My name is Ella Kemp and I am a writer, photographer, and podcaster based in London. I am also a member of the London Critics Circle and a BIFA voter.

How Many Stars was created in 2015 as a home for film and music reviews, indulging too many arbitrary star ratings. Now, it shelters a curated selection of my work, from journalism to photography with a bit of podcasting in between. To see all my up-to-date star ratings, you can follow me on Letterboxd here.

If you’d like to reach me to discuss working together, get in touch at or on social media.

And, by the way, there are approximately 1 billion trillion stars in the universe.
