My journey began as a commercial director. I was fortunate enough to be taken under the wing of some of Los Angeles’s most prestigious commercial production companies, like Traktor and Park Pictures, while simultaneously working on my own commercial reel. After receiving the Young Directors Award in Cannes, I was signed to And What Productions in Venice, California, and Idealcorp in Paris. As I further immersed myself in the industry and continued to produce content, I found my artistic voice. I’m always attracted to character-driven stories, whether they are comedies or dramas.
Eventually, I embarked on my next chapter; directing narrative films. And what a wonderful chapter it has been! Directing has given me the opportunity to work with incredibly talented and dedicated people, who are also hungry to make their mark.
I’ve explored the inner workings of the mind of a woman with photographic memory with my short "Forever Mind," observed a breakup from a bathroom mirror told in musical comedy format in "This is Goodbye," and rooted for a delusional yet lovable actress in my first feature film "My Name Is Vivienne." Currently I’m finishing a short film, "An Act of Love," that is set in the circus – a world that deeply fascinates me. It tells the story of a young performer who enters a relationship with a seasoned artist, and begs the question: how much of yourself will you give up for your partner?
I invite you to take a look around and check out my work!
Welcome! I’m Marjorie. Originally from Brazil, I moved to Los Angeles in 2005 to attend Art Center College of Design in Pasadena.
