Jean Kim has always loved the movies, but her desire to become a filmmaker only developed in earnest during her college years at the University of California, Davis, where she became a member of a feminist video production collective. Jean went on to receive her MFA in Film and Television Production from the USC School of Cinematic Arts, where she concentrated her studies in cinematography. She later received the honor of becoming a Film Independent Fellow through their Project:Involve program, receiving mentorship from cinematographer Alexander Gruszynski, ASC.

Jean is experienced in photographing on both film and video, and is capable of producing a variety of styles. Her preferences as a filmmaker go beyond the boundaries of any film genre. The projects she chooses vary in the types of stories told and the directors' visual styles, as Jean's main interest as a cinematographer lies in shooting projects that have stories she cares about and can invest herself in.
