Impressionist and comedienne, Francine Lewis rose to fame and captured the nation's hearts when she appeared on on Britain’s Got Talent in 2013 impersonating Cheryl, Stacey Solomon and Katie Price amongst others. She went on to win the public vote in the semi finals, making it through to the final.
Life can be a little bit surreal at times and in some respects it can feel, well, a little bit full circle. I know I'm being ambiguous but bare with me... On Thursday night I attended the film première of Eddie the Eagle, a movie made by Lionsgate UK, a company I used to work for.
...As many of you know I'll soon be setting off for a few days at the Cannes Film Festival... First up is a dress fitting for frocks for the festival and BritMums Live with Fever London in the Big Smoke and a crazy-early flight to the South of France on Tuesday morning.
I wanted to share my latest showreel (it's what directors such as myself use to get more commissions: a short montage of the highlights of my directing work). Included below are clips from my multi award winning* short films, TV docs, drama, music videos, promos, fashion films and commercials. I've been fortunate enough to have worked with some of the finest actors and crew working today.
For those who don't know, I'm a freelance writer/director directing drama, documentary, shorts, promos and music videos. I've been lucky enough to work with some of the leading production companies in the world and for diverse broadcasters from the BBC to film company Lionsgate UK- and I've even scooped some awards to boot along the way. I love my job-truly, I feel like I get to play and get paid for it.
Love for my hometown!
