Writer and director Nichola Tetlow picked up Best Bursary Film at the Exeter Phoenix Two Short Nights Film Festival 2012, with her film Watch Me Dance. It was only her second film, and she’s in preproduction for her third.
We asked her, why film? And this is her reply: “Film combines two of the things I loved most growing up; literature and art.
“In essence, film is very simple; a series of images accompanied by sound, but it is capable of communicating emotions of unlimited complexity. With film you can discover the intricacies of characters, unravel plots, voyage on flights of fancy into dreams, and come to understand something more about yourself.
“All this you get to experience through the beauty and language of a visual medium. At its best, film evokes a cacophony of emotional responses that no other single art form could match.”
