Amelia joined the industry in the first wave of self-shooting directors and was not long after named one of the industry’s top 10 directors by Broadcast “unafraid to tackle head on difficult and challenging subjects ... (with) a brilliantly populist eye.”
She has since worked as an Executive Producer across a wide range of leading indies in both production and development and she often consults on new formats and programmes for broadcasters. In 2013 she joined global Israeli media group Keshet International as Creative Director/Head of Unscripted. In 2016 Amelia founded Honey, quickly securing both development funding and commissions. Honey celebrated its first birthday with its first delivery: The Knowledge: The World’s Toughest Taxi Test a rig based documentary for 9pm Channel 4 which landed #1Twitter and pick of the day across the press: "Riveting" "A real must- see" The Times.
She regularly enjoys collaborating with writers, and has written and directed two of her own award winning short films starring the wonderful Celia Imrie, Hattie Morahan, Melanie Gutteridge amongst others and continues to direct and shoot on selected projects.
Amelia is a post graduate anthropologist, for her graduation film she embedded with French terrorists and in 2003 she moved to Afghanistan to set up a film school for Afghan women with whom she travelled the country documenting the first UN sanctioned democratic elections.
