As a filmmaker and photographer Joelle endeavours to make visually engaging and thought provoking work.
Film: Having had the opportunity to work with a diverse and international range of choreographers and companies she strives to create films that go beyond documentation to deliver a cinematic perspective on stage, studio and site-specific dance.
Having originally trained as a dancer and choreographer she has found this knowledge of movement enables her to film in a way that intimately immerses the viewer within the frame.
Joelle has always had a fascination with film and began exploring this whilst training at the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, collaborating on short films with fellow students and choreographing and directing a site-specific dance film with A-level students during a teaching placement.
She then took a Filmmaking Foundation at The London Film Academy and began teaching at Fitzrovia Youth in Action leading filmmaking and journalism workshops on events and subjects chosen by the young people.
She have been fortunate enough to regularly collaborate with choreographers and companies such as Sally Marie- Sweetshop Revolution, Marie Ronold Mathisen, NKM media and Elisabeth Connor as well as working with organisations such as London Dance.
Joelle initially took an A level in Photography and has worked as a stills photographer on film sets and theatres along with commissions for choreographers and musicians. See gallery below.
