Andrea Knoll, Producer

Producer and visual effects producer Andrea Knoll has been pushing boundaries in the entertainment industry for the past 20 years. Her most recent role as visual effects producer on the highly anticipated upcoming Amazon series Fallout is a perfect depiction of her love and passion for visual storytelling.

Andrea previously served as visual effects producer on season 2 of Hunters starring Al Pacino, the unique anthology series Tales from the Loop which earned her a Primetime Emmy nomination in 2020, as well as seasons 2 and 3 of the massively popular Netflix series Stranger Things. It was there that she brought her production expertise and expanded the scope of visual effects for the show, which led to its two Emmy nominations for Outstanding Special Visual Effects.

Andrea has also been a consulting producer on feature films such as Roland Emmerich's latest project Midway and Paul McCartney's upcoming animated musical High in the Clouds.

A film production graduate from Boston University, Andrea began her career in production management at DreamWorks where she managed a variety of highly successful feature films, TV specials and shorts under the leadership of Jeffrey Katzenberg including the BAFTA Awards nominees Turbo and Flushed Away, as well as Annie Award winner Monsters vs. Aliens.

She later joined Sony Pictures Animation to oversee a variety of projects and joined the studio's executive board to create a 5-year production plan including the Oscar-winning Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

In her spare time, Andrea enjoys voice acting in projects such as the 2017 DreamWorks hit Boss Baby, Oscar nominee The Croods, and the Netflix series House of Cards.
