Laura Harvey, Studied MA at Edinburgh University and graduate of Bournemouth University with a BA in Scriptwriting for TV and Film. Laura primarily works behind the scenes occasionally stepping in front of the camera believing it benefits future scriptwriting and directing projects to understand what is expected of an actor, and also because it’s a lot of fun.
Laura started her own film and photography media company in 2007
Creative3g Media. Working both locally and around the world Laura’s portfolio includes working for a film agency in New Zealand and filming P&O’s new Fly-Med advert around the Mediterranean on board the cruise ship Ventura. A short film Laura wrote and directed ‘The Decision Maker’ highlighting the treatment of the sick and disabled by ATOS gained over 2,000 views within 48hrs when released through social media. Laura has also written 2 festival award winning scripts and is currently writing and directing a new web series ‘With the Spirit of Audrey’ which begins filming soon.
In 2010 Laura performed a successful one woman show entitled “Kia Kaha Wahine’ (meaning ‘be strong women’ in Maori) based upon her book of the same title. Kia Kaha Wahine is a moving, inspirational and often very funny book based around her own experiences with Ovarian Cancer. Supported by Macmillan Cancer and local cancer charities Kia Kaha Wahine is due to be re-published via Amazon and Kindle later on this year.
Laura’s vision and passion is to portray and develop inspirational and positive female characters within her work and projects whilst offering opportunities for women within media to work in an encouraging and fun environment. The cast and crew of the web series ‘With the Spirit of Audrey’ is 90% female.
Laura took behind the scenes and promotional photography for Abjection, with some of the images being used in the eye-catching Abjection poster.
Laura likes to support fellow BU media students, helping anyway she can with production photography and headshots. She can be contacted on firstname.lastname@example.org
