What am I?
I have been trying to work out what to label myself for years
I am a video activist- using video to either bring about social change or inspire people to get involved in having a say within their own country or community. But it is a bit limiting.
Film maker- sounds too 'hollywood' or people raise eyebrows in that..'oh you make porn do you?' way or they go on about their son, nephew who is making a film about vampires in the Welsh Valleys....yawn.
So how about Factual filmmaker? that has a ring to it that I like. It is clear that i don't do drama or soap operas..
So i am going to try it for a while..Let me through-I am a factual filmmaker!
