The British husband and wife team had previously both been actors. Most notably Hannah in Mike Leigh's Academy Award nominated “Secrets & Lies” and David in Channel 5's “Menace” alongside Stephen Moyer of “True Blood” and the West End hit, “A Passionate Woman”.
Their first feature, which they co-wrote produced and directed was “Mothers & Daughters” starring this year’s multiple BAFTA nominee, Miranda Hart. "Great performances, good pacing and sharp script" said VARIETY. Hannah and David were nominated for The Golden Hitchcock Award for Direction. “Mothers & Daughters” was invited to film festivals worldwide debuting at Cannes then playing Montreal World Film Festival where Indiewire wrote that it was the "highlight of the festival". Other festivals included: Sao Paulo; Barcelona; Chicago; The Hamptons and the Festival Du Films Brittanique - the prestigious Film Festival in Dinard, France that picks only six of the best British films of the year. Mothers & Daughters is available on DVD in the UK and is being released theatrically this year by Indican Pictures under the title: “Lovers & Other Problems".
Their second feature film, “The Understudy” was chosen to close the Gotham Film Festival, received a Silver Lei from Honolulu International Film Festival and was winner of Best Original Score from the Composers Union of France, a particularly thrilling award as the composer, Carl Davis, is Hannah's Dad. In March 2012, Indican Pictures released “The Understudy” in Los Angeles, NYC, Seattle, Chicago, and Philadelphia.
David and Hannah also co- produce, write and direct (and David hosts) the spoof news show, “Hindsight News”.
As a comedian, David has performed all over the British Isles (including London’s West End at the Comedy Theatre) and many parts of Europe. In the US he is often seen in the Friday night show in The Main Room at The Comedy Store on Sunset Strip, Los Angeles and has appeared at Stand Up NY in New York City, Zanies in Chicago, Flappers in Burbank, The Casablanca Resort and Casino in Mesquite, The Ice House in Pasadena and recently competed in the World Series of Comedy in Las Vegas. David was also the MC at the World Marbles Competition.
