This is my 2020 showreel with clips from my animations made during my time at Middlesex University and as a freelance animator.
This is my film Forward Together made from the audio of an interview with Midwife and Nurse, Maxine Chong. As a Black woman who was a key worker during the Covid pandemic, she shares her personal and proffessional opinions on the vaccine as well as the inherited mistrust black people have due to past and present cases of systemic racism within scientific and medical institutions. This piece was commissioned by Warwickshire County Council to help reasure black people and women of child bearing ages who have been shown to be more hesitant to take up the vaccine.

The Lady with The Heavy Hat
This is my second year film- The Lady with Heavy Hat.
A elderly lady reminisces about her life and the events that led her to wear the same heavy hat, day and night, for 30 years.
It’s a film inspired by true snipets of my grandparents love story and a bronze bust of a lady in a hat that i saw in the Birmingham art musem.
It’s a bitter sweet romance with an odd twist.
It won “best film” twice when it was screened by Middlesex university and it has been shown at the launch party for the first Cardiff Animation Festival.
