Directing Demo Reel (Unscripted)

Directing Demo Reel (Comedy)

I’ve had the pleasure of working with Moreen on several network-funded tapes. She does it all – from prepping the shoot creatively, making sure a top notch crew is hired, field producing, directing, doing amazing interviews, to running post — even editing! Moreen is an amazing creative executive. She thinks outside the box and has a passion that’s infectious.

MOREEN DEMI LITTRELL

Moreen is a multi-hyphenated creative with experience that spans entertainment, fashion and comedy.

As a “one-stop-shop” of writing, directing, producing, shooting and editing, Moreen works with top TV production companies including CBS TV Studios and World of Wonder, developing unscripted shows and documentaries for virtually all networks, spanning all genres. Highlights include the bladesmith-competition format, "Forged in Fire" (History Channel), two documentaries for PBS, and network pilots.  In 2016, she launched ISIZZLES to focus primarily on unscripted TV. Prior to that, Moreen was director of development for Outpost Entertainment (an ITV company, which is the largest independent TV production company in the USA). There, her ideas generated major network development deals with CNBC and Freeform among others. 

Moreen is also an award-winning filmmaker. Her directing credits include a multi-cam network TV pilot for Freeform (featuring Emmy and Latin Grammy winning talent), and Meet the Zillas, an absurdist short film that won "Best Film Audience Award" at the Los Angeles Underground Film Festival.  Shot in 4 days, it featured 27 principals and 40 extras including Jessica Pohly ("Pepper" from Pee Wee Herman's Big Holiday), Nancy Daly ("Suburbicon,"), Emmy-nominee Blake Berris, and Brandon Moynihan (aka “Captain Obvious"). She has also directed many commercials for Arbonne, Inc..

Moreen is also a three-time published author, specifically: author of LOST IN MANHATTAN, a novel that was previously in development at Oxygen Media, and co-author of two comedy monologue books (Women's Comedic Monologues That Are Actually Funny, and Teen Girls' Comedic Monologues That Are Actually Funny). Comedy is a large part of Moreen’s repertoire; two months after her stand-up debut, she was offered a contract by New Wave Entertainment (Dane Cook’s management company) for her debut comedy album. See www.moreenlittrell.com for comedy.

Her background consists of fashion as well. She was a menswear designer at Liz Claiborne, Inc. where she was named a top ten finalist in a company-wide design competition. Judges included Angela Ahrendts, the former CEO of Burberry. In 2012, Moreen created FASHION ALERT, a B2B e-zine (distribution 200K+) for MAGIC (North America's largest fashion trade show), which recorded the highest open rates in company history. As its editor-in-chief, she reported to Tom Florio, the former publisher of Vogue.

Moreen graduated from USC with a B.A. in Creative Writing and Cinematic Arts. Early in her career, she gained considerable industry experience working at William Morris Agency (now WME) where she assisted the worldwide head of TV literary, and at ICM where she assisted the head of theatrical talent. She was also the 52nd person hired at Oxygen Media, leaving her fashion career to marry two passions: crafting entertaining content and empowering females.

Working with Moreen is a breath of fresh air. A true creative, her genuine approach to storytelling exudes confidence and optimism that she instills in everyone around her. She is the first person I ask for guidance and thoughtful input. Her creative voice and innate ability to inspire those she works with makes her invaluable in today’s media.

“I worked with Moreen at William Morris and she was brilliant. I reconnected with her recently and she is still sharp, funny and energetic. Hire her.
— John Ferriter, CEO and Chair of The Alternative
Moreen is an absolute asset for any creative project. She is one of the most out-of-the-box creative thinkers I have ever worked with, ever. She has so much drive and determination- everyone around her is inspired by her spunk! At her core, Moreen is an ideas person. They literally burst from her body! She is a human spark! There is no doubt that she will make things happen and in a grand way! Personally, I can’t wait for our next project.
