Best of Moviedrome

I took a wander through the vaults of my NAS recently and ended up watching through a bunch of old workshop videos – while I have unfortunately produced more workshop material than I ever kept, I am still in possession of some of my favourite videos and animations created by and with young people and thought it was time that some of them had an airing!

Moviedrome was a weekly filmmaking workshop I led for young people at the Hive Music and Media Centre, Shrewsbury from 2004 to 2010 (pre-HD, hence the low resolution). Although I have led numerous other film and animation activities both during and since, those sessions were some of the most fun I ever had running a workshop; the films the participants made still make me chuckle now 🙂

Here is a small selection of some of my favourite videos – the surf guitar track at the beginning and the end is ‘That’s Right’ by Pirato Ketchup, check em out here.

And yes, we did use that dodgy Youtube-ripped clip from ‘Knowing’ twice – we ain’t even sorry.

I am a freelance artist mainly working with digital video, regularly managing video productions for both organisations and individuals and specialising in the documentation of arts events, exhibitions and performances and interviews, as well as creating my own films. In my own work, I like to examine the poetry in the commonplace, the beauty that goes unnoticed, and the ‘what if?’ I work with a variety of technologies ranging from high definition broadcast suites to low-cost mobile devices. Clients and employers have included British Library Labs, PQA, NCS The Challenge, Kings College London, Thinktank Science Museum and AL Control Laboratories. I am an independent Arts Award Advisor (trained to Gold level) and have worked with numerous community arts organisations in the UK, sharing my skills with young people interested in media production and the creative industries. I have produced and delivered hundreds of video projects, technology-based workshops and public art events. I also offer services such as media conversion, image editing and occasionally design/illustration work. I have my own equipment and car, and can multi-task like a fiend.
