Amanda's earliest creative endeavours involved running around her grandmother's house turning household objects into musical instruments. She later went on to write a poem getting her sent to the guidance counsellors office and then staged a few plays in small black box theatres around New York City. After turning down the opportunity to study engineering for free at several universities, she decided to pursue a more lucrative career in journalism.
Always fascinated with what makes us tick as human beings, exploring what lives in the cracks of our individuality and ultimately how we can be so extraordinary yet ordinary at the same time. She is forever grateful to have found her creative sister in Susanne. Most of their work together explores these themes through the lens of technology- how are we evolving both biologically and psychologically with technology both at our sides and emeded within us?

Below is a selection of her work as a Producer.
Susanne was born in a country that no longer exists, the GDR, teaching her that so much of our identity is based on storytelling. Growing up in the Black Forest she immersed herself in amateur acting , choose-your-own-adventure books and tiny protests to save the local library. In 2001 she moved to London to study Cinematics and has since zigzagged from TV Producer/Director via startup CEO to Senior Editor & Creative . Having directed a number of music promos & art projects, she has found a magical match in Amanda to create narrative films that combine her fascination with sociology, technology and the sometimes dark, sometimes humorous intricacies of the human condition.
Past clients include BAFTA, C4, BBC, Sony Pictures, Disney, The Guardian, Unilever, Bacardi, M&S, BA, London Design Festival, LFW, Jimmy Choo, The Hollywood Reporter and The National Geographic.
