Popular British model and film actress, Amy Jackson has turned producer for the first time. The actress will be producing a short film along with her friend. The film, which will be shot soon, is based on the cruelty done to animals, and seeks to create awareness on the same.
She even plans to launch the film on social media and thereafter send it to film festivals.

Talking about it, Amy added, “We will shoot for the film soon. I will also be a part of it, though I won’t act in the film. I will be speaking about my experience of making the movie. It will have a few real stories. I believe that cruelty to animals is a serious issue and it’s important that it’s discussed more.”
Amy shares a ‘life-changing’ article that made her aware about cruelty towards animals. “A 5-year-old female cross-breed dog in Malta named Star made international headlines in 2011. She had been found by Animal Welfare Department officers, shot at point-blank range and buried alive after being covered with cardboard and a tree trunk. She died later.” The actress felt strongly about the incident and decided to do something about it with the short film.
