  • What kind of motivated you to want to produce your own films?

  • When I finished ballet school where I was for quite a few years, I tried out for theatre

  • school and I did not get in and I then wanted to decide what I wanted to do instead, and

  • a lot of people that I met that were producers in film, and TV and theatre had gone through

  • law so I actually got into law school and thought that would maybe be the way because

  • I wanted to tell stories and work with film

  • Me and my, who I share my company with, my partner Charles, we, we, sat, probably had

  • a lunch three/four years ago and kind of, with a laugh said, 'it would be amazing

  • if we could try and do that one day' and then, we started it last year. So, now we

  • have a few projects in development.

  • You said sort of in the past that you had a run of films at a certain period where you

  • noticed that your character hadn't had, like a conversation with any other women,

  • like, at all and is that something you're kind of conscious of in the films you want to make though your own production company?

  • Definitely, I think in general that's something that I want to bring awareness to.

  • We need female writers. Sometimes, I'm actually, I've been surprised I would probably consider myself

  • that women know women better. I have been surprised by men who have been able to write

  • women very well.

  • So, I think it's more about, talking about equality and bringing things up and

  • making sure that we have both women and men both in front of the camera but even more also behind.
