Miranda draws teaching inspiration from a wide variety of sources including the worlds of photography, science and the visual arts. More about Miranda Harcourt.

“In this case, I brought her on to help the extras be really believable and ingrained in their performances, which is something that film-making often ignores. There is a traditional system that treats them as sheep and means they aren’t properly directed and engaged and I just felt I didn’t want to do that in this film. The extras are very important and the world I was creating was very important to me, so I wanted Miranda to enrich that world by workshopping them and getting them into that space. Also, she’s just a great mate and we sometimes have long conversations about the film and throw ideas around. Miranda’s a great intellectual co-pilot in that way and just a very special person.”– Garth Davis (Director: ‘Lion, ‘Maria Magdalene)
