|Co-Director/Producer of A WILL FOR THE WOODS.|
Amy Browne grew up in Australia and moved to New York to study theater at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts. After graduation, she completed her Bachelor’s degree at The New School University. There, she directed three short films and initiated her first feature film, A Will for the Woods. When her sister Sophie first introduced her to the concept of green burial, which connects the profundity and beauty of nature with the cycle of death and life, Amy was inspired to further explore the idea through film. What started out as a short student project has grown into a life-changing four year journey. Amy also works with independent film producer Steve Holmgren in Brooklyn, NY. Her film credits include Assistant Producer on Marie Losier's avant-garde documentary The Ballad of Genesis and Lady Jaye (Tribeca 2011), Associate Producer for cult favorite Cory McAbee’s Crazy & Thief (Los Angeles Film Festival 2012), and Unit Production Manager and Associate Producer on critically-acclaimed director Matthew Porterfield’s latest, I Used to be Darker (2013 Sundance Film Festival).
