Post Process

Director's Statement

I once read a quote on a fridge magnet that said “Speak the truth, but  leave immediately after”, but what if you have spoken this truth to someone who has the power to hire you for a job - one that you need to make ends meet? When I was first approached to direct Honestly Charlotte I was reminded of some of my own experiences juggling 'real' jobs while pursuing my own artistic endeavours.

As Charlotte negotiates her need for work against her desire for a life as an artist, her perspective of the day-to-day grind struck a chord with me, and will perhaps also ring true for anyone else who has ever worked in an office. As a first-time director, I was very fortunate to work with great material, talented cast and a stellar all-female team. I couldn't have asked for a better debut.
