16-year-old Brighton director Elliott Hasler’s latest film, Charlie’s Letters, is at Brighton Fringe, and will go to the Edinburgh and Dieppe festivals later this year.

What is your favourite place in Sussex?

Cuckmere Haven has to be my favourite. it’s just an amazing place.

What do you love most about Sussex?

I love the fact that in Sussex you’ve got the sea and the countryside on your doorstep and now we have also got a premier league football team!

What advice do you have for your 12-year-old self?

The advice I’d give to my 12-year-old self would probably be to just try everything and take every opportunity that comes my way.

What is your most valued possession?

My camera!

What is your biggest regret?

As of yet, I’m lucky enough to say that I haven’t really got any regrets.

What is your biggest fear?

I don’t have a lot of fears.

What is your proudest achievement?

My proudest achievement would have to be my film which is currently showing as part of the Brighton Fringe. It has been an amazing three years making it and I think all the hard work has paid off.

Which five people (living or dead) would you invite to your fantasy dinner party?

I’d invite Clint Eastwood, my great-grandfather Charlie Standing, my great-grandmother Ivy ‘Tup’ Standing, Steven Spielberg and Johnny Depp.

Anything Else?

Due to the great reception I’ve had for my film, Charlie’s Letters, we’ve had to put on an extra three showings, so I’d be honoured if more people from the local area could come and see it. It’s a true Brighton story.
