Writer, director, producer and actor Megan Park’s uniquely authentic voice as a filmmaker made her the perfect person to tackle what would become her debut feature, The Fallout, which she wrote and directed, starring Jenna Ortega, Maddie Zeigler and Julie Bowen. The film premiered at the 2021 SXSW Film Festival and will be streaming on HBO Max in 2022.
Park’s career as a filmmaker began with her 2017 short film, Lucy In My Eyes, which premiered at the 2017 Austin Film Festival and won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Narrative Short. Upcoming, Park is in development on the New Line Cinema feature No Baggage with Shailene Woodley attached to star and Adam Shankman’s Offspring Entertainment producing, in which a couple embark on an international adventure on the spur of the moment after meeting through an online dating site. Park is also in development on a number of film and television projects soon to be announced.
She has also written and directed campaigns and high profile music videos for some of today's biggest artists such as Billie Eilish, Gucci Mane, Alina Baraz and Blackbear, which have grossed upwards of 500 million views, including short film Goodnight for Janelle Monae’s “Beautiful Future” campaign. Park’s short films Listen To Me and Medically Speaking both won a Bronze Lion at the Cannes Film Festival in the Not-for-profit/Charity categories for nonprofit organization IGNITE’s latest campaign #WriteTheRules.
Park’s projects as a writer/director come after an illustrious, award-winning career in front of the camera, which gave her the tools to work successfully with her actors hands on, accommodating their various acting styles. She was last seen in the film Dog Days, starring Eva Longoria and Nina Dobrev, and can be seen in series “Moody Christmas,” “Young Sheldon,” “Imposters,” “9JKL,” “Jane The Virgin,” “The Neighbors,” “Happy Endings,” “Entourage,” and for seven seasons on the ABC Family series “The Secret Life Of An American Teenager.”
