Michaela Manas Malina

Development Department Production Manager

MMM (as everyone calls her) is the Development Production Manager at Locksmith.

Originally from Czechia, she moved to London 12 years ago to follow her dream to work in the film industry. After obtaining a Masters degree in film producing at the Goldsmiths University of London, she started her career as a Central & Layout Coordinator on Sherlock Gnomes at Mikros Animation. Later, she went to experience working in the VFX world at Framestore on shows like Christopher Robin and Avengers: Infinity War.

She joined Locksmith in 2018 as a Senior Art Coordinator on Ron’s Gone Wrong and soon after got promoted to Art & Legal Supervisor. After Ron, she was lucky enough to join Locksmith’s fast growing development department and continues supporting the team as a PM across all future shows.

Besides adoring being a Mum, Michaela is an adventure lover & life enjoyer with great passion for extreme sports, travelling, music and filmmaking.

Together with her husband they shot a few live action short films on the side and have recently developed & written a feature horror script they are hoping to get on screens.
