Elizabeth Archer

Los Angeles, California, United States

Elizabeth grew up in a small town in Northern California and from an early age wanted to become an actress but when she was cast as Nun#4 in the Sound of Music she realized she should probably scrap that whole musical theater idea so she moved to Los Angeles to study film and discovered she is allergic to peanuts and accidentally stabbed her leg on a fence. Based in Los Angeles, Elizabeth is the director, writer and producer of award-winning short films, commercials and music videos. During her time in Los Angeles, she has worked for companies such as Hello Sunshine, 20th Century Fox and Netflix. In 2019, Elizabeth qualified as a finalist for SeriesFest x Shondaland's Women in Directing Mentorship. For the last 2.5 years, Elizabeth worked as a treatment designer at PRETTYBIRD, a Grammy-award production company in Culver City. She is currently a member of Free The Work and has joined Hooked as a freelance writer for their Fiction Program. Her latest work can be found in Uber’s “Thank You For Not Riding” Coronavirus Ad and Facebook Groups “Rainbow Hunt.” Most recently, Elizabeth was been selected as a top twenty finalist in the Black List x Writers Guild Initiative’s Michael Collyer Memorial Fellowship in Screenwriting Contest for her feature film script in development. Elizabeth creates stories rooted in magical realism and has a funny bone for offbeat, comedic filmmaking. When she isn’t writing her bio in third person, she enjoys listening to true crime podcasts, Irish-exiting birthday parties and visiting urgent care for her seasonal allergies.
