Check out our interview with producer and director Lisa Caprelli. Lisa is best known for her children’s brand Unicorn Jazz.
The award-winning Amazon book series, Unicorn Jazz, follows a shy unicorn on adventures teaching empathy, kindness, love, belonging, and more. The success of the book series has led to the Amazon TV show Unicorn Jazz Presents The Thing I Do which Lisa both produces and directs. Inspired by Sesame Street and with the help of the multi media brand of Unicorn Jazz, kids send in their own video content, music, and talent to be part of the show. Lisa has made it her mission to make Unicorn Jazz accessible to educators to help expand children’s imaginations and inspire creativity and learning in the classroom. Lisa has been featured in Forbes Magazine, ABC News, CBS News, USA Today, and many more for her innovation and creativity in the children’s market.
When not working, Lisa devotes her time to such charities as Read Across America as well as book drives at the LA Food Bank, Orphanages in Vegas and Haiti, and children’s hospitals.
