Currently In Development: GIRLS ON FILM
Girls on Film (working title) is a documentary film project currently in pre-production, developed in collaboration with a network of adolescent females across the South West and North West of England. I am working in consultation with Dr. Kate Morton: a social scientist with a background in researching health and identity from a feminist perspective.
This project is a response to two phenomena:
1- The chronic under representation of females as curators of popular culture
2 - Scientific research into the mental health of female adolescents and the impact of the male gaze
Through a programme of qualitative research workshops we will consult with more than 100 adolescent girls, aiming for proportional ethnic representation of the UK demographic. Reflecting on our findings an experienced creative team will cast and collaborate with a group of young female participants to devise a theatrical documentary film which asks the following question: How would women be represented without the male gaze?
This project also encompasses a work experience programme for emerging female film makers through the University of the West of England.
CO-DIRECTOR/PRODUCER: MAKE THE MOST OF ME
A documentary short film I produced and co-directed with Sarah Watts.
This film was funded by an Arts Council Grant and filmed over an 8-month period with the residents of Acer House Care Home in Weston Super-Mare. The project comprised a work experience programme for students of the University of the West of England, and we were pleased to work with Doghouse Post Production, BDH and composer Dave Price.
MAKE THE MOST OF ME was first screened at a curated showcase event at Bristol Old Vic in August 2016, and the project concluded with a tour of screenings to other care homes throughout Weston Super-Mare and Portishead. It was included in the Diverse City festival programme and awarded an Official Selection for the London Lift-Off Film Festival.
