Shirley Day
Wirter / Director / Producer

I joined Create50 in 2015. I have reviewed 55 projects.

I write and direct for independent film and theatre. I've also had short stories on BBC Radio 4 and shortlisted for Granta. My novel - the insect house was on the shortlist for the Bath Novel Award this year.

Films that Inspired Me

I love Tim Burton's big fish, because it's all about storytelling. I love Baz Lurhman's Romeo and Juliet, because of the visuals and the clever interpretation. I enjoyed the Theory of Everything, and think the script is beutifuly written. Ghost and Horror stories it would be "The Other's" or maybe "Pan's Labyrinth" and of course "Angel Heart."
