I’m Helen, a writer, director and DOP based in Melbourne, Australia.
I'm originally from a rainy town in the north of England, but I’ve been residing in the northern suburbs of Melbourne for 10 years, so I feel like I have one foot in each hemisphere!
I started out my career in art department, working on set builds for film and theatre productions.
In 2016, I co-founded Wendyhouse Films production company and began directing and shooting commercial and narrative projects.
In 2021, I released my narrative short film, Stick A Fork In Me, which has gone on to screen at several international festivals and won awards for Best Female Director, Best Short Film and Best Script.
