Audrey McPherson and Hallie McPherson are a sister filmmaking team who grew up in a family of filmmakers. Their own partnership benefits not only from a shared sororal language and political/artistic sensibility, but also from their complementary strengths. First and foremost a writing team, they are experienced filmmakers who are eager to both collaborate as well as direct their own work. They are interested in stories about women, family, magic, mythology, and are drawn to the darkest corners of comedy. Their writing motto is "make the audience laugh lest they weep."
Hallie writes full-fledged f*cked-up characters and never met a pun she didn’t like. Behind her wicked and sometimes unseemly dialogue you will find that Hallie is, at heart, a structuralist whose background in theatre has provided the scaffolding necessary to build a compelling and wholly-realized story. She currently lives with her sister and writing partner in Los Angeles, but plans to die in Brooklyn.

Hallie has been writing stories since before she could properly hold a pencil. A devoted theatre nerd, Hallie began writing plays in high school. She graduated from Barnard College with a minor in playwriting before going on to get her MFA in Dramatic Writing at Carnegie Mellon University. Her latest play "C*NTLOAF: Or The C-Word Play," was a finalist for the NAPAT award through the Kennedy Center, as well as earning her the Mary Marlin Fischer Award at CMU.
Audrey has a strong sense of structure and a knack for visual storytelling. Her time spent behind the camera has reinforced the idea that the words on the page are only as good as the images they conjure. Her partnership with her sister has only made her a better storyteller. Together, they are a formidable team. Please click here to see her creative resume.
After studying philosophy at Williams College and UCLA, Audrey hiked the Appalachian Trail, spent months living in a van in New Zealand, worked as a backcountry ranger in Northern Vermont and as a dive master in Thailand and Indonesia. Her travels taught her that a good story is universal currency: appreciated and accepted everywhere. She moved to LA and began taking cinematography and acting classes, writing screenplays, and making short films. Her filmmaking partnership with her sister began in 2019 when they wrote their first script together.
