What I Do
This can involve shoot sit-down interviews and on-location filming – like this series of films I made for The Mountain Way charity. Nowadays, I mostly edit things – like this recent video about superconductors. I have also covered sports events, presentations, and conferences.
This is mostly web design and development. I'm fairly familiar with HTML, JS, CSS, Sass, React, and GatsbyJS. I'm somewhat (> 20 hours each) familiar with Google Analytics, WordPress, and Firebase. I'm currently getting to grips with NodeJS.
I make animations ranging from small logo animations ('idents') to more sophisticated motion graphics. They can work as standalone pieces, or integrated into a film. Most of this is done in After Effects.
This includes posters, logos, and social media output. A good example is my work for the Cambridge Union.
Through setting up Hear This Idea, I'm now fairly proficient with the basics of podcasting: audio engineering, hosting, remote interviews, etc. I enjoy consulting on this — email me for rates (pro bono if you're a nonprofit).

I have delivered talks on mostly philosophical subjects, especially longtermism, and especially to local EA groups (in Cambridge, Hong Kong, and India). I was shortlisted to deliver a TEDx talk on the value of teaching philosophy in schools.
