Made Up Stories visited I.C.E. on 24 May for a screen industry Meet-n-Greet with 12 Western Sydney women working in varying stages of their filmmaking and film production careers.
Jodi Matterson, Lucinda Reynolds and Jane Cho from the development, production and finance company spent the evening discussing the work that Made Up Stories does and hearing about the filmmakers’ works currently in development.
Made Up Stories is committed to creating content with compelling female figures squarely at the center and enabling female directors, writers, actors, and fellow producers to tell the stories they want to tell. Founded and run by Bruna Papandrea, the award-winning producer of the HBO limited series Big Little Lies (8 Emmy Awards, 4 Golden Globe Awards), and the feature films Wild, Gone Girl (over $365 million in worldwide box office), Warm Bodies and Milk, Made Up Stories produced in its first-year acclaimed filmmaker Jennifer Kent’s The Nightingale, rising filmmaker Abe Forsythe’s Little Monsters (staring Lupita Nyong’o and Josh Gad) and the TNT pilot Deadlier Than The Male written by Harriet Warner and directed by Caméra d’Or winner Houda Benyamina.
