Laura Naylor (Writer/Director/Producer) fell for images, moving and not-so-mobile, while studying art at Columbia. Her directorial debut, Duck Beach -- a feature documentary about Mormon singles trying to tie-the knot -- premiered at the Seattle International Film Festival and aired on BBC 3 in the UK. Her second feature, The Fix, premiered at AFI Docs, won the jury prize for Best Documentary at the Soho International Film Festival, and was hailed a “poignant portrait of life in recovery” by The Hollywood Reporter. After animating a stop-motion sequence for one of her docs, she said YES PLEASE to creating tiny worlds. Her stop-motion adaptation of Melville's Bartleby received an Opportunity Grant from New York Foundation for the Arts and premiered at the 2017 Aspen Shortsfest.,,
