Documentary

I honed my documentary skills during a Science Communication MSc. In the 9 years since then I've been devising creative ways to tell the most interesting and complex stories. My work captures scientists, dancers, activists, free-runners, patients, and musicians from London to the deepest parts of the ocean. I've met researchers working at 5,300m above sea level on Mount Everest, and at 4,000m below in the deep ocean. I've directed orchestras to explain genetics, used plasticine to untangle malaria transmission and lego to demonstrate how we search for life on other planets. My malaria short won the 2016 Association of British Science Writer's award for best TV Programme/web film.


Epigenome: The symphony in your cells

Nominated for a Lovie Award for best editing.

I created a mini-orchestra to help explain epigenetics. It was a challenging, unique, fun, project for science journal Nature.com

 


Living in a World Without Light

Nominated for best documentary at IOMFF 2015, and screened at the International Year of Light festival in Mexico City.

In this short for Physics World, we meet a blind psychotherapist who sleeps in 90 minute cycles around the clock. Alongside the professor whose controversial discovery about the eye, changed how we think about light forever. 


Mars Diffracts!

Lego Mars Rovers and plasticine planets featured in this short film. Blending animation with space scientists, engineers and astrobiologists to  tell the story of the 100yr old scientific technique alive and in use in space.

Shortlisted for the 2014 Isle of Man Film Festival Best short Documentary

A recent film about Xray Crystallography which was commissioned by the Royal institution.

Here is a film I made for the Guardian about scientific research happening on Mount Everest.

I did some of the camerawork and production on this film, it was fun to get wheeled around on a big trolley shooting tracking shots.
