Making films has always been an aspiration for me. In 2011, I began my youtube channel Gaian2012, and with it, started making short pagan & esoteric videos. These covered Paganism, Wicca & Witchcraft, Events, Festivals, socials etc.
In 2013, I began making a Doctor Who Fan film series (11 episodes) and in 2 years, had learnt so much about script writing, blocking, location filming, making props/costumes, filming and editing (oh the editing!!).
In January 2016, a shift occurred! I began venturing more into dance / music / story telling videos…(and not just Esoteric / magical videos, features or DrWho fan series!). A number of great creative collaborations with my friends have come about..
Here is the music video I filmed / produced for Joie de Winter and her first song `SongBird’
Below is a video I filmed/produced for my friend Melanie who had the idea and performed a belly-dance in the style of `Mother of Dragons- Game of Thrones’ !
There are many project that are nearing completion and I will put links here as example. And of course there’s so many of my own ideas/ videos to work on .. features, story telling, fan videos, covering events, interviews erc.
I am always interested in co-creating/ collaborating with friends and other professionals in Digital Film Making projects. These can be either as hired works or free joint venture projects. So please do get in touch.
