SHOOT ONLINE: Director Audrey Ellis Fox Joins Los York Films

LOS ANGELES — Los York Films, the film discipline of creative studio Los York, has signed Audrey Ellis Fox to its directorial roster, marking her first official representation for commercial work. Ellis Fox is an empathetic and highly skillful director of actors, having once been on the other side of the camera, and her extensive background in theater and visual arts informs her unique immersive vision, which transports viewers to other realms.

A former line-producer, Ellis Fox has written, directed and produced for clients such as Amazon, Epic Records, Sony, Vogue/Conde Nast, Lululemon, The CW, Reddit, Real Madrid, Bose, Columbia Records, Snap, Mike’s Hard Lemonade, Republic Records, Skullcandy, Warner Records, Atlantic Records, and many more.  She is an experienced music video director, nominated for an MTV VMA for her directing work for Avril Lavigne, Travis Barker, and Blackbear in 2022.

Ellis Fox is currently in development for her debut feature. Her shorts Retreat and Patricia Drive played at Oscar-qualifying festivals around the country including Hollyshorts, LA Shorts, Urbanworld (HBO), Rhode Island International Film Festival, Maryland Film Festival, and SLIFF.  Her writing accomplishments include features Scam (Sundance Development Track second round), Real Talk (Page International Screenwriting Awards Semi-Finalist) and Holy Dumpling! (Sundance YouTube New Voices Lab second round).

“Audrey’s versatility as an artist, musician, performer and director is beyond impressive,” said Seth Epstein, Los York Founder/ECD. “She brings a new emerging voice, attitude, energy and perspective to Los York. She has an essential quality and spirit, I would call it a cine qua non–pun intended–that separates her from many other filmmakers of her generation. Her knowledge of cinema is encyclopedic and passionate. Just ask her about her favorite classic noir films. And she translates that knowledge and experience into her own unique vision and style of storytelling.”

Ellis Fox shared, “As a longtime admirer of Los York’s interdisciplinary and elevated approach to storytelling, I am thrilled to join forces. As a director, I strive to create bold films that are both highly stylized and narratively compelling; my passion lies in crafting surreal and thought-provoking works that playfully challenge our senses.  I am excited to have found an ideal collaborator in Los York, who shares my ethos for pushing creative boundaries and driving innovation.”

A third generation Angeleno, Ellis Fox received her Bachelor of Arts in modern culture and media from Brown University (interdisciplinary cinematic studies). She also studied at Rhode Island School of Design, University of California, Los Angeles and the Film and TV School of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague, Czech Republic.
