Lorelei’s interest in film began when they were a young child, growing up with many classic Hollywood films, as well as having a keen interest in foreign cinema. While Lorelei's own writing reflects character-driven sci-fi and drama genres, their tastes in film span across worldwide film movements and identities. Lorelei has been studying media since GCSE level, before focussing more closely on film and specifically screenwriting and film theory at A-Level. Lorelei's degree in Film (BA Hons) allowed them not only to develop more practical filmmaking skills and experience, but also to expand upon knowledge of cinema's theories and critiques. While at present Lorelei is pursuing independent and freelance filmmaking as a writer and director, they hope to return to the world of film academia one day for a Master's Course.
