I produced and script edited The Birth of Venus for BBC iPlayer.
Written by the bestselling, award-winning YA novelist, Juno Dawson, The Birth of Venus shows a young person on the brink of their future.
Venus finds joy and comfort in the safe space of their bedroom, where they dream of launching a make-up brand and escaping the Banter Chat lads from school. Venus hopes the city beckons – a place where they can just be who they are. But first, Venus has to escape from the people in their life who don’t have good intentions towards them…
The Birth of Venus was produced in lockdown, when most of the UK production industry stopped working. It was made using entirely remote production methods and staffed from female and/or black, asian or minority ethnic and/or LGBTQI crew.
Starring Matt Greenwood
Directed by Theresa Varga
The Birth of Venus will publish to BBC iPlayer in late 2020
