Andrea began her career as an actress after moving to Los Angeles to attend The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. Shortly after enrolling in the Academy, she was cast opposite Amy Smart and Sean Hayes in John Updike’s A & P.
While acting and modeling (for print, film/tv, commercials, & live modeling for animators @ Disney), she began directing, producing & writing experimental films. This led to her be hired to direct & produce music videos for internationally acclaimed pop stars. Andrea then expanded into features, as well as producing and casting multiple national commercial campaigns.
Andrea recently produced The Gesture and The Word, starring James Michael Tyler (Friends), Paul Dooley (16 Candles), and Nicole LaLiberté (Twin Peaks, Dexter, Now Apocalypse, & Monsterland). The Gesture and The Word has been accepted into more than 50 film festivals and has won over 30 awards. Andrea also produced & created We Stand Together, a #metoo PSA, that has gone on to win numerous awards and is making a big impact in the #metoo movement.
In addition to The Gesture and The Word & We Stand Together, Andrea also created Do Better, a social & political justice project for #blacklivesmatter, starring Johnathan Fernandez & Keesha Sharp.
Some of her other producing credits include Call of the River, which premiered at the Red Cat Disney Hall Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles; Do You Believe In Pancakes; FIRST TRIP for the web series FIRSTS; Isle of Dogs, starring Barbara Nedeljakova (Hostel), Andrew Howard (Limitless, Transformers), and Edward Hogg (Anonymous); Riding ’79, starring Kim Rhodes (Supernatural, Criminal Minds), and Lorenzo James Henrie (Fear The Walking Dead); Lillian, starring Johnathan Fernandez (Lethal Weapon, Gossip Girl); and The Truth About You, (also directed by Fellers) starring Aimee-Lynn Chadwick (Tinsel’s Town, The Closer), and Jon Robert Hall (Transformers: The Last Knight).
The Truth About You marked her third feature film as a producer and her feature directorial debut. Entirely shot in Los Angeles, The Truth About You takes place on New Year’s Eve, when six best friends make a pact to tell each other the one thing they’ve always wanted to… with disastrous results. The Truth About You is being likened to a contemporary pop culture Breakfast Club.
Andrea produced all of the artwork for the feature and the piece she created specifically for the film (also titled The Truth About You) was part of her solo art exhibition, “Hollywood Love Letters,” at the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood, CA. “Hollywood Love Letters” featured abstract interpretations of films that have inspired and influenced Andrea. The exhibition included earlier works and was a well-rounded representation of who Andrea is as an artist.
Andrea is currently working on another animation project, Rejection Is Protection.
In addition to filmmaking, Andrea’s art exhibits and sells worldwide and has been showcased along-side Andy Warhol and Shepard Fairey, among others. Her paintings have been featured in a myriad of galleries and institutions across the globe, including: “POP Austin,” which brings together works by several of the most renowned contemporary artists from around the world; “Beats for Boobs” Breast Cancer Art exhibit and fundraiser both in San Francisco and Los Angeles; and the “Be A Saint” Valentines Day Art Auction and Gala at The Sylvia White Gallery in Ventura, California. Her art was also selected by Cris McCall, curator and founder of fresh stART, for an exciting one-night art exhibit to benefit therapeutic art programs for at-risk youth. Honorary Chairpersons were Felicity Huffman & William H. Macy.
