Mr Joe Brett's photo

I joined the University of Southampton in 2011 and have had several media related roles in the time between then and now. My background is in Media Production and Animation and after graduating from University I worked as a Freelance Motion Graphics designer for several large corporate firms, as well as being lucky enough to work on a few feature films in a special effects capacity.

Although coming into Education sounds like a strange left turn from that previous career, it's not as different as you'd think. The important thing I learnt as a freelance (and have developed further in my time at the University), is the power of storytelling. It's taking a subject that may be complex, or niche (or potentially dry) and creating a narrative out of it that allows everyone to understand and get excited about it.

My philosophy when it comes to video is that it should get people excited and interested enough in the subject, that they want to find out more about it, for themselves.
