Hello! I'm Charley and I'm a series creator & producer from London. I have co-created several drama projects as a founding partner of COOC Productions and was selected as one of twelve finalists from across the globe to pitch at MIPTV and CANNESERIES 'In Development' Competition 2018. I am a BAFTA Crew participant 2018 and have previously worked for Disney, the FIFA World Cup and Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival.
I have produced award winning & nominated short films receiving official selection at over twenty five film festivals internationally, earning a nomination for the Best Under 25: Producer award at BAFTA recognised Underwire Film Festival 2014.
I am a passionate advocate for females in the media and a big lover of food! I have been lucky enough to couple these interests hosting a Food & Film panel for Hot Docs 2018 Opening Night film 'The Heat: A Kitchen (R)evolution' joined by director Maya Gallus and chefs Anita Lo and Suzanne Barr. I am also author of 'A Woman's Place is in the Kitchen? Gender, Food & Television In The UK' published in Food, Media and Contemporary Culture: The Edible Image (2015, Palgrave Macmillan).
I am a producing graduate of National Film & Television School and BFI Film Academy Craft Skills Residential 2013 and have a first class BA honours degree in Television Production from Bournemouth University. I was also a Youth Jury member for the BFI London Film Festival 2014, panelist and speaker at Screentest Film Festival 2016, BFI Film Academy (London & South West), English and Media Centre’s 2014 Student Conference. I have also written articles for the Huffington Post & Media Magazine.
My bread and butter work in production has allowed me professional experience around the globe and across genre's including children’s television, global sports broadcasting, music videos, shorts, development, live events, film festivals, promos & commercials. I am first aid certified & hold a full, clean UK driving licence. Please visit CV & Credits page for more info.
I would love to connect with other filmmakers/ writers/ crew/ companies/ humans and collaborate on exciting, interesting and varied projects. Drop me a line to get in touch!
