While studying Graphic Design at the art academy, I started to get interested in telling stories through film. The beautiful thing about films for me is that each story big or small can be told in a meaningful and impactful way. In my work, I generally focus on the people and the nature around us. So far, I have done this as a documentary filmmaker, therefore I'm very excited to implement this in a narrative film as well.
Making films encourages me to take a better look at the world around me and learn more about it. By sharing the stories I come across, I hope to inspire people to the same; to look around them and research what you see or hear.
Lobke van Eijk
After several years working as a (post) production assistant, I realised I wanted to work behind the camera to tell stories through film. I started a Master's degree in Filmmaking at the University of Bradford. I graduated in 2019 with my film 'Would You Rather about the different expectations of women. The beauty of film for me is the possibility to tell unexposed stories, to create awareness, and start conversations. Films create a way to connect.
Carly Halse as Ruby
Carly grew up in a small town loving books, dramatic dance routines, and make-believe games where she played every character. After a BA in Modern Drama at Brunel University, she very slowly began to figure out how she could make acting part of her everyday life.
Since graduating from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama in 2009, Carly has been working professionally as an actor, presenter, and voiceover artist.
Rachel Dobell as Gilly
Rachel always wanted to be an actress. However, she trained as a nurse after leaving school. During that time Rachel couldn’t resist the appeal for theatre and singing and joined London choirs including the BBC Symphony Chorus. Gradually, over the years, she gained experience and training and finally found herself a professional actress in her ‘40’s. Acting is a natural passion that she combines with her other passion for outdoor sports by being a ski instructor.
Besides playing in musicals, comedies, and Shakespearean theatre, Rachel also has experience playing a character with Alzheimer’s dementia from the play A Wedding Story, by Bryony Lavery, which she enjoyed very much.
