  •  About
    I am a multi-skilled writer/director, and a BBC- trained studio director and self-shooting filmmaker. My professional experience has encompassed working as a studio director across ITN news programmes and BBC Regional News and Current affairs. As a freelance filmmaker I worked on entertainment programmes including ‘Exclusive’ & ‘The Movie Chart Show’ for Channel 5 and British Airways inflight Entertainment. On a sabbatical from the BBC, I worked for the Caribbean Broadcasting Union in Barbados (CBU), and as a Producer and Director for a TV sports and events company in Trinidad & Tobago.
    I have produced and directed music videos, corporate films, promos and short documentaries. I have also written & directed several short fiction films including, most recently, Galahad Jones, a comedy drama starring Anton Lesser and Louis Emerick; Match Made In Heaven; and in 2010I wrote and directed a 6 part radio comedy series, The Gert Lush, for BBC Local radio Bristol. I have worked as a freelance director on several theatre productions, including directing 2 plays in the Basement Theatre at Bristol Old Vic, and directing script-in-hand performances and monologues for The Stepping Out Theatre Company and Kuumba Theatre Group. I also have experience of working as a 3rd Assistant Director on Film & TV productions, including Casualty and Eastenders for BBC Television, and as a runner on several film & TV drama productions. I am currently a Senior Technical Instructor in Film and Media at the University West of England, (UWE) Bristol. My hobbies include writing, (I write under my birth name of Laurie-Michelle Bourne), and I enjoy illustration and sculpting dragons.
