Rebecca started her career in film during her Masters at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. As part of her degree she financed and staged a play at the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival. This was her first foray into producing. Further to this Rebecca produced a number of theatre plays and worked for a prolific US film producer. Rebecca was passionate about stories - the film medium, collaborating with creatives and understanding the business.
Rebecca started to produce music videos and short films. Her music videos were shown on the main satellite channels and her short films competed in several high profile film festivals including Clermont Ferrand.
Rebecca's first film 'Forget Me Not' was inspired by classic love films. It was a two hander and Rebecca utilised the London backdrop to gain production value for example the film was shot on the London eye. Rebecca won Best Film at the London International Film Festival and the film had it's world premiere at Palm Beach International Film Festival.
