Chloe May Law

Statement

As an inspiring director and writer, I am developing a portfolio of films with a focus on young female characters who are passionate, talented and kind!

My background in theatre informs my directing for screen, and allows my approach to be actor focused.

During my time at university, I wrote, directed and produced a variety of films, including Support Our Services, HeartThrob and Flawed – production has been paused due to Covid-19.
