British Filmmaker Evey Swayland's Road To Success

A Story by starpower

The impressive resume' of Evey Swayland


Some people have all the luck, especially movie people. They get up at 10 in the morning and it is always sunny when they walk out the front door directly onto the tropical island beach they live on. And then they are served breakfast in their private cabana and go snorkeling and then it’s back to the cabana for a mid-morning nap after some fresh squeezed guava/mango juice. What a life those movie folks live and it was all handed to them without them having to lift a finger.


Well, that may be some people’s view of the movie industry and its participants but it just ain’t so in reality" for the most part, anyway. Some of those “movie people” like Evey Swayland, The transplanted British filmmaker have actually had to work extremely hard to not only get a foot in the door but to maintain a presence in the entertainment business and to climb up the proverbial ladder. If you could see her very full resumé you would swear that this woman has done almost every production job there is to do on a TV show or a movie.


On the hit film Rocketman she was the Crowd Assistant Director. That means that she was responsible for hiring and organizing the extras for the production and she had to make sure to work within budget and keep things on schedule. She was 3rd Assistant Director on the Netflix production of Jim Hanson: The Dark Crystal Age of Resistance. On Top Gear Evey was the researcher and then became personal assistant to the hosts of the popular TV show, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.


She continued to move up in the hierarchy of production positions from 2nd Assistant Director to assistant Producer to Producer. Evey produced, wrote and directed her own short film Belle in 2016. That wonderful film, by the way, won the Best Female Director for Evey at the prestigious Cardiff Film Festival in Wales, UK in 2017.


Nothing has been handed to Evey. She has worked hard and has gone through extensive filmmaking training at university and she has contributed to countless projects with some very talented people whom she respects greatly. She has traveled and worked all over the world including: Morocco, Jordan, Germany, Namibia, Italy, France, Barcelona, Mozambique, Johannesburg, Finland, Dubai, Scotland, Wales, Amsterdam, Madrid, La, Austria and currently resides and works in Los Angeles, California.
