Shelley’s Story

Sgil Cymru welcomed trainee Shelley Rees amongst its 2019 Stepping Up cohort.

Shelley is a successful actor and director who has worked across film, television, stage and radio. Keeping Faith, 35 Diwrnod, Casualty and Gwaith Cartref are among her many credits.

“Having acquired a variety of skills during my acting and directing career, I was keen to see whether I could use the same skills in other areas within the industry. Taking part in the Production Coordinator course and learning how to use Movie Magic was an important part of this process and will enable me to take my career in a different direction in the future. 

The opportunity to be part of Stepping Up has opened my eyes to a range of possibilities and career paths that I hadn’t previously considered”.
