Film & Videography

Film and video can be a powerful tool to get your message across, and need not be expensive or time-consuming to produce. Powerful documentaries and corporate videos can be built from interviews, footage of key activities and archive, and events can be recorded professionally given adequate lighting and audio feeds. Get in touch in advance of your deadline and we can produce something that will exceed your expectations.

Papworth: A Moving Story is a Heritage Lottery funded film about the 100-year history of the pioneering heart and lung hospital from tuberculosis colony to state-of-the-art cardiothoracic research and treatment facility, all the while retaining its core humanitarian principles. I wrote and directed this film, which was a real experience, I will never forget filming open heart surgery for one thing! This is the film trailer.

The Gates Cambridge scholarships needed a new film to give a short overview of the programme, outline its aims and ethos, and give a flavour of the character and work of some of their current scholars. I developed this in close collaboration with the participants to hopefully paint a succinct but accurate picture.

The Model Conversation is a film about attitudes to physical disability, looking at peoples' life experiences and the changes (or lack of change) over the past 30 years. It was a commission for Cambridgeshire Alliance for Independent Living, through the Heritage Lottery Fund.
