BBC MAKE IT DIGITAL — MORGAN SPENCE

 

Client: nmcn / BBC
Producer: Ben White
Camera + Edit: Olly Newport
With thanks: Morgan Spence

I was approached by Ben White from NMCN to produce two short films for the BBC's Make it Digital campaign. They wanted to help and inspire 11-16 year old youths who are curious about a variety of industries.

This would entail interviewing slightly older 'Inspirers'  (17-24) who are using digital skills and creativity in inspirational ways.
