My name’s Jon Gill and I’m a filmmaker, designer and educator.

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.
In 2018 I used an iPad Pro to shoot and edit my first feature length documentary. Open/Close Dundee is a street art project where doors across the city, in hidden and forgotten spaces, have been transformed into an art trail.
The doc was screened on 19 May 2018 to 130 people at Dundee’s DCA cinema and has been described as “funny”, “warm” and “inspiring”.

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.
