I've directed the final block of Silent Witness this year, to air in February 2019. It's been great working with an amazing crew including producer Kiaran Murray-Smith, DoP Sergio Delgado and editor Benjamin Gerstein.

STEREOHYPE ~ PIN BADGE SET
I was invited by Stereohype to contribute to their B.I.O. (By Invitation Only) pin badge series. It was wonderful to dust off my design skills and use my photographs for an art project again. My set of four are based on the elements:
Cloud / Air ~ Slow / Earth ~ Flower Crown / Water ~ Light Switch / Fire.
You can purchase the pins individually or as larger giclée prints here.
BAFTA ELEVATE 2017
I am delighted to have been selected for the BAFTA Elevate Programme 2017. I feel very lucky to be part of this talented group of women and hope that we can all progress to directing high end Television and Features with the support of BAFTA and its members.
The British Academy of Film and Television Arts has revealed the names of 15 female directors it will be supporting through BAFTA Elevate, a new bespoke annual programme that aims to elevate individuals from under-represented groups to the next stage of their career. The participants were welcomed at a reception of Wednesday evening (17 May), attended by leading film and television executives.
The 2017 BAFTA Elevate programme addresses the low numbers of female directors being employed in the industry – between 2004 and 2014, just 13.6% of working directors were female (Directors UK, 2016) – and will support the participants to progress in high-end television and feature films.
Raising Films Making it Possible Panel at the LSFF
The wonderful critic and Raising Films co-founder Sophie Mayer hosted this panel about how to be a parent or carer and a filmmaker. My co-conspirators included Jessica Levick, Manjinder Virk and Alex Taylor. It was great to be a part of such a positive group.
The Stick (The Screenwriter's Revenge) is selected for The London Short Film Festival 2017 and nominated for the Lo-Budget award. It will screens in the programme LO-BUDGET MAYHEM at HACKNEY PICTUREHOUSE, 13/01/2017 20:30.
