Paula Ely
Paula Ely has worked in the film, television, and media business for more than two decades. In 1991 she joined the television division of Carolco Pictures, then Hollywood’s largest independent production company. After Carolco’s closing, Paula joined Kazmark Entertainment Group, a firm which creates programming trade opportunities in collaboration with major advertising agencies. Paula oversaw the creation of the Kazmark subsidiary Springbok Films in 2002, and has served in producing roles for several films under the Springbok banner.

In 2005, Paula produced and directed the documentary “Vanishing Cultures: Bushmen of the Kalahari,” an official selection at nine national and international film festivals. The film was named “Best Documentary” at the Gulf Coast Film & Video Festival, and Paula received the “Best Producer” award at the La Femme Film Festival in Los Angeles. The documentary was also selected to partner with Peter Gabriel’s human rights organization WITNESS in a Movies That Matter project in association with jaman.com. In 2009 Paula managed production administration for the PBS pledge drive special “The Answer is You,” featuring Michael Bernard Beckwith.

Paula produced and directed fundraising videos and public service announcements for the non-profit organization PAWS/LA, and has been a panelist for six years for the Roy W. Dean Los Angeles Film Grant. She is currently at work producing a new documentary entitled “The Money Stone,” directed by Stuart Harmon, which explores the little-known world of illegal gold mining in Ghana. “The Money Stone” has received a grant from the New York State Council for the Arts, a Brooklyn Arts Council grant, and the Roy W. Dean Los Angeles Documentary Video Grant.
