If you didn’t ready know, my name is Mikayla. I am a 22-year-old independent filmmaker living in Los Angeles, California. But, my hours spent as an independent filmmaker come after my daytime gig as an office production assistant at a reality TV show company. Either way, my life is made of three things and three things only: film, film and more film.
I was born in LA, but raised on the beautiful East Coast and then educated at the University of Maryland. I have also lived in New York City and London, so you can say I have done my fair share of “living.” It’s been wonderful. Each place has blessed me with a multitude of valuable experiences that I will subconsciously regurgitate in my writing.
So yeah, that’s what I do: write. A lot. I got a journalism degree from the University of Maryland (for you know, a more “stable” degree than film), but starting around senior year, I turned my attention to a different form of writing: screenwriting. So far, I have written, directed, produced, edited and acted in three small projects of mine (all available on this site!) and nothing makes me feel happier and fulfilled. There really is nothing like bringing a vision in your head to life.
At the end of the day, I hope you find the time to give my current projects a watch (I promise they aren’t long!), give me your feedback and continue to stay tuned in to my journey as a filmmaker in Hollywood.
