I'm a freelance filmmaker and am passionate about working creatively with children, young people and adults, introducing them to the filmmaking process.

I cover the following areas:

creative development - ideas, storyboards and scripts
performance - acting, clothes, make-up and props
production - schedules, locations and roles
filming - lights, camera, action
post-production - editing, dvds and files for web

The approach is fun, collaborative and hands-on, so that everyone can work together and is given a chance to get fully involved in the creative process.

Lights, camera, children!

In September 2009, I ran a number of film workshops with a primary school in north London. The aim was to introduce the children to filmmaking and help them develop their own film ideas, working together in teams.

Lights. Camera. Children (below) captures that process and gives a flavour of some of the topics the children explored, and the ideas they developed.

One Planet Future

When the World Wildlife Fund briefed me to make a film to open their schools’ conference and introduce their environemtal work to primary school children, my initial thought was “Why don’t we work with the children to produce the film?”

It was a simple idea. And One Planet Future (below) was the result! A short, animated film made with 60 Year Five children. The film was awarded Highly Commended at the Green Awards, 2008. And featured at the Green Film Festival run by Picture House Cinemas’.

As the ‘making of’ film Creativity & Education (below) testifies, by involving the children in the creative process – from researching the issues to doing the drawings and voice-overs – they really engaged with the issues.

The teacher informed my that when the children left the school, many of them cited this project as one of the most enjoyable memories of their time at the school.
