Writer & Producer
Maggie Colligan is the writer and producer of the film What’s in the Woods. She comes from the sprawling metropolis of Wayne Michigan, just outside of Detroit Rock city.
After a semester away from graduating with a business degree from Western Michigan University, she ditched that goal and headed west. She attended San Francisco State University where she studied screenwriting and film theory, while faithfully giving her all to the karaoke circuit in the Bay Area.
Her heroes in life are her family, who are all public servants in some way, shape, or form. Her love for horror movies comes directly from the influence of her sisters, and her claim to fame is a cameo in a documentary that followed two obsessed fans of the 80s pop teen sensation Tiffany. Important to note, she was a cameo, not one of the stars.... proving there is no such thing as a small role, and dreams really do come true.
Director & Megan
Florida-native, Michel Dominguez Beddome, began acting at the age of 5 while attending Julie Rohr Academy for the Performing Arts. She continued following her creative passion through high school all the way to the Big Apple where she attended NYU Tisch School of the Arts. While at NYU, Michel explored various forms of acting through David Mamet’s Atlantic Acting Studio, the Experimental Theater Wing, etc.
Michel graduated from NYU with a BFA in theater in 2013. She has since gotten the opportunity to explore all facets of production through her work with tv and commercial production companies—like TV Boy LLC—to learn what goes on behind the camera. Her most recent pursuits include directing and writing.
Raised by two Mexican parents, Michel is a first generation Mexican-American fluent in Spanish. She is also an avid traveler—having been to twelve countries and counting. This travel bug is passionate about learning about other cultures, languages, dialects & accents, and people.
