History

For many years, Lucy concentrated on producing mainly abstract paintings and occasionally still produces paintings today – examples of these can be found scattered across the web and on the walls of other people’s homes following exhibitions in galleries.

The introduction of affordable digital cameras then enabled Lucy to translate her previous experience into a new format and explore photography. It wasn’t long before she got hold of her first camera that could record HD video footage and that’s when this website was created.

As a Writer, Producer, Director or Editor – Lucy has a passion for filmmaking and enjoys collaborating with a wide variety of people in order to produce this work.

From 2010 – 2012, Lucy produced 90+ short documentaries on a wide variety of topics, most of which are available to view for free from this website. Some of these pieces are of a political nature and illustrate from a first hand perspective the many protests and demonstrations that occurred during this turbulent period of time within the UK. It is advised that you approach these pieces with discretion if you are of a sensitive nature.

At the end of 2012, Lucy created her first serial documentary. Consisting of 9 parts, Doc:Comedy explored how the world influences a comedian’s work & how a comedian influences the world in which they live.  This production received cinema screenings while acting as a flagship film for the Doc:Film Festival at the end of that year.
