Working with charities and not-for-profit organisations is close to my heart. I regularly work with Mind, VSO, Cancer Research UK, Macmillan Cancer Support, ICS and Plan UK.

EMILY'S STORY | MACMILLAN CANCER SUPPORT

I directed, produced and edited four short films for Macmillan to promote their biggest ever Christmas appeal. The appeal was based on Emily, who was diagnosed with cancer when she was only four years old, and received support from Macmillan nurse, Marie. The appeal went on to raise over £1 million for the charity – their most successful Christmas appeal ever. A privilage to produce.

NO WOMAN SHOULD DIE GIVING BIRTH I VSO & THE SERVICE

In Uganda,  women are 38 times more likely to die in childbirth than women in the UK. 

Gurdun Witt is a midwife and a VSO volunteer. This film shows the important work that volunteers are doing to save mothers' and babies' lives.

 

CELESTE'S STORY I VSO

When Celeste’s husband died from TB, Celeste had no money and a ten-year-old son, Julio, to look after. This is a story about how she coped with grief, and found the power to change her, and her son’s life. This heart-warming film was produced for VSO and demonstrates how inspiring women like Celeste are. The film went down so well it was featured on the Guardian's website and Marie Claire’s online magazine.
