Working with Nick Broomfield on GHOSTS confirmed Alison's passion for design in film and after designing several low budget features, Alison had the opportunity to design Paul Andrew Williams's suburban thriller CHERRY TREE LANE.  This has led to a number of projects with new and experienced directors and collaborations with Warp Films, Steel Mill, BBC, DNA and Film4.

Designing the BBC3 single drama MURDERED BY MY BOYFRIEND, Alison once again collaborated with acclaimed Director Paul Andrew Williams. This hard-hitting portrayal of domestic violence scooped awards at both RTS and BAFTA, crossed over to BBC1 and became one of the most talked about dramas of 2014.

Recent projects have seen Alison collaborating with both new and established talent, including designing the BBC Original Drama Shorts (2015), with three breakthrough directors, and THE SECRET LIFE OF BOYS, a BBC/ABC Australia co-production helmed by Director Beryl Richards. Collaborating with Beryl once again, Alison has recently designed her innovative short film, FIREWORK, which follows the visually arresting journey of a teenager with special needs entering adulthood.
