Director Biography - Louise C Galizia

Louise is a filmmaker and fine artist based in London, UK, where she is currently developing various short and feature films. Over the past ten years Louise has explored the disciplines of film and fine art, using one to inform and inspire the other, giving her work a unique voice:

“It's not just about coverage, or conveying what you see in front of you - it's about uncovering what’s below the surface - the emotion, tone and meaning of a moment. I want people to have a response to the story or painting: to feel the temperature of the night air as they walk through a landscape; to question what a person is feeling as they sit ...; to feel the sadness, love or joy that those characters are experiencing as we watch their story unfold."

Through her work, Louise attempts to bring the creative process she uses in her art into her film practice, focusing on research, understanding, questioning. Sometimes this leads her to darker places, but only because the story and characters take her there. She works closely with writers and loves the collaborative and trusting nature of a director - writer relationship. She strives to bring out the best of the story while ensuring the audience take an active role in its revelation, whether its through the play in genre or through story, the audience are always required to question, challenge and interpret the film.

In the past ten years she has grown and developed as an artist and filmmaker, finding her own voice while preparing for the next stage in her creative journey. In 2018 she decided to challenge herself by making a #oneshortfilmamonth series. Working with an assortment of writers, DOP’s, Actors, editors and Sound designers every month, she was able to produce 2-3 min microshorts that were released onto social media. It allowed her to challenge herself, build lasting collaborative relationships, master film as a medium and gain a sounder knowledge of the process of filmmaking. As a member of Cinesisters, and Directors UK, she has been shortlisted for Eastenders Emerging Directors Scheme, chosen as a Mentee for the Directors UK Inspire 2020/21 mentoring scheme, and continues to explore every avenue to further her career and achieve her final goal - Directing for feature film and high end TV.
