April Moreau is a comedic director and writer with a passion for female-driven narratives. Informed by her type-A personality, Moreau’s style of storytelling is precise and efficient. She is a survivor of thirteen years of Catholic school and, as a result, loves creating work that is irreverent, particularly when discussing the female experience. Moreau was born and raised in Cape Coral, Florida, and later attended the University of Michigan, where she earned a BFA in Acting. She continued her education in Los Angeles, studying TV Writing at UCLA Extension and improv and sketch at Groundlings and UCB. Moreau’s directing career began in the world of digital shorts, with her work being featured on the homepage of Funny or Die and Elizabeth Banks’ WhoHaha. In 2018, her film, BITCHES BY THE SEA, screened in Paul Feig’s shorts contest at the Women in Comedy Festival presented by HBO. Her most recent project, RIDE IN PROGRESS, premiered at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival.
