South West Digital Heroes Award

I can't believe it, I won the award for the South West Digital Heroes Award.

I'll get £5,000 to set up and run new media group in Exwick, Exeter.

Can't wait, awesome :))

(I'll post more soon about this - must sleep now)

Not enough time to blog!!!

I never find the time to post things on my blog. I will try and get this sorted!!??

Over the last 6 months or so I've helped create a video and photo log about a new youth centre in Teignmouth, ran the digital art experiment and family art session at Exeter Phoenix Arts Centre, helped create a short film call 'Sweet Sixteen' with South Devon Colleges Link department and Wolf and Water Arts Co., help create a video about teenage binge drinking in Bovey Tracey with the Bench Project, helped create the International Women's Arts website , documented arts sessions for the University of Plymouths Widening Participation Project at Exeter College for young people just leaving care, helped a young man with Locked in Syndrome to create a website and a series of radio broadcasts, created theatrical video projections for a performance of the Wizard of Oz, helped create a number of costumes and masks for other various theatre projects, created a radio broadcast about Exeter Arts Space's Opening Exhibition, taught web design, Photoshop, Final Cut and Aftereffects at Exeter Phoenix Media Centre, documenting a amazing project with families of mixed heritage with Blazing Tales and Planet Rainbow, ran various animation projects including The Reach Project, worked with a group of young care leavers to create environmental art at Bicton College with Life Works.

I'm currently helping to create theatrical projections with a group of young people for a performance called 'Portal to the Priory' which is a mix of Tudor and contemporary dance and drama.

And I'm about to start to help a group at M.O.P. devise, shoot, edit and author a DVD about Devon County Councils Lettings Housing Scheme of which 10,000 DVD copies will be made to help people in the area find low cost affordable housing.

I've been a bit busy :))

It's been a while

As the title suggest, it has been a while.... since my last blog post.  I'm not really sure why this is apart from being really busy.  I've been doing quite a lot of voluntary work for Phonic FM. Dedicating a lot of time and effort towards the Phonic FM website.

I will try and write a blog entry for each project I have been or am working on.
