Independent Video Producer, Part time Lecturer, PhD Candidate

  • Location: Northwest England
  • Career stage: Entry
  • Freelancer: Available

I have my own production company, working with other freelancers to film and document events and corporate videos.

I have developed a passion for Transmedia storytelling, as this forms an integral part of my PhD. I love the immersive nature of it, particularly when it is used in the 'offline' world through live action drama. I draw a great deal of inspiration from the likes of Henry Jenkins and Andrea Philips, whose theories both analyse the current media but also explore boundaries of combining those media..

I have a strong interest in social and digital media, particularly in creating dynamic, engaging and shareable content.

Since 2013, I have taught across three modules at The University of Bolton; The first is about encouraging students to become more enterprising, exploring creative businesses and the process involved in creating a business This includes booking and facilitating talks with external, guest lectuers. The other two modules are more theory and address wider social issues in the media such as culture, audience, medium and feminism.
