Megan Seely is an award-winning writer/director/actress, who just completed her MFA in Film Production at USC. Through the numerous original works she has created for both the screen and stage, she has honed her ability to use dark comedy to reveal unspoken everyday truths. 

Her most recent short, My Loyal Audience, which she wrote, directed and starred in, won the favorite film of the 2017 Catalina Film Festival and best Emerging Filmmaker at the 2018 Sunscreen Film Festival, and has played across the nation, recently at the Oscar-qualifying 2018 Florida Film Festival, Newport Beach Film Festival, and Santa Fe Independent Film Festival.

She has worked closely with Borderline Films (Sean Durkin, Antonio Campos, Josh Mond), Indian Paintbrush (Wes Anderson's company), and Elysium Bandini (James Franco). While at USC, she co-wrote The Mad Whale, a feature starring Camilla Belle, Summer Phoenix, Dominic Rains, and James Franco.

As an actress, she recently played in Aly Migliori’s Twist opposite Helena Howard (Madeline’s Madeline), as well as the first ever Filipino-American musical feature Nanay Ko, and Harmony Korine’s newest film.

She is currently in pre-production for her first feature.
