CHOOSE LOVE presents WOMEN IN FILM: A panel discussion raising funds and awareness for HELP REFUGEES

EXCITED TO BE HOSTING @helprefugeesuk #CHOOSELOVE shop event WOMEN IN FILM: A Panel discussion MON 10th Dec 17:30 – 19:00. LINK TO TICKETS IN BIO.

The panel will discuss the challenges and opportunities infront and behind the camera, with a Q&A after.

The panel consists of:

· Three times CANNES LIONS finalist producer Chi Thai.

· SCREEN INTERNATIONAL STAR OF TOMORROW, BROADCAST HOT SHOT, one of FORBES 30 UNDER 30 and on the BBC HOT NEW TALENT LIST writer-director Kate Herron @herronthatkate · As seen on DAZED DIGITAL and recipient of the BAFTA LA Scholarship in 2016 cinematographer Shivani Hassard @aeiaiai .

Please buy ticket with the link below:


The event is being held at the Choose Love shop at 32 FOUBERT’S PLACE, LONDON, which is the world’s first store where you can buy real gifts for refugees, contains practical items like tents, nappies and sleeping bags. But instead of taking them home, each purchase buys a similar item for someone who truly needs it.

This event is free but as always donations and purchasing of any item in the CHOOSE LOVE shop would be hugely appreciated.

In 2017, this new model of charitable giving raised nearly £1 million, it got the message out to over 200 million people, and it engaged celebrities, influencers and the public with a really positive message.

We believe funds should go straight to where they are needed most. So we make sure 100% of donations from the store go straight to supporting front line services.

Last year, the sale of life jackets from the Choose Love store raised £38,594, which enabled Refugee Rescue to assist 1,399 people braving the treacherous sea crossing from Turkey.

The Choose Love store was created by Help Refugees in partnership with creative collective, Glimpse. #helprefugees #chooselove #chooseloveshop

SO EXCITED! SHORT FILM I PRODUCED @allofmeshortfilm IS ON THIS WEEKS EPISODE OF @theguiltyfeminist 124: WOMEN OF COLOUR ON SCREEN WITH @dfdubz @kemahsvoice @elizabethuviebinene AND @yomi.adegoke ❤️ THANKS SO MUCH AGAIN to all our cast and crew and everyone who has supported us through every stage! YOU ALL made it so special! I tweeted @dfdubz and @sofiehagendk almost a year and a half ago to say how much #theguiltyfeminist has inspired and influenced me to make films that were sincere and as authentic as possible when delivering diversity. And I continue to push for this in our industry! THANK YOU @theguiltyfeminist for continuously helping me articulate, understand and take action to make change for better. Thank you to @aprilsunraes (my AOM production sister) for letting me know … otherwise this would’ve been a pretty hairy drive to work tomorrow listening to this and getting excited not knowing what to do 🤣

British East Asians in Theatre & on Screen

Excited to announce I am now a supporting member of @beatsorguk BRITISH EAST ASIANS in THEATRE and on SCREEN #representationmatters 🙌 BEATS are doing incredible work to push representation of British East Asians in Theatre and on Screen, something that I firmly stand by. I do this so that younger generations have honest and human portrayals of themselves, so that BEAs don’t have to continue to take on so much emotional baggage when trying to explain how stereotyping or micro-aggressions of any kind are not acceptable. …British East Asians in arts and culture are underrepresented, marginalised and maligned. In short, dehumanised.

Increasing British East Asian visibility is a vital step in emancipating British East Asians from invisibility and frees us from a chain of systemic discrimination. Seeking representation of British East Asians in the mainstream media that are not one-dimensional or ‘other-ing’ equalises our voices and faces. In this process of humanising our identity, we work towards building a new generation of role models and storytellers who are unencumbered by stereotyping and a society where East Asians are no longer ridiculed, fetishised, perceived as threats, or the perpetual foreigner….

Cast in Michelle Williams Gamaker’s ‘Encore (Resurrection Manifestations)’

Shooting Today for ‘Encore (Resurrection Manifestations)’ a short film Directed by the talented @michellewilliamsgamaker with the brilliant @sasha_frost at the former Carlton Cinema on Essex Road (London). The film will be a part of @tintypelondon “Essex Road V” moving image commission, and will be back projected into the gallery’s glass window facing the street this December 2018 – January 2019 (for those of you that wanna see my mug as a green ghost amidst your Christmas shopping 👻💚) and will be up permanently on the galleries website. Truly grateful for all of the artists I get to work with venturing with them on their marvellous journeys. Some neat facts about the old cinema: ‘A historic Grade II* listed building located in the heart of Islington, Gracepoint was built by the famous architect George Coles. The venue has a magnificent Art Deco style façade, infused with an Egyptian theme, dressed in multi-coloured hathernware tiles. The building started life when the Carlton Cinema chain bought the land in 1929 and opened a year later with a capacity of 2,226. The Egyptian design of the façade and interior was influenced by the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb by Howard Carter in 1922.’ 🤓#blithespirit #reanimation #spiritworld #oldcinema #starlets #oldtheatre #1940s #1930s #vaudeville

Interview with WE AUDITION

Thank you @weaudition for having me yesterday talking all things CASTING, SELF TAPES, REHEARSING and so much more. WeAudition.com is such a fantastic platform which is mega easy to navigate where actors, agents and casting directors can meet, rehearse and selftape! No more struggling to find a scene partner or having to rehearse alone (if that’s not your style). Most importantly it gives you a resourceful community to team up with. THANK YOU @weaudition 💪❤️🙌 Repost @weaudition ・・・

Self-taping for Hollywood from the UK… is it a thing?

We chat to rising UK star @jemma_moore (#wonderwoman #doom) for some tips! Full interview over on @weaudition on Facebook now!
