Marshall Street Editors' John Mayes Works With Award-Winning Director Sarah Clift
Marshall Street Editors' John Mayes has teamed up with independent director Sarah Clift once again on the production of her latest short ‘The Birth of Valerie Venus’, a BFI Network backed film, co-funded by Madrefoca. Written and directed by Sarah, the film stars Jane Guernier and Paul Hunter.
Sarah, who has recently picked up both a Gold and Silver award for the film at the Young Director Awards (YDA) says: “I was thrilled the team at MSE agreed to collaborate on my new short film. John Mayes is a remarkable talent to work with on narrative projects. He nurtures performances whilst crafting details and nuances to create impeccable comic timing. A huge thank you to John and the team.”
John Mayes last worked with Sarah on her internationally acclaimed film ‘La Madre Buena’ (The Good Mother), a story about a Mexican mother torn between her politics and her son's request to have a Donald Trump piñata for his birthday party.
