ODELAY FILMS WELCOME AUDREY ELLIS FOX.
29 January 2023

2023 is the Year of the Fox at Odelay Films, as director Audrey Ellis Fox joins their UK roster. Managing director Prudence Beecroft's global talent search brought her to Los Angeles, where she found a rising talent with many strings to her bow.

When not sat in the director's chair, Fox is a writer, producer, musician, and all-round cultural magpie. This ensures inspiration is never too far away, with Fox keen to absorb as much as possible before tackling a new script. No wonder Beecroft is pleased to have the Angeleno on board.


"Audrey draws upon cultural influences in fashion and design creating particularly fresh relevant work," Beecroft says. "From music videos to her commercial work, it all oozes stunning production design, rich colours, sublime cinematography, creative transitions, and a strong sense of pace and rhythm."


I am excited to join Odelay's talented roster and begin my UK journey!

 ”

A hyped Beecroft adds: "Audrey is not only fantastically talented, but also humble, a grafter, and easy to talk to. I know our clients in the UK will love collaborating with her, and we're forward to getting her over for her first UK production soon."


Fox, who plants herself in "the nexus of narrative, fashion, music, and pop culture", says: "I am thrilled to have found an incredible partner in Odelay, a company that not only shares my creative taste but also my environmental values for sustainable filmmaking. I am excited to join their talented roster and begin my UK journey!"
