Choreographer James Berkery
Directed by Marco Alessi, toni_with_an_i is an upbeat coming of age drama about fourteen year-old oddball, Toni, who is relentlessly bullied at school. One day, the internet, and a passion for performance save her when a video of her dancing goes viral.
Berkery, who previously worked alongside Scottish rock band The Fratelli's, worked closely with lead actress, Madeline Holliday, to choreograph all of the film’s dance sequences.
toni_with_an_i will be screened on BBC Four on Sunday at 10pm. It was commissioned by the BFI and BBC.
