Uttera Singh

Fanny Pack is directed by Uttera Singh. 

Drama has always been a part of Uttera Singh’s life. On the day she was born, her mother, who was nine months pregnant, was hit by a firecracker, and her father rescued her and rushed her to the hospital to deliver the baby. That’s how Uttera – a real life firecracker – was born and that same fiery spirit is still very much alive in her. Uttera is a 2016 MFA graduate of the USC School of Cinematic Arts. She is a recipient of one of the first ever Ryan Murphy Diversity Fellowships and just finished directing her thesis film, “Fanny Pack” starring Brian George (“Big Bang Theory”, “Seinfeld), a proof of concept for a half hour TV show. Her one-woman show “Indian Lady Shakespeare wears Underwear” is set to premiere in Los Angeles in the fall of 2016. While still attending USC, Uttera was chosen as one of the directors on the USC/James Franco feature film “Mad Whale” starring Camilla Belle, Dominic Rains, Summer Phoenix and James Franco. Uttera lives in Los Angeles. She spends her time going on adventures and then writing about them.
