Hello! I'm Elkie, I write and direct short films. I have been into filmmaking for four years now and I have written two features and I'm currently writing another. At the moment, I am directing a bunch of comedy sketches and I'm in the post production stages of my latest short film. I also run, Southampton's 48 Hour Film Challenge, each year.

I am single mother and my past life involves working as a burlesque dancer, serving in the Army, boxing in the Army and working in the Ambulance service. Currently, I am a supply teacher and this is what is supporting my filmmaking. I have been to University, I was a bit of a late starter on this due to school misbehaviour. I think myself being a supply teacher is Karma! i am Northern by the way! But currently, I am residing in Southampton.
