Christine is a designer/writer/director living in East London. Hailing from Birmingham, her early days were spent dragging junk from the street to make ‘gifts’ for unsuspecting family members. Not much has changed, except now sometimes people pay her to make things (but sadly her dad isn’t on hand to assist anymore).
Since graduating from the Royal College of Art she has had her films screened at over 80 film festivals internationally such as Annecy, Atlanta and Aesthetica, broadcast on Channel 4, Skyarts and German Television, featured everywhere from Shots, Grafik, to Short of the Week, and accruing multiple awards including the Lumen Prize, Terence Conran Foundation Award and a British Animation Award nomination. Her script writing has been long listed for the BAFTA Rocliffe Comedy New Writing Award.
She has extensive experience in pitching and script development across television, advertising and film, working for companies such as Passion Pictures, 2AM, Blink Industries, Blinkink, Blink, Canada, and one-to-one with feature writer/directors including Sir Lenny Henry and Ross Clarke.
She also works regularly with clients to design branding or create colourful animations.
In 2018 Christine opened an online shop called Yas Queen!, selling an array of colourful drag and feminist related goods across the globe, and is set to expand the business this year having been accepted to the RCAInnovation Scheme.
