The Welsh Broadcasting Trust gave me funding four years ago to study screenwriting (my goodness time flies!) Since then, and directly because of that, I wanted to make a documentary. Well, I’m excited to say that I pitched an idea to the BBC and It’s My Shout and I made the film! It’s the first time I have directed anything.
The documentary is about Shirley Walker, the barber in my village. She has cut hair for almost 70 years (and her father in the same room for years before her). The wall is adorned with the generations of men whose hair she has cut. It’s a special place, and I’m fortunate that I got to make the film.
I’m so grateful to you for the opportunity you gave me.
This is the film!:
