NYU Tisch Undergraduate Film & TV alum and WIF/GM Latina Acceleration Grant recipient, Michelle Malley Campos is an award-winning writer-director with 10 short films under her belt and over 10 years of experience in the film industry. A Puerto Rico native, she moved back to the island upon graduating and quickly established herself as a prominent young director while working in Production on dozens of films, TV series, commercials and music videos. She is a member of the Director’s Guild of America, having worked as an Assistant Director on such films and TV Series as Masterminds, Cocaine Cowboys, Mozart in the Jungle and Mag Dogs, among others. She has participated in several educational initiatives giving writing and directing workshops to high school kids. Her latest short film, “In Pieces”, enjoyed exposure at the 68th Cannes Film Festival and is currently traveling the festival circuit.
Although working towards directing features with two finished screenplays and two more in the writing process, Malley Campos revels in the short subject and enjoys creating rounded, poignant stories with a concise duration. She has naturally gravitated to directing commercials as she continues to write her screenplays and hopes to travel the world through the ever constant language of advertising.
