So, now that I've been up and running for a little bit, I thought it would be right to tell you a little bit more about myself...
So... this is me!
My name is Kayleigh, I'm 21 years old and I frickin' love dogs, reading, making films and writing. You could say I'm an all-round very creative person - a jack-of-all-trades, if you will.
My 'ULTIMATE GOAL' is to make films. It's something I've been passionate about for many years now and is something I know I can always grow creatively in - and plus, it's super fun, espcially when you work with an awesome crew like the one I'm a part of. Together, we've already made a two-part mini-series, a smattering of short films, and a few sketches - and we've got so much more to make!
Ever since I was little, I was always writing - that is something I truly know. Even if I didn't know what to write, you would find me copying out chapters from books and writing them back down on a pad of paper - strange I know, but I think my parents were just glad I was occupied when I was little. Now; I write short stories, sagas, screenplays and sketches - there's nothing I don't like to write.
I do believe that my creative mind was highly influenced by films that I watched when I was little - and even though they may not be the best kind of films to raise a 6 year old on, I do believe that they have shaped me into the person I am today. Every weekend when I would go round my Dads house, we would go to Blockbuster (!!!!), rent a film and then go home, have tea and watch the film together. The four films that I have the earliest memory of watching are The Lord of the Rings trilogy (extended edition, of course), The Matrix, The Mummy and Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. Like I said before, probably not the best films to raise a six year old on, but hey-ho, I wouldn't have changed it for the world - they've made me into who I am now.
And of course, like any grown-child of similar age to me, I grew up reading the magical world of Harry Potter. To say that I love Harry Potter would be a serious understatement - I can't even bring myself to watch the films again or even read the books because I know it will just consume my life and I'll be an emotional mess everywhere. You should have seen me when I went to Universal Studios that one time... on second thoughts, maybe not...
I took Drama & Theatre Studies, Media Studies, Film Studies and English Literature all the way through school as much as I could. I was constantly told that I should study subjects that were 'more academic', but they'll be the ones laughing when I'm up there with my friends making kick-ass films.
So, there you have it - a little bit more about me.
