Catherine Williams, Script writer/editor, Series Creator

She has an impressive list of multi award-winning, top-rated and much loved credits, including Chip and Potato (Netflix), Waffle the Wonder Dog, Topsy+Tim, and the New Teletubbies (all on Cbeebies), Pocoyo, PJ Masks, and most recently, Lovely Little Farm (Apple TV).
Christina Pickworth, Agent, Imagine Talent
Christina is an agent for writers and directors at a small, bespoke agency Imagine Talent, with a list that focuses on emerging talent and female voices. Christina has written feature films, consulted for production companies and financiers, and freelanced at United Agents, as well as spending several years working in film development finance for a fund that invested in 300 British film projects over three years.
