Wright’s interest in directing springs from her experiences as an actor. From 2001 to 2011, she played Ginny Weasley in all eight films in the Harry Potter series. Her directorial debut, Separate We Com, Separate We Go (2012) featured David Thewlis and premiered at the Cannes Film Festival.
Two music videos followed; Dreaming with Sophie Lowe which premiered on Nowness, and Sea Ess with George Schuster. A subsequent documentary short, Fade To Gold , created a narrative around the craftsmanship of her parents, jewellers Wright & Teague. Her second short film, Know Thyself, develops Wright’s fascination with landscape and feeling, once more in a script she wrote herself.
Wright is currently in post production for her short film Medusa’s Ankles an adaptation of Booker prize winning author A S Byatt’s short story. The film stars Kerry Fox, Jason Isaacs and Chanel Cresswell.
In addition, Wright is currently developing two very different series of works. One titled SEXTANT that will be made up of twelve short films. Each film is shot under a full moon. The first of the series staring Erin Moriarty premiered on Nowness in August. The second titled Phone Calls a web series set in New York exploring the way people speak to each other. Free of physical proximity, a space is born in which personal truths and, often time, ugliness is unleashed. The series will premiere as part of the N.O.W. program at Tribeca Film Festival 2017.
