Louise’s fascination with the visual arts came around at a very young age, and after starting her professional career working in the design industry, she soon moved on to studying Film and theatre. She then started working as an Assistant Director in the feature film industry in London, working with some of the most acclaimed directors such as Alejandro Almenabar (Agora), Lee Tamahori (The Devils Double), Dustin Hoffman (Quartet), Joe Wright (Anna Karenina), and many more.
After gaining invaluable lessons in the process of filmmaking and its industry, She went on to produce and direct a short film ‘Duende’ which has gone on to be officially selected for the Edinburgh short film festival 2013 and the Van d’Ors film festival 2013 here in London. In 2014 She directed the short film ‘Pardon the Intrusion’, which has gone on to win awards at Cleveland International Film Festival, New York No Limits film festival, Charleston International Festival & Beaufort International Film Festival, as well as being officially selected for Palm Springs International Film Festival, Aesthetica Film Festival, Short of the week and many more. It also qualified for Oscar nomination.
She is currently working on two feature film ideas, one of which is an extension of this short film ‘Snug as a bug’.
‘Snug as a Bug’ was a script that stood out from the crowd. It’s funny, dark and incredibly well written – I just had to make it into a film. The feature attached to it has incredible potential and I’m really excited to begin the process with the writers to make it into a film. The short is filled with references, something that got me really excited.
