Projects credited in
  • Dysmorphia
    DysmorphiaDysmorphia is a short film offering an artistic take on how young men find it increasingly difficult to recognise and express their emotions, leading to body-image related issue and even body dysmorphic disorder. It also aims to address the much larger problem; while external influences on young men have multiplied there is still a lack of constructive and earnest conversations about what it means to be a ‘man’.

    Creative Producing for Digital platformsNational Film and Television School (NFTS)
     - Beaconsfield, United Kingdom
    This course led by BAFTA-winner Kim Plowright was an in-depth look at producing original content for digital platforms. I had the opportunity to work on live briefs and pitch creative ideas to Channel4, BBC, Tate Britain, Warner Bros TV Entertainment, Comic Relief, and others. From online interactive experiences to original TV formats, I developed a range of transferable skills on creating meaningful content for the digital industry.
