Virtual Production: How to Be Good

While at University of Greenwich, I worked on many fascinating projects. How to be Good was one of my favourites. For this ambitious project, I shot BTS photographs, created content, and co-curated a social media campaign sharing its outputs. Film & TV staff and practitioners at the School of Design produced a short film using Virtual Production technologies as part of a wider research activity looking at how to best integrate VP in current film and television education. Outputs from the project raised awareness of the importance of Virtual Production in the future of the screen industries and helped the Film & TV Programmes secure a book deal.
