Following the completion of her BSc, Lucy completed her doctoral studies in biological sciences during 2009 and currently works as a Research Associate with the University of Leicester.
As a Writer, Producer, Director or Editor – Lucy also has a passion for filmmaking and enjoys collaborating with a wide variety of people.
From 2010 – 2012, Lucy produced over 90 short documentaries on a wide variety of topics – the majority of which can be viewed for free from this website. Lucy also created a feature length documentary during the summer of 2012. This feature length production – Doc:Comedy received a cinema screening while acting as a flagship film in the Doc:Film Festival at the end of that year. More information about this film and details of how to purchase it on DVD can be found on the Doc:Comedy website.
Nurturing an interest in anthropology, Lucy is fascinated by what defines us as people and loves to examine why people behave the way that they do. This interest has resulted in the bucket load of documentaries and visits to many varied events and celebrations across the UK, conversing with different sections of society.
As from the beginning of 2013, Lucy is now using this experience to make a move into narrative film.
Her first two short films, a comedy and a political piece – ‘Fish’ and ‘Passing Time’ have competed in the Dave’s Comedy Festival Shorts and Sundance London short film competitions respectively.
Her third short film, a narrative music video – Tumbling, was Lucy’s first film made in collaboration with Seven / Five Productions for the band Muted Fnord. It received its premiere in May 2013.
Lucy was then featured as one of the Showcase profiles on the Midlands Movies website: http://www.midlandsmovies.com/#/showcase/4558436879
Her fourth short film was made during June and was infact a horror made for the ’666 Shortcuts to Hell’ competition: Sixth Sense.
The fifth short film – another narrative music video, was released in November. This time for the musician Grace Petrie, A Hell of a Good Time was based upon the life of the renowned physicist Richard Feynman and the relationship with his childhood sweetheart – Arline.
Lucy’s sixth short film of 2013 will be for the band ‘Grace and the Magic Roots’. An early edition of the song in question can be found here.
Ever one to enjoy investigating and experiencing various situations to their fullest extent, who knows what to expect from her in 2014?
