Videos

I have included a separate video page to show off some of the films I have been involved in producing or editing, as well as some recent interviews.  Many of those situations in which I have made films with students involved handing over control of the camera to the students. The ones that are and involve students, with the exception of the one in Tanzania, are set to unlisted on YouTube, so they are not generally searchable.  I just use the video hosting site to enable easy embedding of content. I used to be a regular user of Windows Movie Maker, but I now use Camtasia Studio to edit my films. The link to my YouTube channel with older videos is here.  There is another channel here with more recent films and tutorials.

‘IATEFL TALK’ @ Brighton. My presentation on 10 April 2018 at the IATEFL conference in Brighton.  My blog post in which I published my research into this area was published on the same day.  Around 70 people saw the talk live, but many more heard about it and also wanted to see it.  So I asked Grace Alchini to record it from the front row using my mobile device. Adam Simpson and Mike Harrison helped capture the long shot.

‘PARAPHRASE’ @ CAL ‘Bring a Dish Party’, The Chaplaincy, University of Warwick, June 2012. About this video: This was a one-off performance of Coldplay’s ‘Paradise’, written by Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion, Chris Martin and produced by Brian Eno. This is the instrumental version purchased from Karaoke Version.  I re-wrote the words, however, to make them relevant to my fellow students on the MA ELT course at Warwick.  It was intended to be a humourous performance with a serious point to be made about the dangers of plagiarism.

We lead the project, helping out with the time consuming editing process at the end.  As a first experience of using film and English as a Lingua Franca, it was a great start.
