Condra Magee is an award-winning Director with a diverse background in the film and television industry. Having written creative content since she was a child, she was lured into an interest in writing for the screen and filmmaking during freshman orientation at her alma mater Florida A&M University after watching a film produced by two recent graduates while they were students on campus ("Chocolate City," Will Packer and Rob Hardy). She thought to herself, "I'm going to write and direct a movie while I'm here too!"
And while she wrote, directed and produced various episodic and commercial projects as a student, her official start came as an alumnae with an award-winning short film that was selected for television distribution. She then spent time in almost every area of the industry, learning and honing her craft of writing, directing and producing both through her production company Condraversy Films but more often being highly sought out to collaborate with other production companies to produce film, television, Internet and commercial content.
Her knack for timing that makes each project feel like nothing short of rhythmic choreography and her ability to intuitively achieve emotive performances has led her to collaborate with major brands like Mars Wrigley’s, Aveeno, Jack Daniels, Delta, The Home Depot and more.
She recently teamed up with Lebron James and Maverick Carter's SpringHill Company, coming aboard as Director of "The Shop," the Emmy Award winning talk show created by Paul Rivera on their Uninterrupted platform.
The advantage of her innate storytelling sensibility with each film – no matter its length, genre, or distribution platform – is what sets Condra apart from others. It is this versatility that has allowed Condra to achieve the same visceral response from her Commercial content as she does with the perhaps more nuanced Docu-style short films along with her long form projects.
“For me, everything starts with the story, whether I’m translating the lyrics of a song through moving pictures, pitching a product to a consumer, exploring the intricacies of someone’s life story or crafting a fictitious tale purely for entertainment. My goal is always to be a great storyteller.” Her track record certainly echoes this ambition.
