ABOUT ME

IMG_0282_edited.jpg

Hello, I'm Natalie. Born and bred in North West England, I graduated with a Masters in Film Production and a Bachelor of Arts in Media Production & Technology.​ During university, I got my first job in the television/media sector as Floor Manager at Goodison Park Football Stadium for The Premier League. This, and amongst my other university projects, opened my eyes to the world of filmmaking and discovered my passion for what goes on behind the scenes.

Since graduating, I've moved to London and have worked for various Film & TV companies including Amazon Studios, Warner Bros., and Marvel Studios. It was at Warner Bros where I started writing and directing short films. Armed with a strong understanding of camera and postproduction, I continue to experiment and challenge myself in both my writing and directing. My debut short film 'Today is a Good Day (2018)' and follow up shorts '#brunch (2019)' and 'Road Trip (2022)' are all award-winning films and have screened at over 50 international film festivals, including BAFTA & BIFA qualifying festivals. 'The Eagle's Gift' is my latest short film, which is currently on the '23/'24 festival circuit.

During this time, I have also been writing feature screenplays. I'm currently writing a historical drama set during WW1, and a present day supernatural horror.
