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.

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

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

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