I was so excited to be involved with such a great team for the infamous London sci-fi 48hour film challenge! Being a part of a team and collaborating with everyone to take something from the brief, to script, to screen in such a small time frame is such a challenge- but we made the Top 10 short list!!! Our entry can be found below
This week has been all about networking and celebrating!
First off, I had the cinematic screening of ‘Holt’ to attend. This was shot over the course of the summer 2014, and so the screening was an amazing opportunity to catch up with everyone who had been involved. Seeing the project come together as a whole was so much fun to watch, and on the morning of the premiere, we received news that we had made official selection for the first film festival the film has entered! The film had a great reception, and I feel that its’ festival journey is just beginning- so watch this space!!
I then topped the week off by attending the ‘Feast of Varanasi’ world premiere. It was amazing to see and hear
about the journey of the film both on and off screen, to see the final product, despite the difficulties and more so to be Rajan Kumar Patels’ directorial debut- it really is a thrilling watch. We met so many warm, supportive people atthe after party, including Rajan himself, who spoke very highly of everyone involved. I firmly believe he is one to watch and this film really is a product of passion and drive- give it a watch!
First feature of the year wrapped! The film was written and directed by Benjamin Rider at B.R. productions and Riding Pictures. The team were so lovely, and I got to work with a great bunch of new actors, which for me is always a massive part of my work. The film is loosely based on Shakespeares’ ‘A Midsummer Nights’ Dream’, and shot in a completely unique way that without giving too much away will be an interesting watch!
48 hour challenge
So recently I was asked by CarlLewis Films who I had the pleasure of working with last year to be their lead actress for the upcoming 48 hour films challenge! With such an incredible team of creatives behind it the filming ran so smoothly, from the initial meeting where teams are given the criteria for there film, through the script writing, then filming, editing and composing to the ultimate hand in. All the stills below were taken by Benjamin Gregory- Ring who can be found here. The final film can be seen here.
And to top off an awesome day- the film won its category! Congratulations to CarlLewis Films and everyone involved 😀
So I’m currently between Switzerland, France, Germany and Cameroon, shooting for Lab Studios’ TV pilot ‘Lifeline’. It’s been so much fun, with the most gorgeous locations and such a lovely cast and crew to work with- midway through and it’s safe to say this will be a gripping one to watch- In the mean time I’ve attached some pictures (and yes that is a double rainbow mid thunderstorm!)
Hey! So many exciting things kicking off at the moment- absolutely loving what 2015 is bringing!
To begin with, principal photography on short film ‘Sleep’ has wrapped- an awesome cast and crew to be involved with and I honestly can’t wait to see the finished product.
Short film ‘Holt’ (shot end 2014) is almost through post production, which means the trailer will be released soon so keep your eyes peeled!
Finally, I’ve secured a role in a dystopian TV series, set in our future where we suffer in a baron world and fight to survive. With this, I’ll be off filming in New York in the near future and will keep you posted along the way!
Now making its’ way through post production, the trailer for post apocalyptic short ‘Holt’ has been released- If you haven’t seen it yet, give it a watch to see what’s to come!!
So first post of the year- Hi!
I’ve been cast in 2 short films- both destined for film festival circulation, and set to be filmed mid and late 2015. I can’t reveal too much at this point, but both characters are extremely exciting and I’m loving the pre production character development!
Okay so awesome news! Firstly my new showreel’s up! (After a few hours of battling with wordpress…)
And secondly- UNDERCOVER IS HITTING AMERICAN TV!
The pilot I was involved in a while back has been accepted onto the channel ‘SHORT’, which plays in numerous countries, including the US! So excited- more details such as dates etc to follow soon!
Okay so I’m so ridiculously excited to announce that in less than a week I am attending my first red carpet premiere in LA! ‘David & Goliath’ will be premiered in a confidential location in less than a weeks time, meaning I get to dress up and walk the infamous red carpet!
I’ve started a blog to record all my behind the scenes prep & I’m going to create a vlog once in LA of the build up to and the actual event itself, all of which can be found HERE. Give it a read and let me know what you think!
