Director's Statement

My dream has always been to make movies, but I never really knew how or had the confidence to do so. Someone told me earlier this year just go write something, get a few friends and go out and make one, at the end of the day what did I have to lose. So that’s what I did and in July 2018 I made my very first short film. That film was Underland.

You never expect your first film to go anywhere but in just a few short months it has won several awards in LA and made the Official Selection at a number of Film Festivals. This is the start of my dreams and goals coming true. My second film saw a massive increase in crew and even gained an actor who has worked for many years in the British TV industry. I am working with Producers in America on a feature film, as well as working on a British feature and developing my very own feature film. What started as a bit of fun to finally do something I love, has turned into a developing career.

With the right attitude and motivation you can achieve anything you want and makes your dreams come true. I am a strong advocate for Women in Film and Women in Horror and hope to push my way into the industry as a strong Writer and Director.

It's a lovely slice of madness which oozes art from every frame and made me want to rush out and buy a vintage lampshade for the office. - Unknown, 13 Horror.com

It was a stunning short, the cinematography was superb, had everything a good horror short needs. - Tony Newton -
