Born in Maryland, Cailin grew up in Arkansas, then graduated from college in Michigan with a Media Production degree. After additional cinematography training in the Czech Republic, she settled in NYC and partnered with director Ani Simon-Kennedy to start Bicephaly Pictures – one of just a few female production companies in the city – shooting films, music videos, web series, and commercials.
With Bicephaly Pictures, Cailin shot over 100 pieces of digital content for a variety of brands including Bloomingdale’s, Artsy, Gagosian, MoMA, and Paperless Post. She conceptualized and shot four web series for James Franco TV, Glamour, and Dailymotion. Her music videos screened at SXSW, Anthology Film Archives, and Scandinavia House.
In the fall of 2013, Bicephaly Pictures premiered their first feature film DAYS OF GRAY which The Hollywood Reporter called “An assured debut that should attract attention on the fest circuit and connect with musical tastemakers” and Fandor described as “…mossy, wind-battered bleak expanses, rocky cliffs and black-sand beaches photographed in attractive, awe-struck widescreen compositions.” DAYS OF GRAY won Best Emerging Narrative at the 2014 Oaxaca Film Festival.
She is currently in pre-production on the feature film THE SHORT HISTORY OF THE LONG ROAD, winner of the Bruce Dern Best Screenplay award at Bentonville Film Festival and part of Emerging Storytellers at the 2015 IFP Film Week.
