Abi Corbin (THE SUITCASE)



Abi Corbin

Corbin is a writer/director/producer. She entered the New England Conservatory and University of Massachusetts at age fourteen. She completed her education in South Carolina, graduating with a Master of Arts in Performance Studies before returning to her native Boston. Finding a passion for visual communication, she worked in theater and edutainment, where her projects received regional and national recognition. Her desire to grow as a creator led her to the University of Southern California’s Graduate Production program. In the MFA program, Abi has had the opportunity to lead multiple productions. Following the premiere of "Drone" in May, Universal Studios chose Abi to direct "Luna," a short film sponsored by USC and funded by Universal. Abi then went on to create her short, "The Suitcase" which is inspired by true events. It tells the story of a Boston bred baggage handler, whose ordinary life is turned upside down when he steals a suitcase that contains terrorist plans of 9/11. Watch "The Suitcase" here (PW: boston).
