Amy is an award-winning film and television director. Her directing style is intensely visual and she loves the collaborative process of bringing a script from page to screen. She relishes the challenge of staging a complicated stunt sequence as much as eliciting powerful, nuanced performances from her actors.

Amy directed all three one-hour episodes of BBC 1 Drama THE CONTROL ROOM (‘Terrific performances...feels like an unexpected treat’ The Guardian) for Hartswood Films. Previous credits include two episodes of HANNA (Season 1) for Working Title/Amazon and the Season 1 finale of BBC1 thriller TRUST ME (Red Productions) with Jodie Whittaker.

Amy started her career working on films in Tokyo, while studying film and Japanese on a Monbusho scholarship at Nihon University. Her early film work received multiple awards, including the prestigious Katrin Cartlidge Foundation Award and both BAFTA and BIFA nominations. Her short film CAN’T STOP BREATHING was described by Alan Rickman as ‘a twelve-minute masterclass’.

Amy also writes and has a psychological horror film with Essential Cinema in advanced development with the BFI, which will be shooting in 2024.

Amy is represented in the UK by United Agents and in the US by CAA. She is a member of BAFTA and Directors UK.
