7 episodes of Celia filmed plus stage performances!


Filming Celia

Rachel Cochrane has written a series of short films which together tell the bitter sweet story of middle-aged housewife Celia.  It was Rachel’s aim to produce Celia independently & take it out to an appreciative audience online.  With that in mind she enlisted the help of Digital media specialist Shirley Anne Wood & actor Penny Lamport and together over a couple of years they had a rollercoaster journey & lots of fun filming 7 episodes of Celia on a near zero budget, with Celia performing her story as a monologue to camera.

The Celia series of short films has now been released.  Click on the links below to enjoy them
