Carla MacKinnon

MA work

Drawing on a background in event production, live action, fine art and technology, my approach is interdisciplinary and collaborative. As a filmmaker I am interested in exploring big themes inspired by science and the humanities through work that is often dark, sometimes funny and always visually compelling. I produce films that can stand alone but are often part of broader cross-platform projects, sometimes integrating audience interaction into the development process.

I am interested in taking on projects which can make the most of my diverse skillset: a professional background as a project manager and event producer, as well as creative direction, development and filmmaking skills. I am looking to take on projects that are innovative, experimental, interdisciplinary and ambitious.
