Whilst studying, Rebecca sidelined as a transcriber and worked freelance within the Art Department on short and feature films across the North East of England including the BAFTA-nominated feature ‘I Am Nasrine’, short dramas for RSA Films and Third Films and two national TV commercials for a government campaign.
London called with a position at the London Film Academy, followed by a foray into television with Talkback TV, then a role as Script Reader and Development Assistant at Rooks Nest Entertainment.
Across this time Rebecca continued to work on original screenplays and co-written projects and in July 2017, travelled to Malaysia for the premiere of her first feature film as co-writer of ‘Hijabsta Ballet’, directed by Syed Zul Tojo.
Syed is now Rebecca’s agent in Malaysia, whilst she continues to work on her own feature scripts (in addition to scripting short corporate projects) with Suzanne Pradel representing her for the U.K. Europe and U.S.A.
