Film * TV * Internet
Chelsey Dailey has been the primary visionary of WooMen. She graduated from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts with a BFA and academic honors. She began interning with Darren Aronofsky and Eric Watson’s company Protozoa Pictures (The Wrestler, Requiem for a Dream) as a freshman. This developed into a beautiful mentorship that allowed Chelsey to work on Aronofsky’s film The Fountain produced by Warner Bros. Pictures and shot in Montreal. After she moved to L.A., she worked on the set of Joel Schumacher’s The Number 23 starring Jim Carrey. But when she became Apatow Production’s producer Shauna Robertson’s assistant, she knew comedy was her genre. During this time, Chelsey worked on Knocked Up, Superbad, Pineapple Express, and Forgetting Sarah Marshall, among the best producers, writers, directors, and performers in the comedy world.
As an actress, Chelsey studied at the renowned Stella Adler Studio of Acting in New York City and received her degree in theater from NYU. Additionally she spent a summer studying Stanislavski’s methods in St. Petersburg and The Moscow Theatre Arts School in Russia. Often cast in comedy, she had a role in Superbad and has improvised with Robin Williams on the main stage at The Upright Citizens Brigade.
