Marissa's story:
Glasgow based creative documentary producer

Following 12 years as a multimedia producer for the Guardian, my first feature film; Margaret Tait: Film Poet, (2013) was funded by Creative Scotland and screened at Dunoon and Edinburgh Film festivals. I produced and self shot for a short documentary Universal Motherhood (2018) for Save the Children, which was given a broadcast slot on BBC2. Since living in Scotland I have made over 30 short museum installation films about Scottish Artists, including Joan Eardley, Alasdair Gray and David Shrigley, for the V&A, Hunterian and The National Galleries of Scotland. In 2022 I directed a short film for BBC Scotland called Between The Dog and The Wolf and produced West Country for director Rowan Ings as part of Bridging the Gap, funded by Screen Scotland.

I have over 15 years experience (and very big passion for!) sound and image archives for print and online media, and worked as the researcher for Jeanie Finlay's BBC Storyville Documentary: Orion The Man Who Would Be King. My particular experience lies in arts and factual related research.
