About April

I am a freelance Filmmaker, specialising in documentaries, content videos and films, exploring themes of culture, identity, global scenes, climate change and social justice. I have experience creating first class content for a variety of clients and platforms. I believe in the power of films and content production to inspire, excite, entertain and educate. My experience has taught me to think on my feet and create compelling videos that can quickly engage an audience. I have worked on films in Europe, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Ethiopia and South America, in demanding environments where I have demonstrated that I am a creative self starter, with the ability to use initiative and problem solve under pressure. I am a talented filmmaker with experience capturing high-quality footage, audio and lighting as well as editing engaging videos within tight timescales. I have worked on two UK short films that have over 1 million views on Youtube. I have raised awareness on marginalised communities as they fight against years of discrimination in Kenya. I produced a documentary series that followed an award-winning filmmaker as he travelled 7000 miles from the UK to Chile fossil-fuel free. I have given a voice to young climate activists fighting to get their voices heard by politicians at the UN climate summit. I’ve captured families fighting for justice after losing loved ones in the Ethiopian/ Boeing airplane crash and worked with clients on creative briefs for a variety of projects.
