Teaching and research

Teaching

I bring extensive industry experience to my teaching and implement a combination of practical and lecture based teaching in post production, and narrative storytelling in both documentary and drama.

Level

Undergraduate

Research

A recurring interest of mine is the specific process of narrative creation as an empowering experience. I am keen to research new ways to capture this process on film. I am also interested in exploring the way films can translate into live events and become interactive experiences in order to further connect with and empower their audiences, this is what my current research is exploring.
