Olivia Butler is a recent graduate of James Madison University, where she received her BA in both Theatre and Digital Video & Cinema. Her goal is to work in film production, either in cinematography or as a director. She finds working with actors and being on set thrilling. Her extensive background in many areas of theatre, particularly performance, informs her work as an aspiring director. Olivia believes it is crucial as a woman to be a leader in the film industry, especially because we don't see enough women film directors or cinematographers.


This past summer, Olivia participated in an LA study program where she took classes and found two development internships. Her experience in pre-production taught her how to analyze the producibility of scripts, conduct research, and curate sales materials. She craves opportunities in which she can put her skills to the test, learn from her mistakes, and grow as an artist. Storytelling is her passion, and she hopes to one day tell stories on the screen that matter.
