A year after smashing through with her heralded video for 'Chandelier', the stellar single from 2014's 1000 Forms Of Fear, singer-songwriter Sia has announced plans to direct a film.

Talking with The Hollywood Reporter, Sia (Sia Kate Isobelle Furler), notes, "I was too embarrassed to tell anyone I wanted to make a movie, because I thought it would be seen as a vanity project, because I was a singer. And then last year after I made the 'Chandelier' video, I realized that I was pretty good at directing, so I felt a little bit braver."

The 39-year-old Australian artist revealed that she originally wrote the film titled Sister as a one-page short story nearly eight years ago. Like 'Chandelier', the film will feature Maddie Ziegler, the 12-year-old dance star (Dance Moms, anyone?) who depicted a young Sia. Furler went on to add that she's working with children's author Dalles Clayton to work out the dialogue of the film, which they've been hammering out for a reported three weeks.

"For me, the process was basically, I work out the movie. I'll act it out, I'll have the dialogue already in my head," she says. "It's really the formatting … I can't be bothered to learn Final Draft. I'm not a technical person. Like, when I sing, I just want to sing the melody and write the lyrics. I don't want to have to do production, which is very technical. I don't enjoy that."
