Maddie Deutch is a writer, actor, director and musician from Los Angeles, California.
Beginning as a singer, she spent a large part of her childhood performing in charity events, and learning from many entertainment heavyweights. This prompted her admission into the Los Angeles County High School for the Arts where she began writing her own music and participating in institutions like the Grammy Ensemble, the Monterey Jazz Festival, and winning the esteemed Silver Award from the National Foundation for the Advancement of the Arts.
Upon graduation she was offered a scholarship to attend The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, with a concentration in voice. However, once in university, she immediately turned her attention to filmmaking and composing.
She graduated with honors and went on to act in independent films such as “50-1” and “Windsor”, and television like History mini series “Texas Rising” and Cinemax’s “Outcast.”
Throughout this time she raised funds for her first feature as a screenwriter “The Year of Spectacular Men.” The film was shot in late 2015, with Madelyn playing the lead role and also composing the music score.
She is currently directing an original short, a handful of music videos, selling multiple projects for television, and setting up her next feature which she wrote - and will direct and score as well.
