Maura A. fallon
I am a filmmaking artist captivated by relating; how we relate to others, to ourselves, and to what we choose to believe in. The primary focus of my work is investigating the psyches of lonely women, and how they choose to navigate personal and external expectations. My work draws heavily from art history and religion, both symbolically and thematically, as I believe the two worlds encompass the emotional and intangible as well as the physical, and can, therefore, be building blocks for deeply effective filmmaking. In everything I do, I create with intention and intuition, infusing magic into the mundane.
I graduated from The George Washington University with a bachelor's degree in journalism & mass communications and a minor in film studies. I followed my love of film to the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, where I studied abroad for four months.
I have told stories for the CARE Foundation in Bangladesh, Background Films in Prague, and collaborated with the Brooklyn-based POV on PBS, the longest-running documentary series on TV. In February of 2020, I also had the pleasure of writing, directing, editing, and starring in my first short, In the Land of Blood and Honey, produced at the Chateau Orquevaux Artist Residency in Orquevaux, France.
Currently, I work as a freelancer, both remote and in Los Angeles, specializing in video editing, writing, and creative production.
