This week Giles sits down (virtually) with the amazing Lucy Brydon, writer and director of Body of Water a beautifully made female-led drama backed by BBC Films and Film London.

Lucy reveals how she made her start in film whilst teaching in China, getting into short films and production work before starting work on Body of Water which started life as a short film.

We hear about the development process, from pitching the film as a short at festivals, to applying to the Film London development lab before being selected. Giles asks Lucy about her screenwriting process, the many changes the script went through and the importance of staying faithful to the original concept.

Finally, we chat about day to day life on set, working with the BFI and BBC to develop the rough cut and getting a cinema release amid lockdown.
