The Directors Bureau

Managing Director & Executive Producer


Work →

Lisa Margulis began her career in New York, loading film cameras on music video shoots in the 90’s, eventually moving into production due to the weight of film magazines. She started a long string of work for RSA, production managing massive Marlboro shoots for Tony Scott who smoked cigars and climbed mountains on down days. She went on to produce for Roman Coppola and Mike Mills at The Directors Bureau, and began executive producing for TDB and HKM, managing both companies for 4 years. She moved on to executive producing posts at Anonymous Content, MJZ and Epoch Films, returning to The Directors Bureau in 2012 as Managing Director and EP. She lives in Silver Lake, California, with landscape designer Matt Brown and their 10 and 7 year old girls, who are the gnarliest directors she’s ever had the pleasure of working with.
