Shining bright in the entertainment world, Myia Elliott makes a notable mark. Reaching new heights and continually evolving, Elliott stands as a Renaissance Woman, contributing to the entertainment industry through her roles as a producer, creative artist, and actor. With her unparalleled vision and unwavering dedication, she captivates audiences and inspires fellow artists alike. Her multifaceted talents encompass a spectrum of artistic expression, from captivating performances on screen to innovative projects behind the scenes.

Elliott’s journey began on the stage, where she honed her acting craft. She graduated from The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in New York. Her acting talents were then focused on film and TV productions like the  Primetime Emmy-winning “The Tudors” and other TV shows and films where she worked alongside Hollywood’s A-list, including Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Henry Cavill, Colin Farrell,  and Aaron Taylor Johnson.  

Venturing beyond acting, Elliott decided to spend some time on the other side of the camera, delving into the multifaceted filmmaking craft. Her insatiable curiosity and mentorship from Academy Award-winning industry veterans propelled her into a new sphere of storytelling, igniting a passion for producing and directing that she hadn’t fully explored before.

Elliott’s journey into film and television production signifies a significant turning point in her career. Founding her production company, Irish F-ing Attitude Studios®, reflects Elliott’s fearless attitude towards filmmaking. With a unique blend of warmth and charm, she embodies the essence of a Renaissance Woman, proudly rooted in her Irish heritage. Elliott passionately advocates for the importance of skill versatility, especially in the dynamic landscape of New Hollywood. Through her studio, she orchestrates both in-house productions and collaborations, seamlessly weaving narratives that challenge conventional storytelling norms.

One notable project ‘Belfast Thunder,” involves a 13-time Emmy-winning team whose innovations reshaped broadcast TV and cinema. Elliott’s passion lies in revealing the untold stories behind renowned achievements, highlighting the importance of going against the system.  

The multitalented producers’ creative spectrum extends to virtual production and harnessing AI in the intriguing project, “The Lens Between Us.” Drawing inspiration from her time at the Gnomon School of Visual Effects, Elliott envisions a project that stylistically combines Spielberg and Tarantino. Elliott aims to push creative technical boundaries with a stellar ensemble cast, including talents from Oscar-winning films and HBO’s “Perry  Mason.”  

Her commitment to supporting emerging voices in the industry is further illustrated in  projects like “A Studio Night” from award-winning director James Ken Blackmon, starring  Ruby Modine from “Shameless” and Maestro Harrell from “The Wire” and “Euphoria.” Another of Elliott’s films, “The Wren,” sheds light on an often overlooked historical female-driven narrative. Elliott is adamant about the need for diversity in storytelling, advocating for underrepresented voices in front of and behind the camera.  

Elliott acknowledges the challenges in the film industry, especially for independent producers. She remarks honestly that the streaming model’s impact on traditional financing poses serious financial challenges. Still, Elliott sees emerging technology as an opportunity for independent filmmakers to explore new avenues of revenue and content delivery to a wider audience. Amid challenges, Elliott remains optimistic about the future of independent filmmaking. She believes the convergence of new technologies and AI will empower storytellers to compete with larger studios, fostering a new era of cinematic entrepreneurs in Hollywood, California, and beyond.  

Myia Elliott’s journey reflects the spirit of a Renaissance Woman, breaking boundaries, championing diverse narratives, and shaping the future of Hollywood with a distinct perspective with Irish F-ing Attitude Studios®. As she navigates the unique terrain of the entertainment industry, Elliott’s story remains an inspiring testament to the possibilities that unfold when hard work, passion, talent, and vision combine.
