In 2017 I was commissioned to create a short experimental film to be projected onto the wall of the Great Hall at Dartington Hall during the 'Storm' Interlude for the two performances of Benjamin Britten's opera Peter Grimes in August 2017.
The highly visual film followed on from my experimental work with inks in water, with visuals mimicking both the orchestra and the stormy sea.
24 and 26 August 2017, Dartington International Summer School & Festival presented two performances of Benjamin Britten’s opera Peter Grimes, in the iconic medieval Great Hall venue.

Badger Politics is a series of mockumentory shorts based around the 2015 General Election.
A series of shorts that took real people talking about their real feeling towards politics, except they're dressed as badgers. Through visual comedy Badger Politics creates a space in which young people can openly engage with and talk about politics.
Badger Politics was shown throughout the Strive Festival at the Southbank Centre 2015.
Inside Space is a short film commissioned by Fringe Arts Bath in collaboration with Bath Spa University, to give an artistic response to a lecture titled 'Diagnosis on Demand' by Dr Chris Frost. Part of FaB Ignites Research.
The film explores the idea of new diagnostic technologies within the realm of a well loved television series.
By using stop motion and puppetry I created a visually intriguing and engaging film to spark the imagination of people who may get a lot from the structure of academic lectures.
The film was exhibited in the Gallery 44AD in Bath during January and show throughout the Fringe 2015.
