Lucy is a hugely exciting filmmaker who studied Fine Art at Central St Martins before moving into filmmaking and establishing herself as a successful promos director. Lucy got her start in filmmaking in an unexpected way – by blagging her way into the role of choreographer and make-up artist on a promo despite being qualified for neither. Since then Lucy has won numerous awards for her work on high-profile campaigns and music videos working with the likes of Gucci, Vogue, Nike and Warp Records. Lucy is currently in post on a beautiful campaign she has directed for Gay Pride which features an array of non-actors. Lucy’s work is full of charm and humanity and she is a natural at making her talent feel comfortable whether it be a K-Pop Superstar or someone she has cast from the street – approaching both with the same amount of sensitivity and respect. This is demonstrated in Lucy’s critically acclaimed short film PAGANS which featured only one professional actor. PAGANS is a striking portrait of adolescent grief and girlhood that captures London life in all of its multiplicity. PAGANS was selected as Vimeo’s Staff Pick, Short of the Week and was showcased at Raindance, Encounters and London Short Film Festival and went on to be featured on Dazed & Confused. A feature length version of PAGANS entitled HYPER HYPER is currently in development (Lucy will of course write and direct). Lucy has received a number of accolades for her work including Underwire’s Outstanding Talent, the BFI Future Films Award and UK Music Video Award nominations for her work with John Grant, Darkstar and Tiny Carriages in addition to being included in Dazed & Confused Top 100 Global Creatives.
