At age five, Dutch born Eva Midgley wanted to be a truck driver. Or a ballerina. The tutu won. After pirouetting her way through ballet school, she malfunctioned somewhere between vertebrae T1 and C4 and went back to uni to study something serious.
Serious degree in hand, she worked for DDB Needham in Indonesia, then became fashion editor of AD magazine in the Netherlands before moving to London, to start writing and directing.
Her first 10 minute, 35mm film, Honey and Bunny, incorporated her love of frocks, dance and cavorting in the nude. Her collaborations with high end naughty brand Coco de Mer, for whom she wrote and directed 8 short films won lots of awards and were screened at film festivals worldwide. Her narrative short film Peep Show was part of the official selection at LA Shorts Fest and Hollyshorts. Her feature screenplay, The Magic of Valerie B won finalist award at the Atlanta Festival.
Eva currently lives in Brooklyn, NY, with her husband and three boys. She directs commercials for brands like Mac Cosmetics, L'Oréal, Essie, Senseo, Wella, Dove, and Tresemmé. In between shooting, she writes screenplays.
