It’s possible Anne-Cecile Ville brushed past Lucy Hay during the London Screenwriters’ Festival last year, where Lucy’s one of the event organisers and the Head Reader for the contests and other initiatives. Even if they haven’t met, I sense a similar determination emanating from Lucy, an energetic and outspoken woman who also lives in the UK. Lucy generously found some time in her busy schedule to speak to me on Skype about her experiences working in the UK film industry.
Whatever you do, do it well.
The ‘V’ must stand for vivacious
Lucy, who also goes by the moniker Bang2Write, is passionate about writing, her children and being true to herself and her blog readers. She has her hands and voice in a variety of projects, from being a non-fiction writer (e.g. Writing And Selling Drama Screenplays), novelist (e.g. The Decision: Jasmine’s Story), speaker, blogger, producer, script editor, Head Reader for the London Screenwriters’ Festival…and many other roles. Suffice it to say she’s organised and disciplined. As the mother of three young children, two girls and a boy, she’s teaching them a strong work ethic that’ll ensure their own success when they grow up. She’s also a mentor and outspoken advocate about gender politics and feminism.
