Great Guns has added director Robin Sheppard to its roster for global representation. After studying film and video to postgraduate level--and winning the Special Jury Award for her grad film The Thin Red Line at the 1993 Cork Film Festival--Sheppard launched straight into the industry to begin directing. Since then, she has been nominated for two BAFTAs--for a Wing and a Prayer and Playing the Field--and won a Grierson Award for Cherished in 2005.
