"Martha is a future mega producer. She has huge energy and commitment to the work, eclectic and exciting taste, razor sharp development notes, a growing network and is calm under pressure. She deserves to be recognised for all her efforts behind the scenes to get new writers and directors seen and heard."
Georgia Goggin (Co-producer on Canvas 5)
