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

 

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.

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.

ALICE'S STORY I VSO

Alice’s family were homeless and living in extreme poverty when her miner father and brother died. Despite being the youngest sibling, she took on the burden of supporting everyone. This story is truly amazing and when editing it, I was inspired by how women like Alice have overcome such adversity to change their family’s lives for the better.

 

PLAY YOUR PART I VSO & THE SERVICE

Shakespeare Lives was an exciting global programme of events and activities celebrating Shakespeare’s work, which ran during 2016 - the 400th year anniversary of his death.

VSO and the British Council teamed up for the Shakespeare Lives campaign. This film shows how every child deserves an education and the brilliant work that VSO do to make this happen.

ICS PROMO I ICS & THE SERVICE

International Citizen Service (ICS) is an overseas volunteering programme for 18-25 year olds. I edited a series of promotional films to help showcase the amazing difference volunteers can make in developing countries, as well as helping young professionals gain vital experience in advancing their careers. 

 

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.
