is a Denver-based filmmaker and teacher, community-builder and storyteller.
There has never been a time in her life when she wasn’t fully immersed in stories and the people who tell them.
From NYU to Chicago to LA and back to Colorado, Trai has followed the call, diving deep into the exploration and development of every kind of storytelling: feature films, documentaries, short films, plays, web series, TV shows, and fiction and nonfiction of every kind.
Whether as a studio level development executive or as a professor at Colorado’s top writing programs, her greatest pleasure after writing is in the development of writers.
Trai has spent her entire professional life dedicated to elevating the craft and creating opportunities for filmmakers and writers of all mediums and genres. Creators are the single most important force in forging understanding and an illuminated pathway through this world.
She is currently part of the creative teams for:
Secret Ellington (Main Man Films) – feature, writer, producer
Hidden Tigers (Red Unicorn Film) – docu-series producer
Scared List (Heart Cure Productions) – web series producer
Sundown Road (Better Late Production) – short film producer

“Trai is easily one of the best analysts I’ve worked with. Her notes are consistently thorough, insightful and, most of all, ‘helpful’. She knows her stuff and communicates it well. Her notes have helped me improve every script I’ve had her read.”
