Project Description

Documentary following 14-year-old cheerleader and dancer Neisha as she works with disabled choreographer Kate Stanforth to devise an artistic dance video with a one-tonne industrial robot! 

The film combines a compelling human-interest story about how Neisha’s disability has become her strength with first-class choreography. Neisha’s dance is one of triumph and tenderness, inspiring others to find their own strength despite the obstacles that may lie in their way

"Ash is the consummate professional. Not only is his work of a very high standard but his attitude on set is only comparable to his knowledge.


I have worked with Ash on a number of occasions and have always found him to give 100%. He works well with other heads of department and is good at working to schedule.


In pre-production he offers solutions to problems before they have even been mentioned and is always ready to accept alternative suggestions. I wouldn't hesitate to put Ash forward to any production."
