Deborah Espect

I am an award-winning filmmaker, currently residing in Brighton, UK. My short films have been shown in festivals in West Hollywood, Cannes, Brighton and London and my plays have been performed in leading Fringe theatres in London, where they received critical acclaim. My web series As We Are is available on YouTube and has been selected for 12 international festivals and has won many awards, including Best Web Series in Los Angeles and New York. I am currently working on my first music video, which will be released in Summer 2018.
