My first feature film, Beast, was funded by BFI and Film 4 and has just completed post production. In 2014 I was selected to be part of Guiding Lights scheme and was mentored by James Marsh. In 2013 I made my first TV drama, Henry, through Channel Four’s Coming Up scheme and made the short, Keeping Up With The Joneses, through the BFI’s 2012 Shorts Scheme and the film was nominated at the 2014 BAFTA’s and BIFA’S. In 2011 I was one of Screen International’s UK Stars of Tomorrow and my feature script was selected to be developed through the 2011 Torino Film Lab Script & Pitch Workshops and was then selected to be part of 2012 FrameWork programme. Previously to that my short film, Rite, was nominated at the 2011 BAFTA’s and BIFA’s, played at over 40 international film festivals and won Best Film at Soho Rushes Festival, Message to Man Film Festival and Almeria Film Festival.
