London based since 2010, she has directed and produced a range of corporates, commercials and promotional short films for the National Portrait Gallery and Sony amongst others, as well as four fiction short films.
Her short film COLLEGE ROMANCE - THE MUSICAL and her follow up MANNEQUINS screened at festivals in the UK and internationally and brought Isabelle several award nominations and wins.
