Michelle Wheatley Lecturer, Filmmaking

Michelle Wheatley

I have 20 years on-set experience working on feature films, commercials, music videos and BAFTA-winning television productions. 

My short films have screened in UK and international festivals and I am a member of Directors UK. 

My thematic interests centre around a feminist perspective, telling personal, tragic and inspiring narratives. My most recent short film commission is for the charity, The Maggie Oliver Foundation.

During my career, I’ve worked in a number of departments including AD, Art Department, Production and Locations. This has given me a unique understanding of the successful operation of a filming unit
