I’m one of the UK’s most experienced film educators. I run training in filmmaking for businesses, nonprofits, charities, arts and youth organisations, schools and higher education. I also run filmmaking workshops, activities and longer projects, and I can support you to make your own films. I’m based near Cardiff, South Wales, but I work throughout the UK and in Europe.

I believe that film and filmmaking is for everyone. Making a short video is a great way to tell your story or get your ideas across. It doesn’t have to be difficult: I’ve taught hundreds of children, young people and adults how to make films.

I’ve been involved in lots of film education projects and workshops over the last 20 years, working with organisations including Apple, BFI Education, Film Education, Filmclub, Film: 21st Century Literacy, Ffilm Cymru Wales, Into Film, Kids in Museums, Literature Wales and Zoom Cymru. This year I’ve been teaching about film language and filmmaking on the MA Digital Media: Education at UCL Institute of Education.

My publications and interactive resources include Editclass, Making Movies Make Sense and Using film in schools.

I’ve run training and made presentations about filmmaking and film education around the UK and in Ireland, France, Belgium, Italy and Georgia. I speak fluent Welsh and have a working knowledge of French and some Spanish.

I’m an Apple Distinguished Educator and an Arts Award Adviser (Bronze and Silver). I have an Enhanced DBS disclosure.
