'From a young age I was very interested if not slightly obsessed with photography, film and music. I also watched a huge amount of tv as a child so it is probably no mistake that I ended up actually working in the media...'
'I’ve worked as a Producer across all film and digital formats, on location, from the air, in studios, up (and down) mountains, on water, underground and very recently a produced a world first in virtual production. I’ve developed a significant amount of technical and creative expertise working globally across live action, practical and visual special effects, multi-format, with actors, celebrities, cars, food, fashion, live music, stunts, children, animals, the public, large cast, even larger crew and comprehensive post-production although thankfully not all of those at the same time although nearly!'
'I cut my teeth on music video and documentary. I then graduated into commercials and film. I'm not quite sure exactly how The Rockmother became a nickname - I think it was when I was working and pregnant and probably a bit forthright as a result. Whatever happened it stuck'.
Recent work includes producing music film Brown Skin Girl/Black Is King for Beyoncé for which Astrid won a Grammy
