I conceived and produced the world's first variable duration documentary. I worked with a BBC Radio 4 production team to design a narrative and workflow which delivered the linear broadcast programme and a web-based variable duration programme. The programme could be played back an any length while maintaining the integrity of the story. I led a team of experts who created a reusable technological implementation that allowed other responsive radio programmes in the future. With: BBC R&D
During the 2012 World Cup I traveled around Kenyan rural villages with an inflatable TV screen and a sattelite truck and screened the football matches that would otherwise have been missed by these communities. With the support of Google, I took a team and the equipment to Kenya and toured around rural villiages during the tourament. With: Moving the Goalposts
I devised and delivered a project investigating the benefits of using format agnostic production methods for BBC radio programmes. Providing an assessment of the impact of these processes on the production workflow and the benefit to the audience. This included working a number of high profile BBC outside broadcasts including recording performances from Elbow, The BBC Philharmonic and The Last Night of the Proms where I was responsible for the additional technology required to create an immersive experience, planning the recordings, setting them up and integrating new tefchnology with the standard broadcasting set up. With: Elbow, The Proms
I devised and implemented "The Sound of the Space", an evolving soundscape for The Spacewhich automatically reflected the site's content. This worked by regularly sampling audio from the most recent media added to the site and creating a soundscape by mixing parts of that audio together, all automatically. With: Matthew Herbert
I created the "Paper" CCTV video for the band I played with at the time. I created the video for "The Get Out Clause" by collecting CCTV video from around Manchester and editing it to fit music. The video was made on a budget of virtually nothing and was seen worldwide, viewed on YouTube over 750000 times. You can read more about this here.
I was responsible for collecting and analysing technical requirements for the BBC Children’s Department’s move to MediaCityUK. I acted as a member of the Technical Design Authority, feeding Children’s requirements to the delivery team, to ensure a smooth transition on their move from Television Centre in West London to MediaCityUK in Salford.
I designed and developed an iOS application for displaying real-time camera metadata (e.g. GPS location and camera orientation), on an interactive map from streamed XML data and allowing the user to choose a camera to view. This was part of the european project - VSAR.
