I am a film educator and trainer with over twenty years’ experience. I run the popular beginners’ filmmaking site

I've been involved in a number of pioneering film and media education projects and around the UK and beyond, including EuroMeduc and Film: 21st Century Literacy.

I wrote the guide ‘Using Film in Schools’, the interactive resource/iPad app ‘Making Movies Make Sense’, and teaching packs based on the Welsh films Separado! and Sleep Furiously. I have provided activities linking film to music-making, creative writing and poetry, including schools projects and film and literature festivals.

Recent work includes youth film projects for Kids in Museums; iPad and iPhone film training workshops for public sector organisations, charities and businesses; and school and community workshops as part of the Film in Afan project.
