I will be heading to Dublin today to be part of the Women In horror Month weekend being hosted by Sara Louise Elliot. I will be on a couple fo panels talking, screening The Herd and also talking part in a film making workshop with fellow film maker Katie Bonham. Lots going on and looking forward to a trip to Dublin!
I designed this demo for Animal Justice Project yesterday. I had some graphic designers help and some other art department helpers. This was a small demo held outside the entrance to the symposium of the ‘We the Curious’ Science Museum where animal researchers and the CEO of Bristol University were in attendance. We wanted to show them that we are onto them, they have just recently extended their bio medical research lab meaning more animal experiments. This is not needed in this day and age, it is cruel and barbaric.
It’s that time of year again! Women in Horror Month! I am putting on some short horror films in Bristol at The Cube Microplex, screening short horror films directed by women and making money for a women’s charity in Bristol too! Get down on 21st February! 2018, 8pm.
A lovely little article from Plant Based News on ‘The Skin You’re In’ .
Just released the latest Animal rights short film I made called ' The Skin You’re in'. A short film about the Fur Industry. See the whole film on my work page. Thanks .
Online today answering questions for the online platform Viddsee ! They have been great promoting The Herd across the world and Asia.
I have been lucky enough to be working on the new Phillip K Dick’s ‘Electric Dreams’ for Left Bank Pictures, Sony and Bryan Cranston’s new company Moonbit. The epic production design is by Lisa Marie-Hall . I have been wanting to work with Lisa for a few years now and this is a huge job for it too! I am just on the one episode. Really good to be doing some Sci-Fi for such an outstanding series.
I helped make these awesome Light Brigade letters for the Animal Justice Project for the first of its kind in the UK. I also edited this little video for them. Check them out! They do great work for Animals in Labs! -www.animaljusticeproject.com
I shot a little short film this weekend which I wrote and directed called ‘The Skin You’re In’. It is similar to The Herd but shorter, punchier and about the Fur Industry.
A little video I made for the Bristol Animal Save at Tulip slaughter house.
Bristol Pig Save bears witness to pigs going to slaughter using a love based community approach.
They hold vigils every Thursday at Tulip slaughterhouse in Westerleigh.
I have a great little interview on 24/7 Bristol for my Women in Horror film night at The Cube. Also got titled a ‘Queen of Feminist Horror’ I will happily take that! Read it here – http://www.bristol247.com/channel/culture/film/news/meet-bristols-queen-of-feminist-horror

Out today is a podcast with Melanie and Notyourmilk talking The Herd , horror movies and veganism. https://www.podomatic.com/podcasts/notyourmilkpodcast/episodes/2016-10-26T13_50_57-07_00
Love & Loss a short film Melanie directed in September is currently in post production. The short is a cross over of two successful web series characters. Dear Jesus meets Shrink. Two women discuss life in a bar before realising what needs to change.
SWITCH my first short film is playing along with some other great British made horror short films in Berlin in January, at the wonderful Berlin British Short film festival. Screening at the Midnight Movies section. Thanks Berlin British shorts for playing all three shorts i’ve made! Happy 10th Anniverscary!
A bit late in blogging this but recently i was interviewed by Digital Film Makers magazine about being a Woman in Film. You can download the magazine here and read the full article -> http://dfmmag.com
This week I got to finally share the gorgeous Lounge Kittens video online , loved being able to shoot with an Arri Alexa again and with our little crew I think we did a great job!
I’ve been quite these last few months due to working flat out on a new ITV drama for Left Bank Pictures called ‘The Halcyon’ as a stand-by art director ( gotta pay those bills ) but on the odd day off I have been trying to keep up with little directing gigs. I was fortunate enough to do this fun little video about cat calling. I mixed in my passion for female superheros ( or lack of ) and made this on a crazy Saturday afternoon in East London in June with some friends. It’s even been blogged by Amanda Palmer! ace aye! Thanks Meow Meow’s!
The Herd for free online!
Last week through the animal charity Viva and White Lies The Herd went online for free. In a week we have had over 14.2k plays. Which is incredible! It is playing all over the world right now which is so wonderful. Thanks everyone!
Poster for the last public screening in the UK of The Herd at VegBar, Brixton, Jan 31st ! Also some other awesome award winning short films!
