I’m Ian Ravenscroft, a shooting/editing filmmaker, producer, and shortform content specialist.
I’ve been at the BBC for over 3 years and currently lead the shortform team at Royal Television Society and Broadcast Digital Channel of the Year-winning BBC Three. We produce short video content for young audiences across social platforms.
I started my career as a writer and producer of award-winning animation and short film, winning original commissions from folk including Channel 4, Nickelodeon, and UK Film Council. Together with my creative partner Louis Hudson at Dice Productions we have won accolades including London Short Film Festival, and gained Royal Television Society and British Animation Award nominations.
I was also a member of the BBC Digital Guerrillas content innovation team where I developed and produced innovative digital content across the BBC.
I have previously held positions as a digital producer, social media producer, digital project manager, and journalist, working predominantly in the arts and media.
