Amelia Conway

Age-defying director

Amelia Conway is a film maker of short films, music videos and commercials. She is also fourteen years old, and can’t figure out why her age is such a big deal. Amelia made her debut in the entertainment industry when she co-hosted a radio show on the internet station “Little Radio” at seven years old. Since her radio days, she has gone on to make several short films and music videos. She has worked with many well-known brands — including Toms Shoes, Beats Music and American Girl Doll — and recently directed campaigns for Target and NASCAR.

Amelia has a finely-honed taste for music and old films that has served her not only in her filmmaking, but also in her musical endeavors. She has been a member of Ryan Gosling’s band “Dead Man’s Bones” in the children’s choir, and traveled on the “Railroad Revival Tour” with Mumford and Sons.

For Amelia it’s not about being known as a young director, or even a girl director for that matter. It’s about being a creative director, one aimed at inspiring people of every age and gender to do what they love and pursue their passions no matter the obstacles.
