Fox

An author, screenwriter and director, Jessica Fox’s love of stories and images began at the age of 5 when reality betrayed her and she realised dressing in a Superman costume did not in fact grant you super powers.  Thus a life of creating stories, world building and play was born. Fox attended FAMU, the National Film School in Prague for screenwriting/directing and graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Franklin & Marshall College with a B.A. in Folklore/Mythology and Astronomy. Founding Mythic Image Studios and Picto Productions, Fox has directed award-winning shorts, music videos, commercials, documentaries and theater, including “Shakespeare: The Puppet Show” at the Victoria Albert Museum, one of the 10 children shows of 2014 in London. Inspired by the connection between stories and scientific exploration, Fox was a storyteller for NASA, published articles in The Huffington Post, Guardian, etc. and her book, Three Things You Need to Know About Rockets (Short Books) was Waterstone’s Book of the Month. Recently, Fox attended the Edinburgh International Film Festival’s Emerging Talent Program, wrote Never After, a fairy tale series featuring Gillian Anderson and is developing her next book The Theerys. Fox continues to feed her inner nerd by story consulting for science and tech organisations.
