Naomi Wright is an award-winning director and co-founder of the film and TV production company Silver Salt Films.
"Packs a punch"
Naomi began her career on the flagship documentary arts series 'The South Bank Show' on ITV and since then has directed and produced factual programmes for Channel 4, ITV1, BBC2 and Sky Arts.
Naomi has also written and directed several short fiction films. 'String' (2006) screened at fourteen international film festivals and won four audience awards and 'Join My Band' (2010) also screened all over the world. She recently completed 'Girl in the Glass' (2018) starring Dominique Tipper (The Expanse).
Her work is visually striking and playful with a bold use of colour. This is grounded by naturalistic and fluid camerawork inspired by her documentary background.
Naomi has a passion for finding hidden stories from history which are burning to be told. She is interested in alternative viewpoints and unusual, arresting characters. She is particularly drawn to stories that show the triumph of the underdog, unusual couplings and coming of age stories.
Naomi is currently developing two feature films, one of which, BLIND AMBITION, is in development with the BFI. Naomi was selected for the 2018 Bird's Eye View Filmonomics Programme and for the BFI Network x BAFTA crew 2019 . She is a member of Cinesisters, WFTV, Directors UK and Raising Films.
