Simon Lord

Who: Simon’s debut feature Jellyfish had its World Premiere at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival, and was released theatrically in the UK and is available on Amazon Prime in the U.S. 

Hardest Scene to Write:Some of the scenes on Jellyfish were very challenging in terms of their content, and the film as a whole was made for very little money so it was all hands on deck. There was a scene where the protagonist performs stand-up comedy, which we were up rewriting until midnight the night before. It was difficult because it couldn’t be good standup, it had to feel like a first gig, and it had to be in the character’s voice and drawn from her life, so it was a real balancing act, and we were exhausted, unpaid and up against it.”
