As a filmmaker and workshop practitioner, I work with a wonderfully broad range of artists, clients, participants and students to produce films for a variety of purposes, but always with a basis in the huge potential for film as a tool for communication and storytelling.
Following a degree in Drama at the University of Manchester (2003/2006), I began to work with musicians, arts organisations, museums, and theatres such as the National Football Museum, Imperial War Museum, The Royal Exchange, Abandon Normal Devices, Elbow and Mr Scruff. I also returned to UoM for an MA in Visual Anthropology (2012/2013) and so had the chance to dedicate some time to documentary filmmaking.
I love working within these diverse settings which allow me to tie together participatory practice with capturing and representing stories from a wide cross-section of the public. I continue to collaborate on arts commissions, often involving community engagement, and to work with a variety of organisations to produce films and installations that capture and share their individual message.
In 2015 I co-founded TripleDotMakers TripleDotMakers where we continue to mix up and push our skills to find new ways of sharing stories.
