About Mu

I'm Mu Lakhi, a recent first-class graduate from the Northern Film School in Leeds. I have a real passion for filmmaking and always have ever since I first set my eyes on the silver screen. Though I am early in my career, I'm proud of my achievements as a director and producer. Last year I wrote, directed and produced a horror short, Shroom Baby, a passion project which went on to find success in the festival circuit winning Best Student Film at the Indie Motion Club, Best Horror at the Paris Film Awards, Gold Award at Fortean Film Festival, among other awards. For my first few year at film school I took a backseat, observing others successes and failures before stepping into the directors chair in my final year. I think what's most important on a film set is ultimately preparation and patience, always working with the ethos that you should expect the best but prepare for the worst. Through doing this I have become a hard working and efficient crew member with a distinct vision and strong work ethic, who always makes an effort to keep cast and crew morale up during shoots. I recently applied the skills i've gained on a social realist short which I produced. I assured throughout that we were always working hard to mitigate any issues we might face, ultimately making them less daunting when faced. After coming back from this shoot, I'm determined to use what i've learnt on more film sets over the rest of this year.
