Hi there! I am Becky Sharpe, a filmmaker and photographer. I went to film school at Central St Martins after studying Fine Art and English Lit at Exeter University, and then I trained on BBC material working in a Soho cutting room.
I made fine art dance films in my early career and won awards and festival distribution with the experimental 16mm film “Numb” and "Valentino". This led to the creation of video installations (Arts Council Hub Club/Eastern Arts), interactive drama for cable TV (Videotron), and a series of short documentaries in Uganda, East Africa for Associated Press Television.
Following a Masters in Screenwriting I was approached by Hybrid Films to be their Head of Development, where I developed the existing feature drama slate and discovered new talent; financing projects through British Screen, the European Script Fund, and EC's Media II.
After relocating to Spain to raise my son, I found time to write screenplays and script edit (working with Julie Baines at Dan Films, Sam Taylor at F&ME, Cushty Films UK, Virtual Content UK, and Robert Jones at the British Film Council). Whilst living in Spain, I made short dance films in spanish and english, directed and produced for television, and worked as a photographer, returning recently to live in London after twelve years in Malaga.
I am currently preparing a feature film to go into production, as well as working at production company The Charlie Network, where I direct and produce commercial films, music videos and brand content.
Recent work includes a dance film that showed at The Tate Gallery, a title sequence for a Channel 4 series, a documentary about Notting Hill Carnival, a chat show series for Facebook Live, and a short film about falling in love with a narcissist.
My current focus is on the slate of drama projects on this website, and working with actors during the development process.
