Film, TV & Theatre
Amy’s bold poetic visual style, astute eye for detail and sensitivity to story have brought her both personal praise and critical acclaim.
Amy started her career working on films in Tokyo, while studying film and Japanese at Nihon University. Her early film work received multiple awards, including BAFTA and BIFA nominations and a Scottish BAFTA win for her first film, CAN’T STOP BREATHING, which was described by Alan Rickman as a ‘twelve minute masterclass.’ Further shorts include ICICLE MELT, with Greta Scacchi in Sweden, and THE CHILD, an adaptation of the short story by Ali Smith.
Amy also directs TV drama, with credits that include HANNA for Working Title Television /Amazon, the finale of BBC thriller TRUST ME with Jodie Whittaker, and the horror series BEDLAM for Sky
Amy is currently developing her first feature film, a ghost story set in Northumbria called AFTER MARTHA, with funding from Creative England. It is being produced by Juliet Dowling, alongside Executive Producer, Kevin Loader (THE DEATH OF STALIN, WUTHERING HEIGHTS).
