Your upcoming movie Run Rabbit - in a few words, what's it going to be about?


Run Rabbit is about two bullies who take bullying too far and are left to face the consequences for their actions.


What inspired you to make a film about bullying, and did you ever experience any bullying first hand, if I may ask?


I think bullying is very evident in all forms of social circles, more so for school children. I have witnessed a lot of bullying and have seen how the victim can become very isolated.


Other sources of inspiration when writing Run Rabbit?


I like to write strong character driven scripts with original twists. Hearing stories of children being bullied has always stuck deeply within me and so I wanted to write something which wasn’t your normal bullying story.


Somewhere you're calling Run Rabbit a "psychological horror story" - care to elaborate, and what can you tell us about your movie's approach to horror?


Without giving too much away, Run Rabbit will be about the psychological side of bullying, not necessarily from the victim, we will be playing with the minds of the bullies.


What can you tell us about the intended look and feel of Run Rabbit?


Run Rabbit will be dark, with lots of suspense. The script calls for lots of great lighting, I’m really looking forward to working with a great team and having fun creating some chilling moments.


You'll also play a supporting role in Run Rabbit, right? So do talk about your character for a bit, and what will you draw upon to bring her to life? And did you write Loretta with yourself in mind from the get-go?


Loretta is the victim in Run Rabbit. I wanted to be more behind the camera this time, to be able to direct and develop the two bullying characters, the acting will be subtle but challenging for the actresses. Loretta is an interesting character to play and is nothing like any role I’ve had before.


Anything you can tell us about the rest of your key cast and crew yet, and why exactly these people?


We will have the wonderful Jacob Teixeira editing Run Rabbit, Jacob edited the trailer for my debut short film Dead Wrong. He’s based in Santa Monica and has worked for a number of years working on the hit TV programme Survivor.

Nikki Tipping is our talented make-up artist, she’s had years of experience working in fashion and film.

The brilliant Fort Nowhere will be doing the music, they recently did an amazing cover of Bob Dylan’s ‘Masters of War’ which was used for the Vikings trailer on the History Channel. They are currently writing music for a number of exciting projects.

I’m really excited to work with each member, they are all so talented and bring a wealth of knowledge to the project.


As we're talking, Run Rabbit is still in its fundraising stages - so do talk about your campaign for a bit!


The campaign has had an amazing start, I self-funded Dead Wrong, which was on a very small budget and have budgeted Run Rabbit around the same principles of a very small budget. The more we raise the more we will be able to invest in equipment, crew and post. It’s wonderful to see how many people are behind indie films and women filmmakers.


Once the budget's in place, what's the schedule - and even if it's waaay too early to ask, any idea when and where the film will be released onto the general public yet?


The campaign finishes in mid-August, we would like to shoot it in early September then it’s off to Jacob before finishing it back in the UK.


Any future projects beyond Run Rabbit you'd like to share?


I am producing a feature film called As Darkness Falls with Mark Peters, where I will be playing a lead character. I am also currently working on a few scripts which I would love to develop, two are for feature films.


From what I know, Run Rabbit is your second film as a director - so what can you tell us about your directorial debut Dead Wrong, and lessons learned from it? And what prompted you to pick up directing in the first place?


I read Robert Rodriguez’s Rebel without a Crew and was hooked, I went away and wrote Dead Wrong. I learnt a lot from Dead Wrong especially how important preproduction is and filmmaking really is 24/7. Whilst filming and editing Dead Wrong I could see further ways I can expand creatively and want to develop that further with Run Rabbit.


Your initial claim to fame though is as an actress - so what got you into acting in the first place, and did you receive any formal education on the subject?


I’ve always loved acting, becoming a different character and adding hidden layers. I had a wonderful speech and drama teacher who would come into our school, Pauline Leonard. I then joined her drama school LSDA where I earned the LAMDA Gold Award. I also attended the summer intensive acting class at the Lee Strasberg Institute in LA. I was fortunate to hold the premiere of Dead Wrong at the Lee Strasberg Institute last summer.


What can you tell us about your filmwork prior to Run Rabbit?


I have had parts on the BBC drama Casualty a couple times, several feature films and have done numerous voice-over. I have also acted in a number of music videos and commercials.


How would you describe yourself as an actress, and some of your techniques to bring your characters to life?


Very hard working, I like to stay until everything is 100%. I have studied a number of techniques and like to incorporate a mixture in my work. I enjoy playing difficult characters where I can bring raw emotion to the part.


Actresses, filmmakers, whoever else who inspire you?


Meryl Streep is such a strong inspirational actress, I was lucky to meet her on the set of Mama Mia, she’s an amazing actress. I’m inspired by so many and so many different genres, but anyone who gets out there and makes a successful feature is inspiring.

Although 90% of my writing has a dark interior, my personal choice of films is quite varied including classics; Blythe Spirit, Harvey, The Godfather to Disney films. I also like films with strong female leads.


... and of course, films you really deplore?


I don’t enjoy films which belittle females. I think if a film has been made, someone had passion behind the project and that should always be commended.
