I’ve always been attracted to dark stories and twisted, conflicted characters and I appreciate high production values and cinematic appeal. I recently completed my 6th short film, STOP DEAD, a proof of concept for horror feature THE STILL MAN, with Shadowhouse Films (HOST, DASHCAM) and BFI Vision Award recipient, Lunar Lander Films. With a background in mostly drama and suspense, I am interested in incorporating those elements to the horror genre, bringing flesh and body to subconscious fears.
Previous shorts include IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN ME for Sky's Halloween Comedy Shorts, with Merman producers Clelia Mountford and Sharon Horgan (CATASTROPHE). My controversial short COLD WARRIOR, UK Premiered at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, won the Best Short Film Youth Jury Award at Flickers: Rhode Island International Film Festival and the Meeting Point Special Mention Award at the Seminci Valladolid Film Festival. A NEUTRAL CORNER won Best Short Film at the Kodak Showcase, and was the Opening Night film at the Dinard British Film Festival in front of Ken Loach's IT'S A FREE WORLD. SNOW was official selection at the New York Film Festival in front of Hong Sang Soo's TALE OF CINEMA and THE BUTTON, my very first short, which was Best Digital Film Nominee at Raindance and featured in their Best of the Fest DVD.
I am an alumna of various talent programmes, including BFI NETWORK x BAFTA Crew, the EIFF Talent Lab, the Berlinale Talent Campus, Film London's PFM Micromarket, BFI's Think-Shoot-Distribute and Guiding Lights and featured in a special issue of MOVIESCOPE magazine celebrating Women In Film.
I studied film and media at the Paul Valery University in Montpellier, France. My first job as a runner led me down a career path in post-production. I was a Digital Online Editor for Company 3 London until 2016, with credits on films such as LEGEND, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE - ROGUE NATION and SPECTRE.
My love of film and storytelling all started with a hand cranked Fisher Price Movie Projector. Watching the Jungle Book, Mickey Mouse and Bambi projected on the wall at the back of my parents' shoe shop sparked my imagination.
