Welcome to my website

I am a local community film maker and reporter in Cambridge, reporting on the changes that are happening in and around Cambridge. I also founded and delivered the Be the change – Cambridge project in 2014/15. You can view the films and clips I have created as follows:

  • My blog, ‘A dragon’s best friend’ – click here
  • The newsfeed @Puffles2010 on Twitter, and my work feed @ACarpenDigital.

My Youtube videos are mainly films and interviews about local politics and democracy. My Vimeo account is much more diverse in terms of content, covering musical and theatre performances, as well as being a place where I upload experimental video clips trying out new concepts.

In the run up to the 2015 general election, my Youtube channel recorded over 6,000 views, and over 16,000 minutes (over 25- hours worth) of video footage viewed. I have uploaded over 100 film clips since January 2015. Given that I only filmed within a small radius – about 10 miles in and around the Cambridge, the level of interest has been astonishing.

I’m not commissioned by anyone to produce these videos, so am reliant on donations from you, the viewing public. If you’d like to help cover the costs I incurred filming the debates, hustings and interviews from the elections in Cambridge, and/or would like to support me in continuing with regular extended interviews with our local politicians, civic leaders and activists, please click on the link -> Digital democracy support details

Thank you for your kind support.
