We would like to announce the premiere of the Josephine Butler Documentary at a special event to mark International Women's Day 2018. The film will be shown as part of the evening events. Throughout the day there will also be various events to get involved with, including willow weaving, singing and yoga. The film premiere will be followed by a Q and A with myself (Director) and Dr Jane Jordan (remotely) author of the book 'Josephine Butler' (A Biography) and participator in the film. I'd be delighted if as many people could make it to the event as possible. The time is being finalised but it will be evening on March the 8th.

Josephine Butler Documentary10th Nov 17
I became aware of Josephine Butler a few years ago, and was fascinated by the fact that despite the work which she did and the tremendous achievements she made in her lifetime, she was relatively unknown generally. What makes her particularly remarkable is the nature of the causes she was campaigning for and the themes of her work, which still resonate today.
I am delighted to have received finding to make a short documentary about Josephine Butler which will premiere at the International Women’s Day next year (8th March, 2018). The project has its own page on this website, which will evolve as the film is produced. You can find it here.
A busy year for Freelancing20th Oct 17
2017 has been a busy year for freelancing, the beginning of the year saw me working at Shiver TV as a researcher on their series ‘David Jason - My Story on Screen’, this was followed by Spring / Summer back with Shiver working with Robson again on ‘Robson Green’s Coastal Lives’. Both programmes have now been shown, David Jason premiered on UK Gold during the August bank holiday, and Coastal Lives ran in September.
Postcards from Eyemouth3rd Mar 17
We were delighted to hear that the Postcards from Eyemouth Project is going to go ahead in April, at the Hippadrome. We were originally contacted abut his project in late 2016 and thought it sounded fascinating. The project aims to build a dialogue between residents of Eyemouth and discuss their town. The contributions from residents will then be presented and explored by young musicians at Leeds College of Music. Shadowcat Films have been asked to film the showcase of the work in late April, and create part of the lasting legacy of the project. You will be able to see the finished video here.
