Academic Course Leader in Media Production

"My background is in film-making and cinematography but in recent years my practice has expanded to include virtual reality and transmedia which I find absolutely fascinating.

It's amazing to see how new media professionals combine so many elements of practice; our course reflects this by bringing traditional communications together with emergent ideas and technologies.

During my time at the university, I have continued working in the media industry and my latest feature film was released in March 2017. My industry experience means I can help students produce work that is being broadcast nationally and has won and been nominated for prestigious awards such as the Royal Television Society Awards and the Griersons Award."
