Claire is of British-Persian heritage and comes from a family of film makers so film making is in her blood. She started her career in broadcasting at MTV, Nickelodeon and most recently BBC Creative. As an eternal day dreamer she has been lucky enough to bring her playful, stylistic ideas to TV screens full of charm and wonder, winning two BAFTAS and numerous awards along the way. Her experimental style, seamlessly blends VFX and film and bends into many genres, from kids to sport, drama to comedy.
She made her first short film, Take Me, a couple of years ago whilst on maternity
leave which was officially selected at Norwich Film Festival and LIFF and now wants to tell more dark comedies and take the viewer on a visceral journey full of character and nuances. She is currently in pre production on a short charity film with The Media Trust.
