My mission is to offer every person in Scotland, irrespective of background, resources or experience, the opportunity to be a digital filmmaker. This could be as simple as creating a birthday video for a loved one, as grand as a revolutionary call to action or as essential as connecting together a community, expressing an opinion or telling a story.
I believe that we already have the tools, in fact we work and live with mobile mini-movie studios all around us. What we lack is the training and opportunity to utilise mobile technology (mobile phones/tablets) to bring our stories to life.
By delivering interactive, fun and engaging training and film projects, working together we can create the opportunities and share these stories with friends, family, local communities and the world.
Films have played a huge part in my life, from a cartoon obsessed child, a spotty teenager chained to the cinema, a fresh-faced Camera/Editor and more recently as a Lecturer in Film & Media at Glasgow Clyde College.
I believe that the digital revolution is not just for some people but everybody. There has never been a better and more accessible time to make the films that we want to see. Making content that tells stories that speak to us - who we are, is a very exciting prospect.
