Lisa Bryer


Lisa, who began her career as a runner straight from school, set up Cowboy Films in 1990. Cowboy Films produced ground-breaking music videos for bands such as The Cure, David Bowie and The Psychedelic Furs. Cowboy Films also produced commercials for clients including BMW and Kleenex and short films including the Oscar® winning Wasp. After producing the box office success, The Last King of Scotland, which won an Academy Award® and many BAFTA awards, Lisa moved from production to pursue her passion in education and mental health for young adults. Lisa is the co-founder of the London Screen Academy, a sixth form academy opening in September 2019 for 16 to 19-year-olds in London who have a passion for film and television. She has been, and continues to be, a Governor and a Trustee for a number of schools and charities.
