Profile Me


The Sisters Hayes would like to know:


What did you (or do you) want to be when you grow up?
Film and TV Director and Editor

How many siblings do you have and what is your birth order?
2 sisters and I am the youngest

Are you doing what you love with your life? Why or Why not?
I am getting there. I am not a film or tv director or editor yet but I have graduated with a bachelor degree in Film and TV. I also just bought myself a new camera and I have my own editing software so I can start making my own films.

What is your favourite hobby or past time? Is this something you prefer to do alone or with others and why?
I enjoy getting into a really good TV series, like the Sopranos or Girls. I sometimes get into a marathon where I watch episode after episode. I prefer to watch shows with others, especially comedies, so that we can laugh together and discuss the highlights and lowlights of the show.

What is the most embarrassing song on your iPod that you do not want to delete?
Icona Pop – I love it. I don’t know if I’m that embarrassed about it. I never really liked the song at first because it’s really poppy and the lyrics are really silly; about a girl crashing her car into a bridge. Then it was played on an episode of Girls and the song was perfect for the scene so now I love the song so much and love belting out the lyrics in the privacy of my car.

Describe an important place to you. Include things like what season or time of day it is. Also let us know of any important smells or colours you associate with that place.
I love having lunch under the pergola in my backyard in Summer. It’s made of timber so the colours are warm yellows and oranges and it smells of freshly cut grass and flowers from the garden. I love Summer and being able to enjoy a meal outside in the warmth of the sunshine just feels so lovely and like I’m on holidays.

What three things do you ‘feel you need’ to carry with you (other than your phone, wallet or keys)?
I’m a nerd so I always have a usb on me in case I need to do a quick transfer with someone. I also always have bobby pins to tame my wild hair and tampons/pads in case of emergencies.

What fictional character do you most identify with and why?
Sorry to seem obsessed with the TV show Girls but I guess at the moment I feel I identify with the character of Hannah. Like Hannah I am an average middle class, white girl, in my 20’s with many first world problems, one being trying to figure out what do now that I’ve graduated from uni. Hannah wants to be a writer, I want to be a film maker but we both are at that naive point of our lives where we think we just might have enough talent to achieve our goals and maybe we’re not so prepared for rejection. At times I can be selfish and not always likeable like Hannah but I don’t think I’m as self obsessed. Hopefully.

What book OR movie do you enjoy reading/watching over and over again?
hmm there’s a few. One that pops into mind is Vicky Cristina Barcelona. I love Barcelona and I love Penelope Cruz in this movie and I just love this movie.

Describe something you wear that makes you feel confident, happy or powerful.
I feel most comfortable, confident, happy and powerful wearing a good pair of black jeans, my doc martins and a special top that makes the outfit. I like getting dressed up and looking feminine, but I’ve always been a bit of a tomboy so wearing something casual but a bit different is always what I prefer.
