Forever blessed as we have been and are Rebecca came into our lives as we began filming Bedtime Stories in the UK. Her passion for a better world shines through in her films as does her sense of beauty and adventure … which has revealed itself in her unusual and bold move to undertake training on the trapeze!
Originally an actor, Rebecca went on to build up experience in the camera and production departments on a variety of projects. Since setting up Mote of Dust Films, she has made a number of documentaries as a self-shooting director.
She regularly collaborates on short and longer-term projects, including a response to anti-LGBT bullying for the It Gets Better Projects, The Shed with Red Rose Chain and mental health charity Time To Change, and a multimedia theatre project Phone Home with Upstart about identity and communication between refugee families. Rebecca was also DV Director on a series broadcast on ITV1 about the training of guide dogs with Storyvault Films.
Her short documentary Gallopers, follows life on the road with the families behind UK-based Carters Steam Fair, and is to be released shortly.
Whilst a founding member of the residency program at Cucalorus Film Festival in North Carolina, she made feature documentary Something You Can Call Home, which explores the current face of homelessness.
