MILLIE ON AIR PRODUCTIONS
Millie On Air Productions was founded in 2014 by filmmaker Millie Rose Heywood. Driven, at the time, by a dearth of quality content with women at the helm, the company was formed to remedy this by producing boundary-pushing, socially-relevant entertainment with a powerful female voice.
Their first project Spirit Stones, achieved critical acclaim when it was selected as a finalist in Tropfest 2014. Following this, short film Girl Falling, after premiering at Revelation Perth International Film Festival in 2018, went on to receive critical acclaim in a strong film festival run around the world.
On January 1st 2021 Millie On Air Productions released web-series Retrograde, an occult drama based in east-Los Angeles. They are currently in pre-production on Australian feature films By The Fall and Unwrapped, in association with Eleven Six Productions.
