Eva Gonzalez Szigriszt
Eva is a Spanish screenwriter with a taste for sci-fi, horror and fantasy. She’s also a practitioner of Bujinkan Budo Ninjutsu ie. she’s an actual ninja (but don’t tell anyone).
Eva grew up in Spain in a family of artists. Her parents were musicians, and her grandfather was a TV and theater director. Her career also began in theater, like her grandfather, until ultimately she turned to film and TV and moved to L.A. where she studied filmmaking at the Los Angeles New York Film Academy campus.
Upon graduation she interned at Bold Films and Vendôme Pictures where she decided to pursue a screenwriting career. Her first pilot led to a literary manager which led to an agent at Agency for the Performing Arts (APA).
Eva is a genre writer working in both TV and film, live action and animation. She has recently written a LatinX horror TV show, Woman in the Book for Crypt TV, released on Facebook Watch. She created the live action TV adaptation of Lost Angels, based on a sci-fi comic book which sold to Lionsgate TV. She also co-created and is executive producing a LatinX animated sci-fi series with Eric Robles called 13 Baktun. Eva’s psychological thriller Turn, which made The Tracking Board’s Hit List in 2019 as one of the best specs to hit the market that year, just attached Spanish A-list actors Sergio Peris-Mencheta and Oscar Jaenada. She is set to direct this film.
Outside of martial arts, Eva volunteered at the Red Cross from age 10 to 22 (she has stories!), and currently volunteers at YoungStorytellers in Los Angeles. She has also worked as a futurist for SciFutures, an innovation house that uses science fiction to help Clients like NATO, Lowe’s and Pepsi. anticipate the future.
She is repped at APA and Cultivate Entertainment. You can find her on Twitter @evaszigriszt
