D'Marie Dowe is an emerging writer/director. She started her filmmaking career by completing an MA in screenwriting at LCC. Before working as a filmmaker D'Marie had a career in the social care field working with children, young people and families, as part of a multi - agency team of public servants; she draws from her experiences to enhance the authenticity of the story-worlds she creates.
She has recently, penned and, made her director debut on the upcoming short film 'Say Nothing'. D'Marie spent 5 years as a script judge for a British LondonFilm Festival; a great deal of selected writers obtained agents and received broadcast commissions soon after.
D'Marie has recently collaborated with award winning filmmakers Mo Ali, and Darcia Martin, on their solo projects (in a scriptwriting capacity).
D'Marie fully understands the mechanics of good storytelling and she has a firm grasp of the market place; she takes notes exceptionally well, she’s extremely professional in her approach to her work, and she is a 'glass half full' type of gal. D'Marie's outgoing personality has amassed her a large amount of industry peers who she can call on from time to time on her filmmaking journey. D'Marie was recommended for the BBC New Voices Initiative by Lime Productions, her pilot children's script 'My teacher the Warlock' was submitted and successfully secured her a place; D'Marie has been asked to have a follow up meeting with the BBC's Writersroom.
