In 2015, principal photography began on her third feature film, Where is Kyra?, directed by her longtime collaborator, Andrew Dosunmu starring Michelle Pfeiffer and Kiefer Sutherland. The film will premiere at Sundance 2017.
One of the first short films to garner acclaim was Little Minx’s Exquisite Corpse series. Malik Sayeed wrote & directed She Walked Calmly Disappearing into the Darkness, which was the first short to ever open the Sundance Film Festival. The Exquisite Corpse series went on to screen at top film festivals including Tribeca, Seattle and LA Film Fest.
Directing duo Hervé & Francois began their fruitful collaboration on the short Logorama with Little Minx on the helm. Rhea teamed Hervé & Francois with writer Gregory Pruss, long time collaborator of David Fincher’s, and Fincher was also the voice of the Pringles hot and spicy in the film. Logorama garnered awards at the Cannes Film Festival, an Oscar for Best Animated Short, and two César Awards among others.
Another longer format project was for the Ghost Recon Alpha campaign, which boasted a line-up of top Hollywood talent. Directed by Herve & Francois, the script was written by Tim Sexton, Academy Award nominee for Children of Men, and Gregory Pruss. The film was shot by Captain America cinematographer Trent Opaloch, and edited by Pietro Scalia, two-time Academy Award winner for Black Hawk Down and JFK. The client Ubisoft was so impressed by Hervé and Francois work that they brought them on as creative directors to the game itself.
In 2013, Little Minx produced Rodrigo Prieto’s directorial debut, Likeness, starring Elle Fanning. By applying his Academy Award-nominated cinematography skills to a deeply personal narrative, Prieto created a haunting piece that garnered praise across the industry.
