Miriam is Founder and Managing Director of film production company, GOOD FILMS which she established in 2005, after 20 years of experience in theatre, film, television and radio industries. In 2011, Miriam set up her second entity, GEORGE FILMS as a development counter-part and a ‘little brother’ to GOOD FILMS. She is now in full development on 7 feature films with budgets ranging from $10 million to $40 million. Under Miriam’s lead the companies aim to emulate the US independent model, shying away from more traditional ‘British fare’.
With a background in theatre and radio drama, Miriam joined BBC FILMS in the mid 90’s working closely with film maker John Maybury, on the award winning film LOVE IS THE DEVIL, and Pawel Pawlikowski on his film THE STRANGER. Miriam then moved into serial drama, working on SILENT WITNESS II and then produced the highly successful serial drama EASTENDERS, which under her tenureship won its first BAFTA.
Following this, in 1998 she set up as an independent producer, bringing back to the BBC two long form drama projects: THE PASSION with Gena Mckee and Paul Nicholls and FISH staring Paul McGann.
Miriam’s first film productions were the $20 million adaptation of C. P. Taylor’s GOOD (2008) starring Viggo Mortensen and Jason Isaacs, and the $13 million THE GREAT GHOST RESCUE (2011) directed by the highly acclaimed French director Yann Samuell.
