When aspiring filmmaker Emily Dell received a film-writing grant at the University of California-Berkeley, she drafted her sister Elizabeth to help manage the project. That partnership soon grew into Two Camels Films, a movie production company that eventually found a home in Los Angeles. Emily is the writer and director while Elizabeth is the producer, and they collaborate on every step of production. Two Camels Films gained attention in 2010, when Showtime picked up their feature film “B-GIRL,” about a female breakdancer. In 2012, the sisters launched a Kickstarter project to create a documentary about young women entrepreneurs, called She Means Business.
