About me
Whilst I am an in-house assistant producer for BBC Three, my responsibilities have including PD'ing for their Amazing Humans viral social strand. I've also just finished filming a 1x40min doc for iPlayer on young people and grief. My prior experience includes producing and directing digital content for Jamie Oliver at Fresh One Productions, and working on a number of documentaries for Lion Television before that.
Projects
  • Learning To Grieve
    Learning To GrieveI produced and shot a documentary exploring sibling grief for BBC Three (which also aired on BBC One).
  • Jamie Mag PromotionI was approached by the Art Department of Jamie Oliver ltd and asked to create a video to promote their Christmas issue of Jamie Magazine. The brief was to film and edit a video of Jamie on a photo-shoot for the front cover. The aim was to promote content due to appear in the December edition of the magazine.

Joshua received a head injury in a quad bike incident when he was 11 years old and was told by doctors that he'd never walk again. A chance meeting with choreographer, Michael opened a world of performance to him as he takes on his biggest challenge yet- a modern dance that makes him proud to be who he is now. Shot on Sony A7S
