Managing Big Projects

I’ve edited and produced some of the BBC’s most high-profile longform stories, many using Shorthand, a storytelling platform with strong visual impact.

Each of these stories involved coordinating the work of a writer, photographers, video journalists, data viz, legal and engineering teams — and making editorial decisions at each step along the way. Additional work is listed below each story.
