Lewis Gillon

Lewis Gillon

Actor

“Prom Fever” will be my first film I’ve ever worked on, however I’m no stranger to acting as I’ve taken part in numerous plays.
I want to work in film as not only is it my passion, shamelessly it also seems a sweet gig, pretending to be other people for a living and bringing stuff to live doesn’t strike as a job you could complain about. I feel like it would bring a lot more excitement and happiness to myself if I wear lucky enough to be able to do this a career.
I am from the city of Glasgow, which is on the West Coast of Scotland.

Leanne Ivey

Leanne Ivey

Actor

My experience within film has been great and has come with many opportunities, for example within university I had many acting assessments which allowed me to grow & learn as an actor.
So far, my achievements have allowed me to gain a role at National Youth Film Academy. My biggest achievement was submitting my dissertation film into Her International Film Festival (Women in Film) & getting first place for director of my crew & I’s short film. Film holds a big place in my heart, I get so excited to talk about films from ones I’ve seen over & over again to ones I want to see. The process of script to big screen amazes me all the time, whether it’s performing as an actor or sharing creative ideas as a director there’s always something new to learn. While growing up I was inspired by a variety of actors/actresses as well as directors, a few of them being names like Spike Lee, Ava DuVernay, Will Smith, Issa Rae, Jordan Peele, Taraji P. Henson & many more & that’s what make me want to work in film. I come from South London.

Nick Warneford

Nick Warneford

Actor

I previously have performed in a 3 character project for Sunderland university as part of their film making degree titled “Chimera” (you can find it on YouTube).
I want to work in film because, for me, I love to tell stories about people and life and I believe film has the ability to do that and to affect culture. I believe film also has the power to be able to take a person away from their life, for whatever the duration of that film is, and place them somewhere else. It’s also just a lot of fun.
I’m from Newcastle Upon Tyne.

Annabel Harkness

Annabel Harkness

Producer

I was born and raised in Ballymena, Northern Ireland, however it was a trip to London to see the Lion King on Broadway that my life in film and theatre began. I directed a short film through BFI Film Academy in 2020 and have just completed the Cinemagic Film Academy in early 2021. These are the only things in regards to film I have done before the NYFA Set Ready Course. I have had a love for acting for a long time, and my interest in Producing, Directing and Casting has grown drastically over the past couple of years, and the more I do the more I realise how important and influential film and theatre are. I want to be able to tell stories that need to be told, and film gives this opportunity to me.
