Tamra Davis began working in film while participating in an apprenticeship at production studio American Zoetrope, where they were working on Francis Ford Coppola’s film, One From the Heart.

It was Coppola himself who suggested Davis attend college. After graduating from Los Angeles City College, Davis built her reputation directing creative and edgy music videos for popular bands including Black Flag, Sonic Youth, and N.W.A.

She has directed eight films, her biggest commercial success being the 1995 film Billy Madison. In spite of receiving mostly scathing reviews, Billy Madison developed a cult following.[/vc_column_text][rev_slider_vc alias=”women-in-film”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″ css=”.vc_custom_1474419229237{margin-top: 0px !important;padding-top: 0px !important;}”][vc_custom_heading text=”More from Pryme…” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Cinzel%3Aregular%2C700%2C900|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal” el_class=”sidebar-heading”][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”avada-custom-sidebar-cultureheadline”][vc_widget_sidebar sidebar_id=”avada-custom-sidebar-culturelist” el_class=”headlines-list-column”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text=”More from Pryme…” font_container=”tag:h3|text_align:left” google_fonts=”font_family:Cinzel%3Aregular%2C700%2C900|font_style:700%20bold%20regular%3A700%3Anormal” el_class=”sidebar-heading”][ess_grid alias=”grid-3by2″][/vc_column][/vc_row]
