Zoe Sailsman-Asghar has written and produced a number of short films. She is also developing feature films and TV projects.

"I have been fortunate to have worked with highly respected individuals and companies within TV and film. From working as Assistant to Producer on BAFTA nominated Sex&Drugs&Rock&roll to Associate Producer on MOTHER (a short film short listed by Film London and starring BAFTA awardee Miriam Margolyes) to Production Accountant on various TV/DVD projects. I have always held a passion to write and to develop ideas for film and TV. Thanks to crowd funding platform indiegogo.com STEAM and LONGING has given an opportunity to transport my scripts onto the screen. I feel I am still honing my skill as a director but I am certain being a writer/producer is where I want to be."
