FILMMAKER & FOUNDER
"Flavia delivered a brilliantly original lesson which involved live readings of a film scene, giving students different roles to portray and fomenting learning by practising. It was a clear and dynamic lesson, showing us how writing translates to film and teaching us to think practically. Our Creative Writing students loved her workshop!"
