Invisible Pictures is a New York-based, women-led, creative development and production company with a mission to produce film, television, documentary and short-form content with a focus on authentic representation, wherein people with lived experience are at the center of their own stories.

About Us

Invisible Pictures was built with inclusivity and authenticity at the forefront of our work. Emmy-nominated and Peabody-winning producer Audrey Rosenberg and actor-producer-activist Jess Jacobs, joined forces to launch the company in 2017 as a manifestation of their shared belief in the power of storytelling and its potential to share deep truths and heal fractures between communities on a global scale. Our vision was birthed from the recognition of a desperate need for culture shift toward systemic change.

Hollywood’s approach to storytelling has been largely damaging and has continually valued a white-washed, male-hierarchical view of people and the world. While the faces on the billboards and the movie posters have started to change to more accurately reflect the world around us, the shift in power to more representative voices behind those films and series has moved more slowly. Invisible Pictures is becoming a home for artists and people with lived experience to tell their own stories.

The system has made invisible people and audiences seeking to see themselves centered as heroes and as nuanced and dimensional human beings. We are committed to using our privilege and our resources inside and outside the industry to confront the white power structures at play in Hollywood and to support authentic voices on and off the screen. Invisible Pictures seeks to raise consciousness, challenge the status quo and uphold a commitment to making a positive global impact one project at a time.
