DIRECTOR BIO
My name is Peter and I am a graduate in BSc Computer Graphics, Vision and Games (First Class Honours) from Aberystwyth University, currently studying MA Film (Directing) at the University of South Wales! I have working knowledge of multiple programming languages, game creation inside of Unity, 3D model creation, animation and compositing with Blender, and the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite, specifically Premiere, After Effects, Photoshop, and Audition.

I specialize in graphics, visual effects, and computer game design. I have worked effectively in a team to solve problems for coding assignments in my 14 month industrial year placement, along with learning to listen and give constructive help to others. I have experience creating websites with knowledge of both front and back-end development. Ability to design and create 3D models within Blender, using these within and creating inside the Unity Game engine.

I have been part of the Young Actors Company for the past 12 years and have acted in multiple devised and improvised pieces, including some I wrote and directed.I achieved RADA Shakespeare Bronze, Silver with distinction, and Gold awards and, whilst at my first year at University, I co-directed a 15-minute play. During 2020 I wrote and directed the 8-part radio podcast Good Morning from Radio6.
