Abi trained as an actor and improviser before finding the courage to start writing her own stuff. In 2008, she took a sketch show to the Edinburgh Fringe and started making shorts for her YouTube channel. Her first "proper" short as writer/producer/editor/actor, Blind Date, won rave reviews, two US Audience Awards and got her an agent and a pilot commission from Ch4. Since then, she's developed various projects for TV production companies and is about to direct her first feature film. Her work can be seen on her website
Vintage Blood is my first "proper" short as writer/director (ie. I had a full crew instead of just bringing my mates). l managed to get some excellent actors involved which saves a lot of time on set and definitely elevates the work.
