September 2007 - August 2008 (1 year)
I directed, shot and edited 'Mi Vida Loca', BBC Learning's interactive Spanish language eLearning course, available free at www.bbc.co.uk/mividaloca. Shot from the user's point of view, you feel as if you're in Spain, meeting and talking to real Spaniards. Learning how to order a drink or getting a cab are mixed with a dramatic story.
'Mi Vida Loca' won a Bafta Craft award (Interactive Innovation) in 2009 and was nominated for an AOP award (Use of Video) and Webby award (Broadband).
