At age five, Dutch born Eva Midgley wanted to be a truck driver. Or a ballerina. The tutu won. Eva trained as a professional dancer in the UK, followed by a degree in Communications. She worked for DDB Needham, then became fashion editor of AD magazine. Five years later, Eva moved to London and started to write and direct movies. Her first 10 minute film, “Honey and Bunny, ” incorporated her love of frocks, dance and playfulness. Her collaborations with Coco de Mer, for whom she wrote and directed 8 short films won numerous awards and were screened at film festivals worldwide. Since then, she has directed commercials and short films for Mac Cosmetics, Essie, L’Oreal, Senseo, Wella. Her short film “Peep Show” was part of the official selection at LA Shorts Fest and Hollyshorts 2010 and is still doing the rounds on the festival circuit. Eva’s strong visual style is sumptuous, sensuous and feminine. An experiment with the hi-speed Phantom camera unleashed a lasting fascination with capturing ultra macro, high speed magic. The things that are always there but never perceived by the eye. Eva currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. She does not have a trucking license yet. She is writing a feature film.
