Morgan Gullett directing "Easy For Me" 2021

Directing, "Easy For Me" (2021)

Morgan started out in front of the camera, but after living in Los Angeles during pilot season, she realized she was fascinated with what was happening behind the camera. In between takes on set, instead of hanging out with the other actors, she’d sit with the Director, DP and PAs to watch, learn and ask what they were doing, and why.

 

In 2016, at 11 years old, she created her first short film, “Don't Forget Us” which was a documentary-style short about the children’s reactions to the adults around them during the 2016 Presidential Election between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. She created the concept, co-wrote, cast, and starred in this short film which earned her press attention as well as film festival awards in 2017.  

 

This motivated her to create more.  She approached crew she'd previously with to ask them to work with her again on her next several projects which included a dramatic short, “Switch” (2018) and music video “Smoke Signals” for Billboard featured artist Heather Mae in 2019.  These projects gained attention, press, more film festival awards, and they created the momentum to jump into the next phase of film production.  ALL of this, before her 15th birthday ! 

 

After COVID slowed down film production, she used that time to write and create what would come next.   In 2020, Morgan discovered two young female artists on Instagram.  She selected two of their songs, had them professionally produced, and created the concepts for their music videos. She cast and directed, Lauren Gottshall’s “Easy For Me” in September 2021 in Texas (this was her Directorial debut), and Sydnie Stephens’ "Tragedy Strikes” films in California in December 2021.  The attention Morgan has gained led to her nomination for two entrepreneur awards, both of which she won and which helped fund the music videos along with fundraising. Morgan recently completed a short film screenplay, “Behind Her Back” which films in Spring 2022, and she secured the IP for an extraordinary and gut-wrenching true story- she is currently in producer development talks about turning it into a feature film.  

 

All of this while attending high school!  Morgan plays tennis for her school, loves hanging out with her friends, is an honor-roll student, enjoys traveling, and being with her family.  After high school graduation in 2024 …. college / film school.
