A newly-fledged Producer/Director, I'm looking for a directing role to build on my experience. Efficient and conscientious, I love looking into fascinating subjects, interviewing interesting people and making something visually exciting at the end of it. I enjoy the challenge of delivering on a tight schedule in a dynamic situation; contingency planning, last-minute changes and expecting the unexpected! I’m tenacious in gaining access to contributors and locations, and my solid scientific background helps me track down the latest science stories and make sense of them for a wider audience in a creative way. I've recently had my first taste of directing and I'm looking for roles which will further develop my shooting and directing skills. Read Less

Frances is an incredibly strong producer with a keen sense of where the story lies and what is required to tell that story in an accessible and interesting way. During her time on Superfoods I was so impressed by her work that I asked her to direct firstly some sequences and then an entire story. Her shoots were faultless...the crew loved working with her, the edit thought her rushes were from a seasoned and highly experienced director. I suspect that Frances can do whatever she puts her mind to - to an exceptional standard.

Quite simply, if she's available you should hire her. I could waffle on but the bottom line is that she's very good at everything. You're getting a producer masquerading as an AP.
