Central Coordinator & Assistant to the Director and Producers, That Christmas
Marketa has always dreamt of a career in film and television. She first studied the theory and history of the medium in the Czech Republic. After that, she dived into practical experience with a one-year Production Team Studies program at FAMU International during which she managed international student projects. She soon held roles as a Runner and Production Assistant in a photo studio.
She was introduced to the animation industry thanks to a project called Even Mice Belong in Heaven (2021), a puppet stop-motion animated feature, where she spent a year working as Second Assistant Director. Following this experience, animation production became her main focus.
After moving to the UK, she received a Film and TV Producing master's degree in Bournemouth. In 2022, she celebrated her return to the animation industry thanks to landing a position at Locksmith Animation. She is currently working on That Christmas, coming to Netflix in 2024. She is always striving to be surrounded by ideas and creative minds.
