Animal Sanctuaries

Animal Sanctuary the series was created for Made in Cardiff, produced by Mariclare Carey-Jones, co presented by Dai Watkins, filmed by myself and edited by Rhian George.

The series follows Mariclare Carey-Jones and Animal Conservationist Dai Watkins as they visit animal sanctuaries across South Wales  to find out about the great work they do. Each episode features a different centre, so the audience will be finding out about a whole host of animals from chimps and tortoises to owls and lemurs.

I enjoyed shooting the series so much I ended up rescuing two tortoises of my own! Here’s a video of Boris and Ron the Tortoise exploring their new home, just for fun 🙂

Made In Wales 2011

Broadcast on BBC Wales December 2011

Made in Wales is a short series of films organised by media training company, Its My Shout. Each year 6 short films are created by a combination of new entrants to the industry and experienced professionals. Once the series is complete, each film is aired on BBC Wales, followed by a 30minute documentary on the production process. The experience culminates in an awards ceremony where all the films are celebrated and awards are given to those who have been seen to achieve great standards of work during the process.

Natalie directed and produced the documentary entitled ‘Made in Wales- The Making Of’. Created with the assistance of new industry entrants under Natalies’s guidance and co-produced by the BBC and Its My Shout. The 2011 documentary tells the story of 3 individuals who are beginning their careers and experiencing a professional short film shoot for the first time.

These individuals personal experience range greatly, from Taryn, supporting actress, who finds Its My Shout filming from the estate she lives, to Gavin Porter – a director who has a passion for documentary but takes firm hold of this fantastic opportunity to direct fiction for television. And finally Seimon who has participated with Its My Shout several times over the years and is finding his role progressing each year, even now, with his new freelance career in the Art Dept kicking off, he still values the experiences gained on the Made in Wales series. The documentary is tied together with first time broadcast presenter Kevin McCurdy whose enthusiasm for the scheme is evident.

The documentary covered a range of material from archive footage to location shooting, voice over recording and live event filming. It was edited offline by Natalie and assistant Marco Carini and the process was overseen by mentor Gareth Rees-Rowlands.
