WHAT PEOPLE SAY

Working with Joyce Porter is a revelation. I first met Joyce when she auditioned for the role of 'Erla' in my short film Bat. She came prepared with an appropriate monologue which I remember enjoying very much. However, what most impressed me about Joyce at the audition was her ability to take direction. The adjustments she made to her delivery and her emotive state were perfect which is why I cast her. On set, she was wonderful to work with. She was able to assimilate blocking and direction quickly. She gave a fabulous, funny and nuanced performance. Joyce's performance of 'Erla' in Bat is a highlight of the film.
