Trailer for our short film ‘Disconnected’. Huge thanks to everyone who submitted to this project. Last year we created an answer phone system in which young people across the UK could call in and leave messages about their experience of loneliness. In many ways, loneliness is still considered a taboo. Whilst many of us feel it, few will talk about it openly. This film explores a world in which we are ‘connected’ but more isolated than ever before. The full film will premiere at the Sheffield Doc/Fest, and San Francisco Documentary Festival in June. Full trailer link in bio.
I’m incredibly proud to have produced this short film. Directed by @aliceaedy (her first film!!) ‘Disconnected’ has been selected to have it’s World Premiere at Sheffield Doc/Fest. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ‘Disconnected’ is a short documentary exploring loneliness amongst young people in the UK. Set against dystopian dramatisations shot on 16mm film, this abstract and atmospheric meditation on the loneliness epidemic sheds light on a world in which we are ‘connected’, but more isolated than ever. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank-you to everyone who made this happen and a huge thanks to those who called our hotline and submitted to this film, we hope it does justice to your stories. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Trailer for ‘Disconnected’ is available via link in my bio. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Exec Prod: @jackharries Producer: @archiepearch Cam: @fraserrigg AC: @a_m_martinez Edit: @rossleppard Sound Design: @sashkopotter Composer: Eren Önsoy Colour: @josephbicknell Artwork by: @albinh
One million plant and animals species are on the verge of extinction, with alarming implications for human survival, according to a recent United Nations report. Last week I joined @wwf_uk.to give a speech at Parliament, urging politicians to take urgent action on climate change. I shared a panel with Secretary of State for environment Michael Gove, Labour MP Clive Lewis and Tanya Steele, CEO of @wwf_uk. The legendary @carolinelucasmp came down too!
My interview on CNN with the legendary reporter Christiane Amanpour in which we discuss the climate emergency and the tactics of Extinction Rebellion.
Stills from my new short film “Our Planet - Behind the Scenes” with @wwf_uk and @ourplanet. The people who live and work in the Maasai Mara, one of the world’s last remaining protected grasslands, play a crucial role in protecting some of our planets most magnificent wildlife. The ‘conservancy’ model in Kenya benefits wildlife by protecting valuable ecosystems and crucial migration corridors whilst also supporting the community, through sustainable tourism. Importantly this tourism gives wildlife an inherent value which helps mitigate human/wildlife conflict. Full link to film in bio! @wwf_uk@ourplanet.@netflix
Joining the crew in Kenya to go behind the scenes of ‘Our Planet’ was a once in a lifetime opportunity. This show took four years to make and uses some of the latest camera technology - including a cineflex camera, which can be mounted on the helicopter behind us. We spent a week in the Maasai Mara learning about the threats facing grasslands and how this effects wildlife around the world. It was amazing to see just how much work goes into making a show like this. I’ll be sharing a behind the scenes film soon, but for now ‘Our Planet’ is live on Netflix!
