Vicky Jewson

Vicky Jewson (born 18 September 1985) is an English film director.

She was born in Oxford, where she still lives and where she has long-term plans to establish a film studio.

Her first film 'Lady Godiva' was filmed in Oxford (in place of Coventry) and released in 19 cinemas nationwide on 25th January 2008. Initial reviews were, on the whole, negative. These included those in The Times ("monumentally dreadful"); The Observer ("trite, stilted, embarrassing"); The Guardian ("anodyne"); Time Out ("There’s no getting away from the fact that the film is awful"); Yorkshire Post ("a collection of tired clichés"); Viewlondon ("an embarrassing disaster on almost every level"); Channel 4 ("relentlessly awful"); Filmknitter ("whoever decided to fund this amateurish project deserves to be shot"); and Screenjabber ("I wish everyone involved in this film a short career and a long, painful illness... it's not possible to make a worse film than this"). Even Jewson's local paper, the Oxford Mail, described the film as "weak, confusing and childish".

On 19 May 2008, Jewson organised a charity fund raising event involving 50 women riding as Lady Godiva through London's Hyde Park.
