I’m Ian Ravenscroft, a writer, filmmaker, and creative digital producer.
I’m Ian Ravenscroft, a versatile and creative digital producer with over 10 years’ experience in video, social, web, interactive, animation, writing, and strategy projects.
I’ve worked with major broadcasters such as BBC Three, Channel 4, and Nickelodeon, as well as being part of innovation teams at the BBC’s Digital Guerrillas, and running digital design projects with a selection of top agencies.
I spent two years at BBC Three working across content production and development as we won the RTS and Broadcast Digital Channel of the Year. And previously, I was a member of the BBC Digital Guerrillas innovation lab developing and producing innovative content for the BBC’s young, diverse online communities.
On the agency side, I’ve worked for Meshed, Made, and Fast-Fwd running large-scale online projects with designers and developers, as well as creating and executing social media strategies and community building campaigns for big arts, culture, and corporate clients.
On the creative side, I have also been a screenwriter and producer making award-winning original short films with Dice Productions. Commissions include projects for Channel 4, Nickelodeon, Factory, and UK Film Council such as animated comedies Don’t Fear Death starring Rik Mayall, Duckmanboy starring Rasmus Hardiker and Mike Wozniak, and Man In A Cat, starring Kevin Eldon and Josie Long.
I am currently Senior Digital Creative Producer at Fast-Fwd where I run a range of digital projects. I am also developing new creative work as a writer.
In a nutshell, I’m a multi-skilled digital creative looking to lead the way in engaging people, entertaining audiences, and pushing boundaries.
