I'm Sherill Turner – a British Actress, Writer, Filmmaker and Voice Over Artist, working in the UK and US ... that all sounds much more glamorous than it is!
This year, I've been working on a one woman show, Her Downstairs, a comedy about fibroids! Her Downstairs premiered in NYC at United Solo, the world's largest solo theatre festival, in November 2019 and won the award for Best Premiere.
Her Downstairs is directed by Joanna Simmons.
In 2017, I co-founded It's a Funny Life Films with Louise Ann Munro with the goal of creating quirky stories with heart. We shot our first two comedy short films, Mind F*#k and Mumatar. Both films are playing in film festivals and, I'm happy to say, have won several awards. In 2018, I was delightfully surprised and very honoured to be nominated for the IMDb New Filmmaker Award for directing Mind F*#k. Check out funnylifefilms.com for a screening near you!
I've recently completed directing my second comedy short, The General, which is just beginning its festival run. The General is also Episode One of Suitors, an anthology web series by Tristan Ofield, which is currently in production.
I'm always interested in collaborating to tell a story, so please get in touch.
