CHARISSE SANTHA

Producer / Content Creator

As an independent producer based in Dallas, I bring 20+ years of experience to the production table as a producer, director, writer, production manager, and casting director. I've produced a wide variety of broadcast and digital media for the corporate sector, including Fortune 500 companies such as AT&T, JCPenney and GameStop, countless commercial spots, and an array of projects for non-profit organizations like Junior Achievement and The Urban Land Institute. From travel adventure and exercise programs to competition and cooking shows, my background in Television Production includes a variety of unscripted formats.

As a team leader, I am known for my ability to manage both resources and expectations while keeping projects on schedule and on budget. I foster a collaborative vibe on set and enjoy working with people who share my work ethic and enthusiasm. Being resourceful and detail-oriented with strong organizational and interpersonal skills has served me well on arduous shoots. I have shot extensively throughout the United States and internationally and have an in-depth knowledge of what it takes to film on location. And through the years, I've had the opportunity to cultivate a network of diverse and talented production crew and staff.  

Residing in North Texas, I enjoy an outdoor lifestyle and travel. My never-ending curiosity always has a question ready, and I possess this innate and unbridled enthusiasm for projects that revolve around the environment, animal advocacy, and true stories where David overcomes Goliath.

I make things happen

I am also a USAT (USA Triathlon) certified Race Director, who co-founded an eco-friendly Triathlon production company in Dallas, Texas, called BIG EARTH RACING. For over a decade, I have been producing Triathlons in the state of Texas. Each race season, Big Earth Racing is an active participant in the DFW triathlon community, helping to engage first-time triathletes, offering affiliated training programs, and fundraising for animal rescue organizations and the local firefighters. Producing live events with a multitude of moving parts, along with the risk of injury or even death to racers, has added a unique and valuable cog in my production wheelhouse.
