IT STARTS WITH ART
This short documentary is my Media Broadcast Production Master's Dissertation project.
This documentary examines the power art has on us, why it can be an effective tool for prison rehabilitation and what it means to those who need it most. In this documentary we sat down with Stephen Greer, freelance artist who was a former prisoner. We talk to Stephen about his journey through art, how he came to turn his life around and dedicating himself to give others the help he was given when he needed it most. We also spoke to Fred Caulfield, head of Prison Arts Foundation about what the charity does to help people like Stephen, and talking about the psychology behind rehabilitation with Rebecca Ewing, a forensic psychologist who has spent years helping prisoners to make the changes necessary to reform.
This is a short documentary I worked on for my Media Broadcast production Master's.
This documentary centres on Turas, who are teaching the Irish Language in East Belfast. We set out creating this documentary hoping to explore ideas behind learning the language, what it means for the culture, what it means for identity, whether it needs to be the divisive topic it tends to be and how what the future may hold for the Irish language... Our Language... Ár dTeanga.
The Weatherbies Videos
These are some of the animations I have produced for The Weatherbies Youtube Channel. These videos are music videos and educational videos teaching young audiences key topics such as renewable energy, recycling, the water cycle and litter. The music videos are for The Weatherbies songs that spread eco friendly messages as well as songs about each character.
Live Here Love Here Collaboration
The Weatherbies partnered with Live Here Love Here to create a short music video for Live Here Love Here's #PlasticFreeJuly campaign. This video was created with LHLH's branding in mind, matching their colour-scheme while still retaining The Weatherbies feel and mixing the visuals appropriately.
Web'd Media Logo Animation
While branding my own design business I created an animation using my very first logo. I used After Effects puppet pin tool to rig the spider's legs and then key-framed each movement to create a short looping gif. This was a lot of fun and since it is the first logo I made for my own business it has a special place in my overly sentimental heart.
