Over the past two years working as a freelance self-shooting producer, I have been lucky enough to work on a few of my own short films, commissioned by different brands. Initially, I was making these alongside my work for Studio Silverback but then made the transition to being freelance full-time. It has been great to start building my portfolio and have the ability to tell the stories that I am really passionate about.
Voices of the Forest
Voices of the Forest explores the research of Dr Anja Hutschenreiter, in which she records the vocalisations of spider monkeys, deep in the heart of the Mexican jungle, in order to determine whether humans and wildlife are able to co-exist. This film was made in collaboration with Jack Wolfskin.
Saving Sun Bears
The Bornean Sun Bear Conservation Centre is located in Sepilok, Borneo, and is dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating sun bears. In this film, I travel to meet Dr Wong, the founder of the centre, to learn more about the bears and what can be done to help them. This film was made in collaboration with Jack Wolfskin.
My Search for Otters
Isle of Mull
Journey up to the Isle of Mull, Scotland, in search of one of the most-loved animals, the otter whilst learning about their conservation, and the work being done to protect this species by the UK Wild Otter Trust. This film was made in collaboration with Jack Wolfskin.
