Linda has written and directed four short films and a range of promotional videos. Two of her shorts have screened at festivals in New Zealand and overseas. Her co-written feature film Second-Hand Wedding was a breakout success in New Zealand making it into the Top 10 New Zealand films at the box office. Her eye (and ear) for detail, visual style and elegance, and witty juxtaposition and emotional metaphor is evident in her writing and directing. She has published two collections of short stories and her writing has been broadcast and widely anthologised.
Her recent work focuses on female protagonists and New Zealand feature Poppy is one such story. Written and directed by Linda, produced by Robin Laing and Alex Cole-Baker and supported by NZFC’s 125 Fund set up in 2018 to celebrate 125 years of Women’s Suffrage, TVNZ, NZ On Air, IHC Foundation and private philanthropic funders,
is now in post-production.
