Alison Saunders-Franklyn
Writer/Director

Alison Saunders-Franklyn is a Barbadian/Trinidadian who has written and produced corporate and public education television programming over the last twenty years. A graduate of Syracuse University with a Masters in Television Production and the University of the West Indies with an MBA, she is currently in pre-production for her first feature film, Hit For Six! with a view to fulfilling her dream of over a decade – to produce a commercially viable feature film.

In the summer of 2004 Alison wrote, produced and directed a 13-minute film, The Second Innings, in London while she attended a film course at the Metropolitan Film School. This course is run in partnership with the National Film and Television School and Picturehouse Cinemas – the largest art house cinema group in the UK. This drama, which is a prelude to the feature film, was well-received in London at the Clapham Picturehouse Cinema and the African & Caribbean Film Festival in Barbados.

Alison is the founder and managing director of one of the Caribbean’s most successful communications firms and in this capacity she has scripted, produced and directed “edutainment” programmes and public service advertising on a variety of legal, health and social issues for organizations such as UNIFEM, UNICEF, PAHO, CARICOM, the Barbados Government and many more. Most of these productions have been shown throughout the Caribbean.

With a strong background in local theatre, Alison produced one of the most successful local pay-per-view concerts ever shown in Barbados – The Square One 10th Anniversary Concert.

In previous roles as consultant to the West Indies Cricket Board and now the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007, she has produced a variety of public service announcements and mini-documentaries on West Indies cricket. During a decade in public relations with the private sector, Alison has produced an award-winning corporate feature on a regional Shell promotion of Formula One racing and the first regional television series on Caribbean football.

During the eighties, she ended four years with the Barbados Government Information Service in the post of Senior Information Officer (Broadcasting) where she was in charge of radio and television production for the Barbados government and scripted, directed and produced many documentaries. She also hosted a local television talk show called “Legally Speaking” and several regional television discussion programmes.
