Miranda is a director working in television drama with a portfolio of award winning short films.
Miranda has most recently directed a block of five episodes of Hollyoaks for Lime Pictures. She enjoyed getting to add to the body count of the soap with the highest death rate in the UK as well as working with actors ranging from those who have been there since day one to those for whom it was their first day!
Just before that Miranda directed two episodes of Casualty for the BBC, where she got to set fire to someone, nearly crash a train and shoot on a houseboat all within very strict COVID restrictions!
She has also directed a block of BBC detective drama Shakespeare and Hathaway on location in Stratford-upon-Avon and she was a returning director on flagship daytime drama Doctors - after gaining a place on the coveted BBC New Directors Scheme a couple of years ago.
Miranda's award winning short films explore a range of social issues, from homelessness to the impact of porn on teenagers. Her latest short Evie, which she also wrote, forms the pilot for a near-future TV series that's in development and premiered at Encounters Film Festival.
Miranda attended the Berlinale Talent Lab as a writer/director and has been selected as a writer/director for the BFI Network x BAFTA Crew Programme. Always looking for ways to learn and to develop her skills Miranda has shadowed directors SJ Clarkson, Patrick Harkins, Mike Newell and, through the Directors UK Inspire Scheme, Euros Lyn. Miranda is an active member of Directors UK and sits on their Access and Inclusion Committee.
Academically, Miranda has a MA (2.1 Hons) in Social and Political Sciences from Cambridge University where she received a scholarship for her studies. She also has an MA with Merit in Directing for Film and TV from the University of Westminster, for which she was awarded a full academic scholarship.
