Directors statement

I wrote this after hearing the struggles some parents/carers go through just to get their children to eat vegetables. I wondered how this struggle would play out if the power were placed in the hands of the child, leaving the parents helpless and vulnerable.
Julie Childs

Julie started out as a stage performer/dancer. From contemporary/modern to jazz and street dance. She then went on to study performing arts, sound recording/producing and lighting and then progressed to the London International Film School in Covent Garden.

She has worked in the camera department on many productions one of which was ‘Spinning Around’ a Kylie Minogue story which aired on TV. She also worked on a production celebrating 100 years of Walt Disney and a documentary in South Africa during the 1994 elections documenting the first time black people could vote!

She now uses her skills acquired in music, dance and film for the storytelling process that directing and film editing needs. Director Statement

I had great fun directing this, a child with more power than their parents can be comical and even with the upper hand, the demands are sized to what is important to a child.
