Director Statement

I developed the script for One in 5 through a series of weekend workshops in consultation with the principal cast of emerging actors with disabilities and project partner, Rozelle Neighbourhood Centre (RNC). RNC Project Producer, Susan Johnston and Principal Cast Drama Coach, Caroline Downs consulted on the script throughout the workshop and development stage. The life experience of a number of the main cast helped inform the story. This was a truly wonderful project to be involved in. I was honoured to work with the actors, and integrate their stories and perspectives into the fabric of the film.
