Liz Butler is a lifelong pupil of cinema, art, music and people. As a child in south Louisiana she read every book she could get her paws on, made radio shows on a Fisher-Price tape recorder (complete with improvised jingles), and designed elaborate tree houses for fun.
These days, Liz thrives on organizing, budgeting, managing and running productions- and has paid the bills doing so since 2013. She is the rare bird who excels as much at Excel as she does running a set or dreaming up creative.
Liz loves the variety of production life, where it’s never the same day twice. She has produced, coordinated, managed, directed and assistant-directed for television, commercials, industrials, music videos, scripted comedy, multi-camera live events and documentary feature productions. She’s very good at solving the four-dimensional puzzle that is production.
Before her career in the film industry Liz got her variety fix by developing her skill set across a number of industries. She has produced large music events, owned and run a small catering company, roasted thousands of pounds of specialty coffee, managed teams, taught yoga, martial arts, and preschool, organized entire homes, visited each of the lower 48 states, and mastered the art of campfire cooking. She attributes her youthful appearance to good genes and 20+ years of daily sunblock.
In her free time Liz enjoys the quiet of the desert; the smell of clean laundry; reading, trying new recipes, practicing yoga, dancing with abandon, listening to podcasts, volunteering at Johnson’s Backyard Garden, and doing crossword puzzles.
She has been known to blast soul music while singing with her mouth full of chocolate in the car wash.
