Hello, I’m Melissa Collins,
I am a filmmaker from Limerick,
I directed my first student short film The Lake, as part of my final year project, it was the best experience of my career so far and was accepted into the LSAD Grad show, I gained so much knowledge and experience while I was making this film working with a great cast and crew, to date i have been writing short movies and recently i have had to change one of them into a radio drama, working remotely with the actors which wasn't a much of a challenge as you would think it would be, they were wonderful to work with and very professional,
I love creating and the process of making stories come to life.
I studied film at Limerick Institute of Technology, where I gained so much knowledge about film, I also gained a lot of hands-on experience directing films and documentaries.
I take inspiration from many great Directors like Jodie Foster, Steven Spielberg, Greta Gerwig, Ridley Scott, Christopher Nolan, and many more.
I believe that to be like the greats you must first study the greats, you will see where I take my inspiration from, I like the characters to tell the story through actions, emotions and words, by showing less means telling more.
