Literature, folklore, mythology, Jungian analysis, creepy 1980’s kids’ movies, early 00’s internet culture - Charlotte’s work draws on her wide variety of experiences, interests, and fields of study to tell stories that are at once otherworldly and deeply personal and universal.

Charlotte’s work is defined by her imaginative world-building, quirky voice, and aesthetic style. Her work is also set apart by her background as a professional actor, singer, and dancer, giving her a unique perspective on performance and performers, not only allowing her to achieve complex things on set, but helping create a feeling of safety, connection, and value amongst the entire cast and crew, (happy artists are the best artists.) Find out more about Charlotte’s acting work here.

While her stories live primarily in fantastical and hyper-stylized worlds, her main objective is to connect with her audience, and connect her audience with one another on a fundamentally human level through storytelling by rooting her characters and narratives in truth. She believes strongly that storytelling can change hearts and minds, allowing us to understand ourselves and others better, and wants her work to help foster imagination, compassion, and curiosity.

 A woman goes to have a cigarette in her garden as a momentary reprieve from the weight of the grief of the recent loss of her lover, but instead is ferried away by - over hill, over dale, through bush, through briar - never to return. Underhill is currently in post-production and due out in late-2019, early-2020.
