Over the past several years Helen has developed her skills working in various areas of production, eventually establishing herself as an independent filmmaker.

Delicacy (2014), Helen's Macabre WWII short won the 2014 ROYAL TELEVISION SOCIETY North West's Best Student Drama, and Best Cinematography at The US HOLLYWOOD INTERNATIONAL Film Festival 2015. It then went on to tour the UK & US festival circuit, achieving five more awards, and nine nominations; being recognised for direction, performance, and art & design.
ENDS MEAT, the gritty thriller which tells the tale of a taxi driver with a wicked secret, has just premiered as part of Grimmfest 2018, with further screenings to be announced.
Helen earned her First Class BA Honours in Film and TV Production from The Manchester Film School, where she trained in single camera drama.
With a rich passion for narrative stories, Helen is currently developing her first feature screenplay as well as beginning pre-production on 'Ménage à trois', a segment in an anthology of twisted valentines tales.
