Lynne Payne - Company Director, Creative Producer & Performer

Lynne grew up in the North West seaside town of Blackpool and studied Theatre at Lancaster University.

She has worked in a range of jobs throughout the film and theatre industry, from casting to location scouting, performance roles and post-production roles, each designed to give her a full insight into the industry and to empathise with and understand what each role entails.

She began her career as a Professional Dance Artist working for over 15 years with companies such as Ludus Dance & Birmingham DanceXchange, and in a variety of settings throughout the North West and the Midlands. 

In 2005, she co-founded the new-writing production company "Random Productions", performing in and producing small to mid-scale theatre productions which, over several years, toured nationally, to great acclaim. Later re-branded Rotten Park Road, she produced her first short film Acting Grown Up in 2011. Later that year she found herself producing a second short - The Commission, a dance-based film commissioned by leading contemporary figurative painter John Wonnacott, CBE. The film was shot and exhibited in Agnew's Gallery, London, to feature alongside John's solo exhibition A Tale of Two Houses

She has since produced numerous stage, independent film and comedy projects, including A Proper Victorian Christmas, (2022) a full-length film based on a livestream performance, the darkly comic horror independent feature film Happy Little Bunnies (2021), the independent feature film How Not To Work and Claim Benefits, (2017), the documentary How to Make a Film For Nothing, the darkly comic short film Operation Perfect Teaset presents Naughty Naughty, and Friday the 14th: The Legend of Camp Aztitz: Part 3D, a digital stage project.

Branching out from her work as a Creative Producer, Lynne continues to work as a performer and is the Director of Rotten Park Road Management.
