Maren Victoria Thingnæs
MA Film Directing
Edinburgh College of Art
Since graduating in 2017 Victoria has worked as an editor on one of Norway's biggest reality TV shows called Farmen. From there she moved to a smaller production company G Stories working as a writer and director, mostly on web content.
In the spring of 2018 she will direct a drama about eating disorders, called Light as a cloud. This is a co-production with her mother who has written the script. She is also in the planning phase for a documentary about the Montmarte Jazzhouse in Copenhagen, Denmark.
"My experience at Screen Academy Scotland/ECA was beyond all my expectations. I was encouraged to focus on finding my own voice as a filmmaker and really dig deep into my project making a short documentary. My tutors always pushed me in the right direction and made me work harder than I had ever done before. I not only developed myself as a filmmaker, but also as a person. After graduating from Screen Academy ECA, I am still eager to learn, to discover new forms of filmmaking and to see the world from a wider perspective."
