Welcome…

Playful Communications is the home of #MadeOnAMobile – a programme of workshops designed to give you confidence in capturing, editing and sharing your story using the smart phone or tablet you already own.

What is MoJo?
MoJo is Mobile Journalism – an area of journalism to have championed the use of mobile devices in filmmaking. The hashtag #MoJo on social media can be a great source of information and inspiration in equal measure. In June 2019 I attended the #MoJoFest conference in Galway, Ireland – this is my short film about the event.

Recent clients include:

  • The National Museum of Scotland

Tell me a fact and I will learn.
Tell me a truth and I will believe.
Tell me a story and it will stay in my heart forever.
