Teaching

I am a working practitioner in the film industry, working as a short form content producer and educator. I currently teach film at FE level and have previously taught HE undergraduate levels. I run a filmmaking project that provides training and skills development to new filmmakers.

Key teaching topics: practical film production, producing, directing, sound (theory and practical), film history, film analysis, on-set etiquette, scheduling, budgeting, auteur theory, and scriptwriting.
