About me

Lucy is a BAFTA award winning director who is as well known for her documentaries as she is for commercials.


Critically acclaimed documentary work for the BBC includes "Lido", "Carlos Acosta the Reluctant Ballet dancer" for Imagine, a series called "Naked" about how you feel about your body at different lifestages and a trilogy called "Bridges" which took her to Bosnia and New York.


She has shot a wide range of commercial campaigns including the very first "Dove" Real Beauty campaign (Ogilvy), Visit Wales (Weiden & Kennedy), First Direct (WCRS), Royal Bank Of Scotland (M&C Saatchi) Macmillan Cancer Care (Arthur) and a cinema film for Medecins Sans Frontieres shot in Liberia.


Lucy always embraces new opportunities and formats and this freshness feedsinto all strands of her work. Her short Film "The Birthday" was one of twelve films selected for the International Berlin Film Festival and wasshortlisted for the Turner Short Film Prize, her installation art film "Shipping Forecast" for The National Maritime Museum ran on a giant video wall in the entrance for five years. She has written and researched abook to accompany her BBC series about Bridges and more recently staged a full scale theatrical show in Havana with her photos and video projections as part of the set.


She is a nightmare to sit next to at a dinner party as she will have your life story down within minutes!
