My new film 'Girls Guide to Muso Boyfriends' has been accepted for representation on the international film festival circuit by the British Council. The film, which is my first comedy, was completed on an artist residency in Berlin this year after previously been written in London and recording the music in Manchester. It features the voice over talents of Cerrie Burnell and acting talents of Antonia Turner.
