Improving Children’s Reading (Collaboration with Derby City Council, Derbyshire County Council & Derby County FC)

I was approached by Sharon Hallsworth, Assistant Headteacher of Ashover Primary School in Derbyshire. She began an initiative to promote english and maths in primary schools, and with the help of Derby County footballers, she was able to film a video promoting the skills behind it.

She asked me to host a workshop at Tupton Hall to teach some primary school children some basic editing skills, I asked 5 people to join me when hosting the workshop and was able to create small groups to give them a helping hand with a small chunk of the footage, we decided to make it fun with a bit of healthy competition with the best teams video being in the final cut.

In the end, I was left with 3 cameras worth of footage and edited it into the 12 minute long video which will be mass produced onto DVD and distributed to all the primary schools in Derbyshire and Derby. It required me to focus on keeping the attention to detail high and to make sure that there were no errors, after some back and forth work with Sharon, I was able to produce the final copy which has now been distributed.

It was an amazing opportunity to be able to edit and participate in such an important project.

BSI YouTube

I am the leading editor and content curator for the BSI Youtube Channel. My role as head of the channnel within the community allows me to produce content which relates to the role-playing game called Star Citizen. Each video varies in structure and content, however, I lead the editing of majority of the videos with my team assisting in recording and sometimes editing the footage as well. Below are some of the projects I have been apart of within the channel.
