Her short film, Falling Up, which she wrote, directed and starred in, won the Madman Jury Prize 2018 for Best Short Film at New Zealand International Film Festival. The NZIFF jury said: “A film that effortlessly unravels not only the exhaustion and heartache and grief of being a recently-separated young mum, but the mundane joy, the unending love, and the moments of quiet triumph. Falling Up had us laughing one moment and close to tears the next. A masterful, stand-out film in this year’s line-up.” Falling Up is inspired by her break up with her ex-partner and father of her child, Ray Edwards.

Chelsie Preston-Crayford Baby

Chelsie Preston-Crayford has a daughter, Olive, with her ex-partner Ray Edwards. She starred with daughter Olive in Falling Up. Her ex-partner and father to Olive, Ray Edwards, was the cinematographer. The film is about a universal subject: breaking up with a partner, but includes the less talked about aspect of a small child being involved, plus highlights an awkward truth – how difficult and monotonous parenting can be.

She told Stuff: “My mission was to capture the intimacy, intensity and relentlessness of it. We don’t like to show or talk about how hard it is but I don’t think we should feel like bad parents by acknowledging it’s not easy. There is now such pressure to be a perfect parent. The perfect diet. Talk to them in the perfect way. Take them to f…ing jumping beans. There are so many methodologies and so much judgement.”
