Maggy Torres-Rodriguez grew up in the sunlit radiance of Miami, Florida, where she spent all her time locked up in her room, AWAY from the sun, coming up with terrifying vampire stories. Her Afro-Cuban and German family provided a very convoluted upbringing, so her interests in dark magic, dirty romance, and existential desperation are no surprise.  Let’s say, if Guillermo Del Toro was a five foot girl scared of his own movies, he’d basically be Maggy.

 

Maggy studied Film Production at the University of Miami and was a one-­man circus act for most of her short films (writing, directing, shooting, editing). In 2013, she directed a music video that premiered at The Miami International Film Festival, and DP’d a short film that opened at the Cannes Film Festival’s Short Film Corner.  All of that fanciness made her think “oh, she may not be so terrible at this after all.”

 

She then went on to receive her MFA in Screenwriting at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts in 2016.

 

Maggy has worked as a writer for the Department of Defense on creative projects funded by the U.S. Army.  She was hired as science fiction writer because they needed creative people to ‘engineer ideas for engineers to engineer.’ Essentially, it involved brainstorming ideas regarding advancements in weapons, medicine, and technology and relaying them over to the army for execution. It sounds like a cheesy movie plot, but it was an actual job.   

 

Now she works as a freelance producer at HBO, finally.
