Happy new year! It's not too late to say that, right? I've been super busy so far this winter and have barely had time to come up for air. Anyway, I thought I'd let you know about some of the exciting projects I'm currently working on...
Some Sweet Oblivious Antidote - short film
This wonderfully original short film from Scoop Films boasts a stellar cast including Sir Lenny Henry and Wunmi Mosako. It's written by Moya O’Shea, directed by Christiana Ebohon-Green and is supported by funds from Creative England and BFI NET.WORK.
Exasperated by her daughter Ivie’s refusal to converse in anything other than Shakespearean verse, Esosa resorts to psychoanalysis for a cure. The psychiatrist and her therapist struggle for a solution until a full-on Shakespearean quote-off on a theatre stage uncovers the real reason for Ivie’s affliction.
Dusk - short film
My third collaboration with the very talented writer/ director Jake Graf, Dusk tells the story of Chris, a transgender man looking back on his life and the decision he made not to medically transition and live his life as a woman. As Chris imagines what might have been, he comes to realise for some decisions there is no right answer and that it's those that truly define us. This powerful film stars Elliot Sailors, Duncan James and Victoria Emslie.
Different For Girls - web series
12 part web drama featuring a group of lesbian, bisexual women and gay men whose lives and loves revolve around children, marriage, betrayal and divorce. That is not to say that there isn’t room for drink, drugs, sex and dancing. There is. Just not in front of their partners and children. Set in Chiswick, the women are the real lesbian housewives of West London! Adapted from the brilliant novel by Jacquie Lawrence and directed by Campbell X, Different for Girls stars Rachel Shelley, Victoria Broom, Guinevere Turner and many more!
