The story behind the film
Inspired by female friendship, the rise of fantastic female writer/actors on screen and conversations with a new friend, I decided to write my own short film during a “dry spell” of acting work for said friend and me to act in! I had no money but luckily did have a group of brilliant, supportive and collaborative filmmakers that I’ve met during my time in acting jobs. So to make the film as feasible as possible to actually make I knew I had to keep the setting to one location and the cast/crew minimal. Combining that with my desire to show women in a natural and authentic way the instant idea was to set it in a bathroom because a whole load of interactions can go down in there!! And so; ‘Hers’ was born.
