CREATIVE: Scriptwriting

My first script for TV was a Doctors episode, Four Year Itch, for BBC1. This stand-alone story that found the humour in scabies opened the floodgates to a career that has so far notched up 50 episodes of prime time TV, a Soap Award nomination for 'Best Exit' and the opportunity of being part of The Bill’s writing team that won the Writers’ Guild Award for Best Soap/Continuing Drama. While writing for returning series, I have also been developing original ideas and have had work optioned by Rollem, Carnival, GreenAcre, Clifton Scott Productions & Kindle Entertainment to name
a few.
I was selected to take part in a series of THINK, SHOOT DISTRIBUTE workshops run in association with the London Film Festival and wrote and co-directed my first short film, Dancing Alone, in February 2017.
I have recently been selected to take part in a series of masterclasses 'Advanced Writing for TV Drama' run by MediaXchange starting in July 2017.

CREATIVE: Books

Maddie & Anna’s Big Picture, Diva Books, 2002
‘A delicate, witty picture of modern life, containing some great turns of style and gorgeous, classic observations on life. I loved it because it just feels real’
Russell T Davies

‘Girls and girls, girls and boys, boys and boys and - blessed relief - not a stereotype among them. Marlow paints a version of love and lust that
is gratifingly honest in its intraicacies, thoughtful in its language’

Stella Duffy

CREATIVE: Film

My first short, Dancing Alone, co-directed with Nick Swannell, follows a woman’s struggle to face the outside world following her partner’s death. Shot on location in London over five days, the film won Best British Drama and I won Best Actor for my performance as Jennifer at the Discover Film Awards 2017.

Travelogue, Building Bridges, was inspired during a roadtrip from London to Copenhagen as I set out to travel across the awe-inspiring Oresund Bridge. Travelling through France, Belgium, Germany and Denmark to get to Sweden, the importance of bridges became a thought-provoking motif. Currently in post-production, May 2017.

Drumworks is a London charity that uses drumming as a tool to inspire people creatively. I am producing and directing a short film to showcase the charity’s work. In pre-production, due to shoot in July 2017.
