Director Biography - Cheilin Leigh Wagner

She was born and raised in Cape Town. Her love and passion for writing stemmed from the young age of 10 years old. Her very first interest grew from where her writing journey began with song lyrics; until lyrics morphed into poetry and short novels. Cheilin always perceived that she would pursue a career within the creative field, but was bitten by the film bug towards the end of her final year of high school where she attended the open day of AFDA. There, she was fondly enlightened with the art of directing and was enchanted that her words could be brought to life.
