Who is Hitting Heads?
It was the autumn of ‘07…
Tamalynne and Xiomara met at Danube International School, Vienna, and immediately bonded over a love for theatrics, film, and dark humour. They took part in every possible high school production, and always vowed to continue their creative endeavors after graduation.
In 2012, Meyer moved to London and Grant stayed in Vienna, but they kept in touch and, subsequently, decided it was time to create something bigger than just spoof videos and spontaneous midnight karaoke sessions.
So in April 2018, they created Hitting Heads Productions with the aim to elevate not only their own creative projects, but also (in the near future) to help fund and support creationists all around the world.
Tamalynne Grant is an actress/director and co-founder of “Hitting Heads Productions”.
She was born, raised and currently based in Vienna, Austria with Scottish/Uzbek roots.
In October of 2017, Tamalynne Grant graduated from a conservatoire in Vienna, Austria, achieving her diploma in dancing, singing and acting.
Since then she has starred as the “Punk Girl” in an Austrian play called “Bravo Girl! Weil ich ein Mädchen bin” written and directed by Nico Wind performed at Theater Drachengasse Vienna, Austria. She also took part in Jason Cloud’s English play “The Fall of Alice” (an adaption of “Alice in Wonderland”) where she played the supporting role “The Cheshire Cat” at Theater Spektakel Vienna, Austria. Not only does she work in theatre, she has also extended her work to film and chooses to be an all-round performer.
Currently she’s working on her own play "The Struggling Life of an Artist".
Xiomara Meyer is a Mexican-born German actress, writer, and producer.
In 2016, she graduated from Kingston University London with a bachelors degree in Drama with Creative Writing, and subsequently joined The Impi Theatre Company as executive producer for the premiere of their show The South Afreakins. They went on to have a sell out season at the EdFringe’16, as well as revered performances at London VAULT Festival and overseas in New Zealand.
A self-proclaimed horror nerd, her short horror story “The Canvas” was published in her university’s literary magazine in 2016. She has written for theatre and screen, but her most recent literary project is a horror fantasy novel in the final stages of editing (she is also seeking literary representation, just to put it out there).
Currently she works as executive producer for The Impi Theatre Company, trains at the London Meisner Company and is also working on her own play "The Struggling Life of an Artist".
