Holly Payberg-Torroija is a Partner/Producer at June Bug Pictures with over 20 years experience in all aspects of the business. Her career began at Nickelodeon studios and quickly progressed to working with and learning from personal heroes like Harold Ramis, Nora Ephron and Lisa Kudrow.
In 2000, Holly was named Director of Development for Signature Pictures, where she assisted Producer Moshe Diamant in bringing 3 independent films (Feardotcom, The Musketeer & The Extremists) from development to delivery at several major studios including Paramount and Warner Bros.
Her career as a Producer began in 2004 when she and her husband, Diego Torroija, opened their commercial production company, Two Door Productions. At Two Door, she specialized in producing VFX heavy commercials for clients such as Rooms To Go, Puma & Honda, but her big break came in 2006 when she was offered the opportunity to write and produce her first feature, the family comedy The Guardians starring Ron Pallilo and the pop group TGK, and she has been developing and producing original content ever since.
In 2017, Holly joined forces with partner/producer Jennifer Julian to form June Bug Pictures. Together they have a robust slate of inspired, thought-provoking female driven content in development including FREE HUNTER which has them teamed up with academy award winning producer Peter Heslop (King’s Speech, Imitation Game) and DIAMONDBACK which is slated for production in Sept 2020.
Holly considers it her personal mission to help tell the stories that haven’t been told, and to that end has launched a private online platform for writers (and Directors/Producers/Actors interested in writing) to help support them in their journey. For more info about LOVING THE PROCESS click here
