EVA SAUNDERS is an award-winning visual storyteller and passionate entertainment professional from Germany, who relocated to the United States to improve her storytelling skills at the AFI Conservatory and UCLA Extension.
Over the last ten years, she has honed her storytelling skills in a professional environment as a short form content creator, for example at Buzzfeed’s food video branch “Tasty”. A poster child millennial, she also loves to feed her avocado- and attention-deprived soul by writing and directing stories about independent women, like her award winning short films MOONLIT NIGHT and MY LAST RESPECTS.
Eva focuses on telling honest stories that inspire people to think twice about their privileged, every-day lives. But she also has a humorous side that she expresses in resourceful and comedic cat shorts that she produces in the comfort of her home and for which she was recently recognized by the City of Los Angeles and New Filmmakers LA. Eva is currently developing several TV pilots and features for her long-form debut and – to please her cat Bobby – adapted his award-winning short film into an ongoing web series.
