My name is Kim, I am a director from Brighton. I got my BA in Film and Drama in London from Roehampton University and a Distinction with my MA in Film Directing from the University of Edinburgh. Before attaining my MA qualification. I also made a series of short films with the Brighton Filmmakers Coalition, I did well in competitions in this group and then moved towards making something totally independently.
