Filmmaker Screen Writer Movement Director

Filmmaker Screen Writer Movement Director

A creative polymath: Litza has produced work on stage, screen, mountains and in galleries. In her previous life as a film-movement specialist, she crafted movement and action for many iconic, award-winning films and shows. And her writing has won or been shortlisted in multiple competitions.

Themes: Litza creates absurd, whimsical worlds populated by fallen angels, cowgirls, lonely aliens, talking birds, witches and water-sucking monsters. Her work is embodied, visceral and set in visually evocative spaces, from desolate landscapes and crumbling rooms, to musical alternate realities, sinking ships and flying cities. In these worlds, her characters transform and move, they travel through wormholes, they fly and they fall, they drown in oceans and they disintegrate into dust. Litza is a dual national and often explores liminal spaces, thresholds and metaphorical journeys in her work.

Screenwriter: Litza specializes in high concept Horror, grounded Sci-Fi and Fantasy (animation & musical). Her work features strong female characters and ranges from light fantasy/adventure with universally resonant themes, to darker horror/sci-fi with sociopolitical and environmental themes. Litza believes that a good story shows us the world as it is, as well as how it could be and loves building interesting worlds and asking challenging questions.
