It was exciting enough to find out that the short film I co-wrote, Hula, was nominated for Best Drama at the 2016 BAFTA New Talent Awards. Then last night, things got even better when we heard we’d won!
It’s a real testament to the work of everyone involved; cast and crew, and all who supported it, and I’m thrilled to have been part of it right from (almost) the start. Extra thanks to Director and co-writer Robin Haig for inviting me to be a part of it.
The film had fantastic men and women involved in its creation, but because there’s a particular lack of women in the film industry, it’s filling me with pride that the film’s core team of co-writers, director, producer, and the lead role were all female.
It’s also the first time I’ve seen my name etched on an award – which is a bit of a buzz.
Nice work everyone. Now go team Hula, out into the world where your loveliness can be seen far and wide!!
