BBC Contains Strong Language

Event videography is always great fun, especially when the event is one you’d want to go to anyway. That is absolutely the case with the BBC’s Contains Strong Language, a poetry and spoken word festival that takes over Hull each year in September. I got to film a wide range of events featuring everyone from Manchester’s future stars Young Identity to the award-winning Joseph Coelho to big hitters like Jessica Hynes and Mark Heap. My shots were used by Kirstie Henderson from Brave Day Films in the highlights reel below. Enjoy!

I've been producing digital content since 2012, primarily for flagship BBC brands like Blue Peter and BBC News. Now I run Studio 91 Media, a video production agency on a mission: to create content that is good for the internet, good for people and good for the world. When I'm not behind a camera, I can often be found playing cello at weddings or riding a three-wheeled cargo bike called Babs.
