Director Biography – Katie Beard, Naomi Turner (WAKE)

Directing duo Katie Beard and Naomi Turner, make up LeMoon; a performance and film collective based between Exeter and London. Katie and Naomi began making work together after graduating from the University of Exeter in 2015, where they both studied a degree in Drama. Initially creating multimedia and physical theatre work they realised their common interest in dance film and later went onto develop ‘WAKE’ – their first short film venture.

In 2019 they were commissioned to make their second short film ‘Scapelands’ by BBC Arts and Arts Council England under the New Creatives scheme. ‘Scapelands’ recently premiered on BBC4 as part of the ‘Dance on Film: BBC Introducing Arts’ anthology.
