Where it all began
Jellybaby – (2005) was executive produced under Donella’s old company F-5 Films in sole association with Jemsea Films. “Jellybaby” did the Festival circuit and arrived in the short film corner at the 2005 Cannes Film Festival. This was a joint film venture between actress and director working in a laboratory process workshopping, before the script was shot. This conceptual method of working giving a flow of creativity through experimentation, was the first humble low budget venture into the arena of film to learn more about how low budget film works.
