ABOUT ME

My name’s Celeste. I am a children’s and youth filmmaker and the founder and creative director of Pennyfarthing Pictures Inc.  Working in children’s media and entertainment has always been my dream. My vivid imagination and a creative outlook on the world has helped me develop a colourful and unique style which distinguishes my filmmaking. I have written, directed and designed two independently produced children’s shorts: Paper Princes, Gypsies, and the Boy With No Return Address (2009) and The Intergalactic Space Adventures of Cleo and Anouk (2012). Both films played at numerous international film festivals across the globe. In 2013, I also wrote,

November 10th 2014, Celeste won the Reel Asian International Film Festival’s ‘So You Think You Can Pitch – Emerging Filmmaker’ prize and will be shooting her new short, The Ghost of Grandpa Tong, early 2015!!
